Loading a Design

How to Load a Design

This section will walk you through loading a design to your machine. There are multiple ways to accomplish this, but for now, we will stick to the main two commands.

• Load Design
• Load Design Wizard

The Load Design command will simply load a design to the selected machine or machines. The Load Design Wizard will load the design to the selected machine, but it will also prompt you to set the colour sequence, select the hoop, and set the Acti-feed.

NOTE: When you are ready to load the next design, you do not need to delete the current design. You simply load a new design. It will replace the current one in the machine.
