design. The Split Block feature allows a single block to be
easily separated into multiple blocks to allow for greater
design manipulation and merging of design elements.

over 70 pre-set Satin fonts. These include compensated versions
for problem fabrics, fonts for small lettering and two colour

defined path as well as vertically. Height, font, bolden,
slant, spacing, placement and offset can all be manipulated
to produce any required arrangement of lettering. Text can
also be condensed to fit any width and stitching direction
can be easily changed to produce lettering for caps. The user
can also modify/create Satin effects allowing control over
stitch densities, underlays, compensation, stitch type etc.
The ability to use a Ceeding effect allows any of the available
fonts to be used at large sizes.
