Feature focus: Multi-level Break Apart Lettering in EmbroideryStudio e3
There are so many great features in the Wilcom Elements 3 product range, I need to start showing them off a bit. Here’s just one that was heavily requested by Wilcom users and has been a hit so far…
The Break Apart Lettering tool is a massive time saverwhen your customers logos are made up of lettering with different colors or shapes.Object properties can be edited separately for single lines, single words, or even single characters. The best part is that even when you break the lettering objects apart, they remain as editable text with the stitching sequence maintained.
How to use this feature:
Use Arrange > Break Apart to split composite objects – monograms, appliqués, lettering, etc – into component objects.
Applying the Break Apart function to a lettering object breaks it into a logical stitching sequence while maintaining lettering object characteristics. Object properties can be edited separately for single lines, single words, or even single characters. Stitching sequence is maintained.
Sequence logic is as follows:
- Multi-line lettering can be broken into separate objects per line
- Individual lines can be broken into separate objects per word
- Words can be broken into separate objects per letter.
- Use Arrange > Break Apart to split composite objects – monograms, appliqués, lettering, etc – into component objects.
- OpenType can be converted to embroidery lettering like a TrueType font
- Lettering broken apart into logical stitching sequence
- Letters can be broken into their individual embroidery patches.
- Lettering properties are lost but properties of each patch can be individually modified.
An exception for single-line (multi-word) objects is the case of the center-out stitching sequence. Such objects are broken apart directly into single-letter objects. The stitching sequence is thereby preserved.
If this is something that would save you time, consider getting Wilcom EmbroideryStudio e3 Designing today!
