Hello everyone, today we are going to show you how we can change the color of the DST file format.

It is not a difficult thing to handle, however, to ensure you do that properly you must follow all of the steps.

In order to do that you must have Wilcom application installed on your system, so let us guide you through a step by step procedure!

Open up your Wilcom application, it might take a while depending on your system; once it will have opened you will see a gray empty canvas on your screen.

Step 2:

After opening your application, on the menu bar click on the “File”, from the drop-down menu select “open design” you can also use your keyboard to do that, by pressing CTRL + O, doing this should open up a dialogue box, which will let you select your pre-existing DST file, select your file and click open.
