Question about Husqvarna Sewing Machines
The Husqvarna Designer Ruby can read a number of embroidery file formats: .SHV, .DHV, .HUS, .VIP, .VP3, .PEC, .PCS, .SEW, .JEF, .EXP, .10*, and .DST. One other embroidery file format is accepted. See the manual. It can read the .SH7 stitch format files and .VF3 embroidery font files. It can also read .HTM/ .HTML and .TXT files. With the complimentary 5D software (or a similar package), you can convert most other embroidery files to one that is compatible with the Designer Ruby.
The documentation for many Husqvarna Viking sewing machines is available here: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/Support . The manual and other useful information for the Designer Ruby is here: http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/support/DESIGNER-RUBY . The current link to the manual is http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/SiteMedia/Products/Machines/Support/Designer_Ruby_manual_ENG_A.pdf?ext=.pdf . The file extensions are listed on page 9:2 (page 100 of the PDF).
I hope this helps.
(I will admit to mostly using the .HUS files with the Designer Ruby.)

Use program compatibility wizard and you'll be able to use the same program in Windows XP also.

There are two ways to convert the True Type fonts on your computer to embroidery. One is within the program, one is independent. To locate the independent one, locate your Programs folder on your computer then the folder containing your embroidery software. There should be a QuickFont.exe file there you can use. The best way however is to use the one within the program. On your Letter tab, up where the types of fonts are listed with radio buttons, there should be a QF icon. Click on that and you are away. The two programs are not exactly the same and whilst I have forgotten the differences, the one inside the customising program is the better one to use.

The rose has been around a long time, I had one, $200 is a good deal, but I would recommend that you at least buy a designer, you'll be glad you did.
