To select the Opening object for transformation, use the Part Inspector window. Create Second Edge command works on columns and objects with two sides. These connections are marked by blue arrows.
The principle dmbird lettering digitizing is explained on a case of simple character “A”.
The second approach is not fully manual, in fact, and can use mnual tool to vectorize character. This column mode allows to digitize columns with janual number of nodes on each side. The last one is a Measurement Tool. Duplicate and Manial Horizontally and Duplicate and Mirror Vertically work in a similar way, but the axis of the symmetry is vertical and horizontal straight line passing through the first node. The second edge will be parallel to the first and the segment end will be placed after each element of edges.
Green arrows mark the center nodes of the curves. Please note that the end point of last column and whole character is in the bottom left corner of the last column green arrowbecause start point is in the top right corner. Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal manua vertical axes is explained on the following example: We will start a new column here. In case of multiple columns, connection must be used to ensure continuous sewing without jumps or trims.

Now select “Auto-Column” option in the parameters window and generate the stitches. Approach 2 – faster, but with less control In this case we will use automatic generation of stitches order auto-columnwhich creates stitches in required order automatically.
User cannot affect the order janual sewing within character, except definition of start and end point. Sfumato is an optional part of the Studio.
Use this command to assure there will be no jump stitch between the two objects. Reverse Nodes Order comes next; it changes the order of nodes. After generation of stitches the column object will look like this: Note that this object is listed in the Object Inspector list at the right side of the screen. The next command, Align End to Next Objectcauses the end of the object being edited to the beginning of the object to be created next.
Manual Digitizing of Lettering
This will place the end point at the right side. This tutorial deals with manual digitizing of small satin stitch lettering.
Please note that column object overlaps areas at left and right side to avoid gaps in stitching caused by pull effect of the fabric.
However, user has less control over the stitches order. It means that it does not snap selected node to nodes of actually edited object, only to nodes of other objects.
Now we need to start a new column at the bottom part of “A”but we need to get thread to this point to avoid jump. You can use “group 1” command that is intended for lowest level groups.
Main Menu – Edit
After generation of stitches the column object will look like this:. These commands help to locate first and last node on complex edges with large number of nodes. Finished character contains 3 columns and 2 connections. In this case we will use automatic generation of stitches order auto-columnwhich creates stitches in required order automatically.
If Finish Object or editing functions are not available grayed out more than likely the second side of object has not been drawn. Create first object by placing the first node blue arrowsecond node and then both edges of the column object. Two approaches are presented here: These commands, however, are supposed to be used with short-cut keys, not via this menu.
Although ‘Arrange Outline Parts’ function allows some deviation in parts placement, the use of this function may help to reduce ‘Parts are not close enough’ problems. Tools Basic tools for creation and editing of vector objects in Studio are located on a left-side panel.
When disabled, user can edit only last 2 nodes on each edge. Therefore, stop column at the top of “A”: Use Delete Whole Edge command to erase whole edge and start its creation anew. Digitizing of satin stitch lettering requires use of two tools: The corner at top part of “A” is too sharp for a single continuous column object. If underlying graphic template is clear and sharp enough, you can use trace tool to vectorize character edges instead of manual digitizing.
