In reply to: sndm 's message, "This is the only embroidery software I have used...so when doing a satin stitch you place a point on each side of the line you are creating...so to get the width of the satin stitch to be consistent your points have to be placed equal width..." on Wednesday, March 13, 07:58:54am

My old software sounds similar to yours but it wasn't as commercial as Forte. Though I may not be using my V6 to it's fullest potential, I do one of two methods. If I'm doing knotwork, I treat each section as a closed object, follow my pointer around the outside of the area to be embroidered, then it fills it with satin stitch. I still have to adjust my angle lines to create the proper flow of the section and also have to make sure the width is even. Or if I'm outlining something, I just create a satin line as an open or closed object, filled or unfilled. That's the easiest but not always possible depending on your design. If anyone has other tips with V6 I'd love to hear too!!

In Artista V6, you can use the tool that looks like railroad tracks to do the "handpunched" satin stitch method the OP described, for those times you need more precision with angles. It is more tedious to resize than the open object satin line, but it offers more precise angle definition. (NT)BJ, Irish SeamsThursday, March 14, 11:22:32am
