There is a Facebook group that is just for Stitch Artist called StitchArtist Addicts. I use the paid version of Alpha Tricks & love it. There is also a free version of Alpha Tricks that you can use with more limitations.
Check out the you tube videos from Embrilliance/Briton Leap.

I love Embrilliance. Alpha Tricks allows you to take fonts and alphabets you already have in your library and convert them to BX format and thus be able to use them in Essentials to type out words rather than having to add each individual letter and line them up. If you can digitize and save in BX format you probably don't need Alpha Tricks. Hugs. Nan W
