When a machine does an "automatic buttonhole the feed does not move for a few stitches and maay jam if there are too many stitches made in this position. Is it an automatic buttonhole or can you choose how many stitches for your bartack? You ask about 0.5 well that is halfway between 0 and 1 on the stitchlength and this is indeed the recommended setting for buttonholes. If you are doing a manual buttonhole set your machine to this for the sides and zero for the bartacks but you only need about 6-10 stitches on the bartack. Fininsh it off securely by setting to straight stitch and stitch length zero for about 4 stitches to lock the thread in.

Have you made sure the buttonhole lever is in the buttonhole tab?
This tutorial will show you how to make a zig-zag buttonhole - http://www.ehow.com/video_4433258_making-hole-using-zigzag-stitch.html
The demo is a little sloppy. I stitch into the ends and I set the stitch length to zero when making the bar tacks across the ends. It takes a little practice.
I hope this helps.

Testimonial: "This is how I make button holes without the attachment. I thought maybe the machine might have a setting that would follow the diagramed design witho"
Go to the following site regarding timing your machine. Are you placing a button in the buttonhole foot so the machine "knows" how long to make the buttonhole? If you have a button stop lever to the left of your needle bar, are you pulling it down and putting it in FRONT of the button stop so it can complete the rotation?

your machine may have a button hole lever that has to be pulled
down before sewing, it should be on the left hand side of the needle
if that doesn't help then the machine may need to be checked

try changing the needle
make sure the button hole lever is pulled down, it should be on the left
hand side of the needle, if your machine has one
it's also possible that the machine needs to be checked to see if
there is something wrong with a gear or just needs some type of
adjust inside of the machine
