Outlines & Offsets MBX V5.5 provides tools for quickly generating outlines based on existing boundaries. Use the Outlines & Offsets tool to highlight details such as small satin objects or to create seamless borders. You can auto-outline designs in backstitch, stemstitch, pattern run as well as in sculpture stitch and zigzag.
Stitch Player Stitch Player allows you to see how your design will be stitched out. It now includes a color list too. Watch the stitch sequence and make changes before the needle makes its first move. You can even choose to move the start and end points.
Multi-Hooping If your embroidery is too large or contains multiple designs spaced around an article, you can use the Multi-Hooping toolbox to split it into multiple hoops. This can now be done in just 1 click! Each single hoop contains an object or group of objects that can be stitched out. These can then be stitched consecutively to form the whole design. Send these directly to your machine or save to a file.
Color PhotoStitch Automatically create embroidery versions of your photos in a few clicks. Choose number of thread colors, desired resolution and even combine with lettering or designs.
