BX fonts at this time are compatible with Embrilliance keyboard lettering software. It is a file that is created by mapping alphabet design fonts in Embrilliance AlphaTricks. After the alphabet design font letters are mapped, the BX file is made and can be then installed in Embrilliance Essentials to choose from when using the keyboard lettering function.
Some vendors who offer alphabet design fonts (each letter/digit is a design at a specific size) will also offer the BX file for that alphabet design font so users of Embrilliance lettering software can also use it as a keyboard lettering font. More information about BX fonts can be found at the Embrilliance web site: Embrilliance embroidery software for Mac and PC
Note, to install a new font in a machine, you must contact and purchase from the machine manufacturer.
I purchased my designer se in 2006, and the frozen screen happened for the first time tonight as I was installing fonts on the machine. I did as suggested...got into update mode and installed the latest update and it worked! Thanks so much. I thought I would have to pay a lot of money to have the problem resolved. I am a happy DSE owner.
Try making the material tighter in the hoop and check your bobbin to be sure it's a L (look at your instruction manual...it will show you which bobbin works and which does not. I say this because you have a tension problem...dont we all, Ha Ha!
It sounds like a stabilizer prob. Try some better stabilibers maybe heavier. It may just need the be adjusted by a sewing technician at your local dealer. You can often take these in and have them hooped up and tested right there on the counter. I can do this at my store here in Portland, OR. They usually like them to run well or they get a bad rap. Just try better bobbin thread like anything but YLI. Try a different needle possibly. Or call Gary at 503-254-7317 and ask him what needle to use and what stabilizer and say Lin asked him to assist you. Tell him you are my friend.
This may be your stabilizer. What kind are you using? A good, solid foundation is important. If the fabric is allowed to stretch or move your embroidery will always be poor. Sweatshirts require considerable stabilization because they are very stretchy. If the sweatshirt is a high loft fleece you may also want a stabilizer on the top of your fabric. Try stitching the same letters on a piece of cotton fabric with a heavy tear away or cut away stabilizer. If it looks okay on that, it will look okay on the sweatshirt once it is stabilized.
Sounds like the needle to hook gap needs to be adjusted, i.e. the needle is striking the hook when in the lower position. As the needle becomes dull, it probably bends slightly causing more contact and hence breaking. I would try another dealer if you think that might help., You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
I looked forever to find this darn green bobbin screw. Around the opening for your bobbin is a plastic cover. If you slide it forward it will pop right off. Once you remove this, the bobbin case will lift right out. On the front you will see your green screw for adjusting your bobbin tension.
I don't think you can do 2 lines of text in the computer of the machine. If you have a software program that allows you to do lettering, you can do 2 or more lines. I haven't found anywhere in the instructions that really helps with lettering stored in the machine. I purchased Embroidery Magic 2 for $98. It is a powerful little program for the price and comes with 5 fonts. Also does manual digitizing (which I haven't really figured out yet). Do you have PED Basic to downloand designs from your computer to an embroidery card? If so you can download many free designs and purchase lettering at very good prices on many sites. Just remember that lettering purchased from the web doesn't not mean it is a keyboard font and you will need to combine letters to make words (treat each like a separate design). Maybe this will help.
The one thing I've found is that when using the fonts stored in the machine, you need to treat each as a separate design. Then you would change the size of the Center Letter. I, too, wish the manual was more instructive. It is much easier to use a separate software program where you can create lettering and monograming. Do you have PED Basic, the program that allows you to download from your computer? That is a very good investment (about $150) and you can get free designs and download purchased lettering from different web sites. There is also a good site www.embroiderydk.com where you can join for a small monthly fee and create lettering and monograming. You also have access to over 7000 designs that you can download free whenever you want. It is well worth the price of $9.00 per month and you don't have to be limited to a bunch of emboidery cards or just the built in designs on your machine. One final idea...go the Brother.com and request more instruction on the embroidery portion.
