I have a satin stitch frame design that doesn't stitchout the way it looks in my software. In the software, the width of the stitching is the same everywhere. When I stitch it out on my machine the top to bottom sides are the right width, but the left to right sides are about an eighth of an inch narrower. Is this something I can fix?

It could also be that your screen is not calibrate when you open your
software. If there is a grid, measure it to see if they sqaures are indeed
square. Hope it helps

I think she is talking about the width of the stitching - with the columns being a different size rather than the shape being skewiff.

Yes, the width of the stitching changes.

Yes, the columns stitch in different widths.

Is the design very large? Hard to suggest anything without seeing the actual design and who digitized it.

Have you tried rotating the design just to see if it makes a difference.

Yes...rotate, flipped, rotate/ that it's been stitched out in all the orientation ways possible. Did not help.

This has to do with pull compensation,,,depending on the type of fabric you are using,,,and stabilizer it will do this.
Not sure how to fix after the fact.
