Aligning monograms - alphabet letters

Posted by classynsassy (My Page) on

I have collected lots of alphabets (JEF format) and love them; however, if a create 3 letter monogram or a name I cannot bring the individual letters into one file, neatly aligned and save to my memory card for my Janome 300e.

Monogram Wizard uses only their monograms and, as I understand, Melco Sizer doesn't yet allow you to work with JEFs.

I love to monogram but want to do more than single letters - need some help, please

Does your machine have an on screen edit feature where you can bring them up & set letter by letter? Mine does, then a select mode where I can move them around in all kinds of directions. Once I get them where I want them, I can save it for future use.

I use Embird to merge patterns and create monograms. It is a great program and not too expensive.

I also vote for embird. You can get a 30 day free trial, and it does so much for you. Go to the link below. The lady who owns this site is really helpful too.

RE: Aligning monograms - alphabet letters

Thanks all for the advice. My machine does have an onscreen edit feature, but I find that the alphabet letters do not always align just right (one letter may be spaced diferently from another). I understand the Dakota Sizer will do what I need (IF) it allows editing and saving of JEF's. Again, thank, I'm investigating all your advice.
