“String rotate angle”: the rotating angle for whole letter string.
“Char height scale”: increase or reduce the height of letter.
“Char width scale”: increase or reduce the width of letter.
“Density”: means distance between each stitch within letter design. The value is smaller, the density is higher.

3 Adjust Letter Design
- Letter Design Adjustment Interface
Letter design adjustment interface is shown as below:
The operation key is divided into 8 rows in the screen, the first three rows are the function keys for adjusting the arrangement of the letters(for whole rank), the second three rows are the keys for adjusting the selected letters, and the last two row are the function keys for the function of view and files. The centre of screen is the area to show letter design.
Generally, user should set the parameters, such as whole arrangement method of letter string, rotate angle of letter string and interval of letter string (The keys of the first three rows at the right side of the screen); select the very letter, and then adjust the arrangement parameter of that individual letter.
Letter design display window: the crosses at centre are the coordinate; intersection is origin (0,0). The letter rank surrounds the origin automatically.
- View and File Operation
“Stitch Form”: show/hide the stitch form. Hiding the stitch form can improve operation speed.
“Move”: Move the letter design manifestation window, to check different part of thedesign. Clicking this key can show or hide the 5 direction keys that are used to move the diagram.

“Down Arc”: Rank letters in arc bending downwards
“Fix Letter Direction”: When user ranks the letters in arc, the letter angle will not change along with the position of arc, but fix at a certain angle
“Angle follow”: When user ranks the letters in arc, the letter angle will change along with the position of arc (letters will be vertical to the arc)
“Increase Radian”: When user ranks the letters in arc, this key can enlarge the radian of reference arc
“Reduce Radian”: When user ranks the letters in arc, this key can reduce the radian of reference arc
“Whole Anticlockwise Rotate”: Anticlockwise rotate the whole letter bound
“Whole Clockwise Rotate”: Clockwise rotate the whole letter bound
“Extend Letter Interval”: Increase the interval between the letters
“ReduceLetter Interval”: Reduce the interval between the letters
- Keys for Selecting Letter at Adjustment
“Selection Switch”: switch the selected letters. User has to select a certain letter and then to carry out the edition for it. The red“＋”in the center of letter means the letter has been selected . The system will pick out all letters as default. After user clicks the “select switch” key, the system will pick up the first letter, and then pick up the second, depending on this kind to push.
