Embroidery Machine Connection
Use the USB cable to connect the embroidery machine with the PC. The MS Windows hardware wizard will automatically start searching for the respective drivers in order to install the machine on the system. During software installation, many Janome machines will be installed. If MS Windows is not able to find the driver of the Embroidery machine, you might need to install the driver from the CD that came with the Embroidery machine. After successful installation of the Embroidery machine, you are ready to send designs from Artistic Digitizer.
Use the USB cable to connect the embroidery machine with the computer. MAC OS will connect the device automatically. You can then send an embroidery design to your machine through Artistic Digitizer. If the machine is not detected by the software, all the export options will be disabled.
Digital Cutter Connection
All cutters come with an installation CD or you can download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website. Connect the cutter with the computer and install the driver.
After driver installation, Artistic Digitizer will be able to connect with the Cutter immediately. If you cannot find the cutter or it is disabled, then you must check if the cutter was installed properly. The same applies both to MS Windows® and MAC OS® systems. For MS Windows® systems, most cutters are supported either directly or by exporting the relative file that they can read. For MAC OS systems, not all cutters are supported for direct connection. You will have to check the manufacturer’s website for relative drivers although most cutters are supported by exporting the design from the software to the file format that they can read.
There are 5 techniques available "Stencil", "Embroidery", "Cut", "Crystals", "Paint".

Lettering and Monogramming
Lettering is one of the most important tools to your designs using the various text tools. Generate unique embroidery in most existing languages sizes using the powerful Text tool. You can easily merge lettering and add any stock design with just a few clicks of your mouse. All the fonts that are installed in windows are available you to create Text Art designs easily.
Plus, you can edit text, change text orientation, shape it, take out overlapping, see a 3D preview, view a stitch-out (slow redraw) same as the machine stitching out.
When importing artwork from other sources, you should always have in mind, the limitations about embroidery designs. If you import a vector design that has 50 colours it would be too difficult to produce with so many colour changes. Additionally, the available colours of each thread palette are limited. The "colour manager" can always help us optimize and handle the colours of a design. Using the "Colour manager" you can “· Reduce the colours of a design” “Edit the colours on colour wheel” “Apply a Thread palette to all design colours” “Apply colour harmonies to all design colours”
