Here are some new features available in version 16.
Emblems Tool – Blends Category
The new Blends category within the Emblems makes easy work of blending colours. There are 4 blend effects in two styles. The single colour blend has graduated stitching in a single colour to give the impression of a graduated effect. The 3 other effects allow you to blend, 2, 3 and 4 colours together.
Layers is a great new tool for editing complicated designs. You can place your digitised outlines or blocks of stitching in individual layers. Each layer can be hidden or locked, this makes the editing of complex designs much easier as you can lock or hide everything except the layer you are working on, so no more accidental moving or deleting the wrong thing.
Running Line Text
Try one of our three running line fonts. You can assign a standard running effect or a running line pattern for something special.
Freehand Running Line Input
The freehand digitising tools is great for line work and ideal if you use a tablet and pen.

Badge Maker Tool
The new badge maker tool allows you to create appliqué and stitched badges quickly and easily. The simple wizard walks you through the whole process giving you the option of creating one badge or filling the frame.
