I did long time before I got my Embird and and was able to do a couple of design with it however, it is quite complicated and not so user friendly as others. I as Martine had some errors and the program closed on me, it was frustrating, but oh well free.

to tell you the truth i downloaded it and opened it up and sat infront of the screen thinking to myself..."NOW WHAT DO I DO???" and that is as far as i got. maybe a long time before i open it again
thank you for your input!

They have a few tutorials that you can watch, they helped me out figure out part of the program, the other part was experimenting and reading the help files.

I also downloaded it some time ago, but have never been able to do anything with it.

maybe that will be me also, it looks like it is really hard when you don't know what you are doing!

Hi, I don't know the program you're referring to, so I can't tell you. I use Janome's Digitizer Pro, which is a really powerful (and really expensive) program. A lot of people seem to like Embird, there seem to be a lot of tutorials on it, and there's a free trial to see if you like it. Using a digitizing program is just like using any other computer program, you have to learn and master the commands, understand what the program does and how it does it. That just takes time, no matter what program you're using. The second part is to understand digitizing itself, and how the design that physically sews out differs from the design as it looks on your computer screen. You have to understand underlay, push-pull compensation, pathing, etc. Digitizing is not an easy thing to learn, but it is a very rewarding thing to learn! If you're patient, find the right program for you, and find good tutorials or teachers, I think you'll have a good time with it. Just don't believe anyone if they say all you have to do is "click to digitize", you will never be satisfied with auto-digitizing. It is NOT that easy, no matter what they say, hee hee hee. Best of luck to you, Marji

thank you Marji for your answer, I will try and learn the commands but it is very hard when you do not know what command you need.

I downloaded it some time ago and played around a bit with it. I like the node system they use, but as soon as I made a mistake (due to being used to my 3D Pro) the program not only gave an error message, but closed down, which I found quite annoying. I have since bought Embird, which is not too expensive and great to use.
