Hello all, Question, files ending in ".edr, .jpg.bak and pes.bak" are there for a reason but I just don't know why. I only use the .pes file and delete the rest and my designs work perfectly... comments.... and how would I use them?

Connie if you look under the Q&A section of Cute you will find lots of information about how Cute works including sending a PM

Actually, I don't keep any except the format I use. they take a lot of memory and with the tens of thousands of designs I have, those take up too much memory. I don't even save the .jpg files as my computer and embroidery machine show the designs. I've never had a problem just keeping the .pes. file.

I guess these files are not very important!!!

Good question! I always wondered what it was for and automatically deleted it.

Hi Dolly. I am hoping the .jpg.bak is their backup copy of a .jpg. If so, it will enable your computer to show you a picture of the design file stitchout. Always good to see your happy face pop up here on Cute.

I believe the .edr extension is the native object file for Embird...

It is the colour chart in Embird

Thanks Moips, And when we delete it, how does it effect the final design???

dollygk by dollygk 15 Nov 2022

Color chart, is there any way we can see what it says??? It would hold the numbers of the spools as well, Yes??

This is a good question to ask, especially for any of our new embroiders. As far as I know, we only need the format our machines use.

He He.,.. so you don't know either... as most of us as well!!! When I upload the .pes design to my machine it does a great stitch out SO we don't really need them.

a *.bak" file is created during work as an intermediate backup and is quasi useless, you can delete it unseen, hugs Maria
