Where is that great trick
changing colors with Embird?
If you have
Embird version 2003
later version), you can load the colors from the color change sheet into a design with just a few steps.
You'll need a
.txt file of the printable
color change sheet, give it the same name as the design file, and put
both files in the same folder. We'll show you how it's done!
Go to the design on the website and click
the "Color Change Sheet" link (you can also find a link to the
color change sheets in your order history).
Click the "Download TXT File"
This is the color change sheet that is formatted properly for uploading
Click on the drop-down box for 'file type'
and choose '.txt file' or 'text document.'
Name the file the same name as the design.
For example, this design is named H1719.dst, so I gave the color
sheet this name: H1719.txt.
Put both the embroidery file and .txt file
in the same folder.
Embird. In Manager
mode, click on Options and make sure that "Support Palette Files" is
Direct Embird to the folder that contains the design and .txt file of
the color change sheet.
Open the design, and the colors in the .txt
file will be inserted into the design.
If some colors are
changed, but not all, look at the .txt file. Make sure that the
words "Madeira Rayon" precede each thread number. Eliminate the
pound sign (#).
