Does anyone know why a design would look fine in stitch simulator

(PeDesign 6) and then when stitched out a whole section (1/2"x3/4") in the middle of the design would not stitch out?

Sounds as if your machine didn't read it correctly. Try deleting design and down load again and stitch out sample first.

well yes I am deleting it from my collection without a doubt, the reason I didn't do a test stitch on it is a financial one. I can not afford the materials to test out the 30 designs I put onto this quilt, and really the time either so I just prayed that all would be good and for the most part they were.

Miss charlie Can u mayb embroider on another piece of fabric & put that patch in the blank design area.? Don't have a clue as to what material or your design is. Hope we can get it fixed up for u though. Is this for your new granddaughter? *

May be the file you got it is alreay enlarge. In 4D Extra, there is button which is proportional enlarge or reduce. I used that to fix the similar problem by using similar other design to put to the missing spot. Or I use sewing machine free hand to sew the missing part. Actually the second option came out better. You may want to try. Let me warm you. It is time consuming.

Oh, boy, I hope you got this fixed!! Luckily my Digitizer Pro hasn't 'lied' to me yet about the design being ok. Best of luck to you, hope you can fix it. If all else fails, how about fabric paint? My Ginghers and I put a nice hole in a design I did for my step-daughter, she fixed it with paint. Best of luck to you!! Marji

Not yet Marji, was going to take a pic of it, but it seems that I am just having some issues at the moment and now my batteries are dead. I am recharging them and will post a pic of the ugly mess when they charge.

i have pe design 6 and this has happened to me before when i enlarged a design too much for the number of stitches. you can make it denser but there will still be areas that have no stitches. when it happened to me i saw a small gap that i was able to sew straight lines with my sewing machine. i just used the same embroidery thread used on the design to match. that fixed it for me without it being noticeable. if it was any bigger gap i would have had to take all the stitches out and start over with the original size or one not enlarged as much. i have found that pe design can be deceptive at times too. it is not always the true realistic view it shows!

I didn't alter the design if I had I would've been sure to test stitch it. This is not a small area unfortunately , but I think I will have to freehand embroider it with the machine UGH!!!

Was the design maybe too big for the hoop and PeDesign split it to be sewn in 2 sections? I know that happens when you convert to a sew format and the design is to big, the digitizer will automatic split it into two designs, a and b.A is sewn first, then b.Just check to see if you have 2 parts.If you have 2 parts, don't take the first part out of the hoop.

I did not convert the design in any way, all I did was run stitch simulator on the design because I can't afford the materials or the time to test stitch 30 designs that are going on this quilt.

if you've left it in the hoop you should be able to use your 'next' button on your machine to jump to the next section or color until you get where you need to be. If you've unhooped it, forget it you'll never match it up, just start over. Good luck. ALso sorry I have no idea why the center woulnd't stitch out unless there is a problem in the design itself.

No it is not in the hoop and I will have to post a pic of it so you can see what I am talking about. I can't start over it is already stitched out onto the blanket I have to find a way to fix it.
