Mac software for embroidery Hi, all, just bumping the thread. As Matthias points out, his StitchBuddy is a great value. And although it is a competitor to Convert It, Mac, I'd like to say that we're all for Mac, and those of us producing solutions for the Mac community need to stick together. He has acknowledged our product and we reciprocate. If you are looking for a digitizer, there used to be Punto, which we haven't heard from in a while. There also was McStitch, but I don't know if that is active at all. WabbitWanch seems to have taken down all their stuff that supported the early MacPfaffies. We have duplicated those files, however in Convert It, Mac. We even got Classic on Intel running to test, and had some older MacPfaffies confirm our files are working. (Can you beleive there are still Classic Macs running PCD? Wow! But there are!) Regarding Convert It, Mac at MacEmb.com, it is very useful for browsing, colorizing, thread conversion and format conversion. It too has utilities for Designer 1 floppy and USB machines (saving a Mac user from needing Windows and Viking Disk Manager), bulk conversion, color sorting, basting, as well as removing hidden files so that machines are more Mac friendly. This includes the Brother/Baby Lock machines that use floppies and USB and machines like Janome 350e. It also reads and writes the latest Palette/PE-Design 9 files. Also we've just released at http://www.Embrilliance.com the Embrilliance Essentials program, and it does many things common to embroidery, up to digitizing. Merge designs, colorize, re-size with stitch recalculation, add lettering, monogramming, circle text, remove overlaps (our patent) and more. We are also working on a bezier-based Wilcom style digitizing system, which will come in levels of availability, starting with a 'training-wheels' version. We have been using this system behind the scenes for several years to create our Interactive designs for Designer's Gallery. Someone mentioned that Designer's Gallery had polled the community for Mac interest. That was because we make many of the DG products, and we wanted to see how broad the interest was. It wasn't then quite enough for us to take the brand in that direction, as that brand is sold exclusively through Baby Lock US dealers, and there might not be enough Mac users who have access to those dealers. That decision will ultimately be re-evaluated, but not immediately. Hence, we've launched Convert It, Mac and Embrilliance, which are available world-wide. It is our hope that Mac users find all the solutions available, and we hope they support all the developers working on Mac embroidery products. The market is still a bit small, and it is really a labor of love. Matthias and ourselves seem to be the only ones currently working in this area. Regards!
