I am a newbie to this forum and so forgive me if I am out of line

I have pedesign lite am looking to upgrade for fonts and digitizing Does anybody know which would be a better choice the pedesign 7 or the Embird? I have a Brother 8500 and used to use pedesign 3/4 till new computer and it doesn't work with Vista

Thanks

If you go to secretsof.com they have information on the PE Design vs. Embird. I am doing the same thing as you. However, from what I am reading Embird is not compatible with VISTA yet.

Hi, Embird is Vista compatible from what I understand. I use is soly in my digitizing business. I started with embird because it was the more affordalbe option. And 5 years of digitizing for a living, I've looked at the other, more expensive programs like PE design, Corel Drawings etc and they don't have any more functionality than Embird, so I'm still with it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Jolson's Designs

I purchased the Innov'is 4500D and received PE Design 7 with the machine. I have not been able to learn this digitizing program and was wondering if the Embird is more user friendly? I am looking at purchasing it through Secrets of Embroidery website and hope that the free tutorial that comes with the program will detail how to use the software. I really want to digitize company logo's so do I need to purchase additional plug-ins to do this? Thanks for any help.
