Sorry Janet but I don't think it would be feasible to do this because embroidery machines have their own little quirks that seem to come into play when you change from one format to another.
Sometimes a particular machine will require a couple of starting stitches off to one side or to the top, or to the bottom, and after having stitched some designs like that I have found they drive me insane, so I always advance my machine a couple of stitches to try and skip them.
To digitise a travel stitch, at the end of each segment, into designs, would probably have every other person up in arms complaining about the new style.
Some newer machines do have trim, bobbin or park, (hoop position) option and they make it easier to cut your threads in between thread changes.
If your machine doesn't have this option, you could try putting your needle down into the work and try to pull the bobbin thread to the top (if the machine trims it)
If the machine doesn't trim the bobbin, you shouldn't need to cut the bobbin thread, it should start stitching the next segment neatly, as long as you haven't loosened the bobbin thread by moving the hoop too much.
All my machines have a trim feature that cuts the bobbin thread at thread changes, but I have it turned off as they all stitch better if I leave the bobbin thread alone.
After I have threaded the needle I move ahead to the next section and manually do one stitch, which shows me if the bobbin thread is still firm enough to just start stitching.
I do hope this helps. Hugs n roses, Meganne
Sorry Meganne, after all tahat typing, I do have the facility to move the hoop forward into the position I need to get to the threads I want to trim. My question ended up in two parts and debleerl gave me the info about the 'park' button. I've written a reply in 'part two'??? thanks again, Jan
ananswer in 'Part two'??? Thanks again, Jan
My machine stops between colors. I have a park the hoop option I can manually do while machine is stopped. You did not say what kind of machine you have so people who know that machine can answer if you can do this manually. Do not know any digitizing code to do this, sorry.
Thanks Sandy, I'm glad the answer was under my nose all the time. Jan
TTT, just to keep the question together.
I've made a mess of it and ended up with my question in two parts, sorry. Jan
