Experience the luxury of professional digitizing capabilities with Brother's PE-Design 10 a step up again from the previous version next. Including a brand new, but familiar interface, PE Design 10 brings even more editing capabilities to your computer.
New to version 10 is USB dongle security device, this replaces the old card reader. Installation is quick and easy directly from the USB stick.
Another new feature we like, not a major main-blowing addition, but one which makes working using the software faster. Now searching for designs is a simple as looking for a image on your PC. PD design 10 now uses the explorer interface.
New also is the ability for setting up guidelines, which is a big help for positioning and aligning various elements while creating a design.
PE-Design 10 takes digitizing and embroidery to the next level of creativity with exceptional new features. A user-friendly graphical interface, similar to many software programs on the market today, makes it easy to locate and select the dynamic functions of this software. In addition, the quick access toolbar allows you to customize your favorite operations so they are only a quick click away.
For business users, PE design 10 allows up to four PR-1000 and upgraded PR-650 machines to be linked from a single computer with queue functionality. Other time savers are the lettering and design template feature, applique and cutwork wizard are both new. Improved photo stitch with new colour settings.
Many other exciting features such as enhanced lettering, more stitch and pattern variations and more built-in fonts have been added 6 small fonts (size 6mm or smaller) and 120 other fonts will make your digitizing and lettering projects a breeze.
The Brother PE Designs 10 embroidery software can convert any image, even photos! in colour and monochrome capability.
Auto Punching, automatically sets the colour regions in order to create the embroidery stitches from a photo or clip art.
New embroidery block fill's, multiple stitch direction, net fill stitch and with chain stitch border or outlines.

Built-in Fonts - Including capability to automatically digitize True Type fonts which are already located on your PC.
Stitch Edit Points - Change stitch entry and exit points, insert, move or delete stitch points.

Being able to select your fabric type in the software is a great advantage because the software will adjust the design automatically for optimum results. This helps to eliminate outlines being out of registration and adds under sewing for extra stability where needed. There's also a suggestion for the kind of stabiliser you might use.
Create a badge or applique from virtually any design, including text, with the new patch wizard and use the enhanced applique wizard to create appliques of entire words at a time. The new stitch direction setting feature allows you to create multiple stitch directions within a single shape, and the improved stitch to block feature keeps your sewing attributes and stitch types as you resize your designs. The enhanced stitch density setting allows you to double the stitch density, for great results when using puffy foam as your base.
