Re: Using EQ6 with embroidery designs
- Another option than using the Embroidery format along with an RGB file is using a picture of the embroidery it works well. EQ 6 also uses pictures
What software do you use? Most software packages can convert files to other formats, but as someone said, it may not save the color information.
While you can use pictures of your embrodiery designs, you can't resize the picture or change the color of the background (with out creating a new picture), or change thread colors.
So, if you want to play around with your designs, and designing a quilt, the best way would be convert your designs to .EXP format,as that will give you the most options to play around with in EQ.
Also, if you want to combine embroidery designs into a quilt block, and then play with those blocks in EQ, it is faster and easier to create your quilt blocks in your embroidery software, rather than trying to do that in EQ.

> Hello. I'm brand new to EQ6, just installed and I am trying to learn how to use it. One of the main reasons I purchased it was so I could incorporate my embroidery designs for my Viking embroidery machine into quilts. Now, I'm reading in the book that only one type of embroidery design is allowed and it's not Viking. Does anyone use EQ6 for designing quilts with embroidery, how does it work out?? Thank you in advance for help and direction.
