Frequently Asked Questions

Branching is a modern feature that lets you digitize similar, overlapping objects, for example, the fingers of a hand, or sections of a custom alphabet, without having to consider the most efficient stitching joins and sequence. Apply the command to join selected objects to make a single compound object. Elements are sequenced, connectors lessened, and stitches are regenerated. Every element object is grouped and selectable as one.

The branching feature smartly sequences objects and then groups them so a start and end point could be allotted to the group. Every object should be overlapped by another object that is to be branched in the group. Overlapped segments would be hidden behind objects that will be in the stitch order later. For the branching tool, the keyboard shortcut is I or the icons could be found in the arrange toolbar or under the arrange menu. The procedure is to select every object to be branched and then use the shortcut key or icon, then you would be prompted to digitize a start and then finish point. The prompt bar is placed along the bottom of the work area. In the case of a running stitching line, the entry and exit point must be at the same place, if you want to have two passes of stitching everywhere this would make a runs stitch out and one back so every stitching line is duplicated on the backtrack to the endpoint. If it doesn’t matter that several parts of the design have 2 runs and others have 3 then the start and finish points could be at separate places. The start and finish points could be moved, with the help of a reshaped tool, to any appropriate place even after the branching has been finished. The software would re-path to accommodate the new place automatically.
