Converting PHC files to PES or JEF :-






Sorry if this seems like a silly question. I decided to use Brother's in-machine editing (Brother Quattro 2) to quickly jazz up a design that I bought from Emblibrary and saved it to the users designs section, but now wanted to do some more fine tuning and adjusting of that design on my computer, but none of the programs I currently have will allow me to do that. Does any one know of any embroidery software programs that actually can be used to CONVERT PHC files to another format - I have come across several that can open PHC files for viewing but none that can actually edit & save them in another format? Or will I need to scrap what I've done on my machine & start over again, doing all the editing on my computer first?

I have been correcting design flaws and formats with the free Wilcom Trusizer e3.0 free download. I'm not positive but, I think that
http://www.wilcom.com
will get you there.
It is very easy to open the design and save it in the choice of format you want.

Both PHC and PEC are in the Embird list - along with many others I've never heard of!

Please follow dragonflyer's advice and find out how to edit you post. It is a very useful skill to learn! I need it all the time.

Thanks for your advice - post is now edited - and I have learned my lesson to stay away from the computer when I have a migraine.

Sorry, Cuties, I am guilty of a "typing error" - my question should have been about programs for converting PHC format files, not PEC.

Maybe this is not what you are asking but you can go into EmbLibrary to your orders and find your design and redownload it in any format.

I am pretty sure Embird will convert PEC files...Embird even reads the PHC files I save from my BabyLock back onto my USB stick...PEC is a regular file format in Embird...It also looks like the Wilcom TrueSizer can use PEC files as well...and it is a free program...PEC is listed along with all of the other formats here too...Also my Janome MBX software reads and saves to PEC...so lots of choices!

Thanks very much for your suggestions - actually, I had a monster pre-storm migrain headache when I asked this question and I meant to say PHC, not PEC - sorry re the typing error.
