Has anyone that uses Embird also got the new Janome 500E. I need to know what everyone is doing to get the new hoop sizes into the software. Thanks

Just noticed that Embird has caught up and in 2015 version the 500E frames are listed.

I updated Embird to 2015 thinking it would have the new hoop sizes for the 500E but it didn't. I just went into Custom and typed in my measurements for the hoop I wanted to use. Works well for me a sI only have the 2 hoops at present. I am sure Embird will catch up soon.

My new machine came with 4 new hoops, the RE28b 7.9x11, the SQ20b 7.9x7.9, the RE20b 5.5x7.9, and the SQ14b 5.5x5.5. I have never added any custom hoops before. I looked around today but still not real sure about what I was doing. I ended up not creating anything.

Ok, I have one more question. Will I have to create the custom sizes in both places. Thank you both

I only have Embird Basic...can't speak for Studio...try it in Basic and if it is not there in Studio...make them there too...

In Studio go to Preferences and set the hoop size by clicking on width and height - it is not saved as in Editor, but you can set it as default if that hoop is your preferred one.

In Embird Basic in the Hoop Tab, you can create a custom size hoop for whatever size hoop you need if there is not one already listed that will work...

In Studio, you can input your own measurements for the hoop size.
I'm not sure what the new hoop sizes are, but I suspect they are already in the Embird list.
