I merged 7 files here of letters that make up the word "Mitchell". I have them all laid out the way I want them and they're in only 1 file now, but I'm seeing that they're going to stitch completely out of order. I'm not able to figure out how to get them to start stitching with the M and end at the L.

Any help would be really appreciated!

You can drag and drop the letters into order over on the right, just by clicking the little picture. Or you can right click each letter and rearrange the order (there's an "order" option) from there (complicated).

Or you could start again, and add the letters in sequence.

Do you have the font engine?

Oh yeah, you're going to have to separate the design again to drag and drop. I almost never make a design one file until I'll ready for color sort.

No font engine! But I didn't realize that about the right-hand column (good to know!). I did find a "bring to front" option when you right click on the letter, so I did that down the line and it stitched out correctly--making the last letter the most "in front". I didn't realize that about the layering of the files until I'd already done it all mishmash.

Thanks very much! Tomorrow I get to start the Bernina software training, but somehow I'm thinking it won't make me brilliant at Embird. Hopefully somethings will apply across the board though.

The one file didn't merge the letters, they were still separate entities at that point. I was just afraid I was going to lose the thing after I'd had to figure it all out. Of course the second time is never as painful as the first!
