Today's topic is Repeat Performances with Encore.
In mySewnet™ Embroidery and PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery , you'll find a fun function named Encore in the Embroidery module or application ( in the Mac Control Panel). Encore is designed to give you attractively arranged repetitions of selected design elements.
Some of you may have used Encore before to design a special border or frame an area, to create an oval shape, or to make fun and funky lines of repeats for a special project. Others may be fairly new to mySewnet™ Embroidery and PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery'r capabilities, so you haven't played as much with the abundant tools found there!
Let's revisit Encore today, and see if we can discover some new uses for this creative tool!
First, you'll need to select your Layout (Windows) or Type (Mac). Choices include Circle, Line, Shape or Hoop.
Then, choose whether to Position designs to repeat in a Standard manner (no Mirroring), or to Mirror (flip every other repeat to mirror the one before it, resulting in a mirrored pair).Each Layout/Type has specific features or settings:
Once you select a Layout, and the settings for your specific project, click Preview to see how the Encored items appear without finalizing your project (no select box is visible when in the Preview step). You can adjust any settings, or the Preview select box handles, as many times as you wish, simply making your changes and then clicking Preview again to refresh to the new settings!
Of course, if you change your mind and want to add, remove or use completely different embroidery designs, simply select Cancel so you can begin again.When you have an arrangement you love, use Apply to finalize your newly encored embroidery, and your new Encore confection will finalize with a select box! If you chose Group, a Group select box will enclose all the individual repeated design elements, ready for you to restrict/reveal the Group so you can adjust individual component parts!
Please check out the Inspiration section of this month's news for some Encore ideas that might be a little outside the box! Our goal is to get you inspired so you'll try something new with mySewnet™ or PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery software!
You don't have to be afraid of repeating yourself (or your embroidery designs) when you design with the Encore function from mySewnet™ Embroidery and PREMIER+™ 2 Embroidery .
With so many choices and so many variations before OR after you Encore (if you select Group, you can restrict/reveal the Groups and rearrange any way you please), you'll never run out of new ways to echo your designs!
Here are just a few repeating performances from Encore! Get inspired, and then get going with your own versions right away!
