Log in to Reply Jeannine James on February 20, 2018 at 4:47 pm This is a tip for QBOT users. When you import designs into QBOT, it’s a good idea to reduce nodes before you use the design (the designs that came with your QBOT are already reduced). You can do this from Design Management. A complex design can have tens or hundreds of thousands of nodes, requiring more processing by QBOT and slowing you down. Many designs can be reduced and stitch out just fine. As you reduce, you can see the design on your screen, so you don’t want to reduce so much it affects the design. For example, I have a design that has almost 30,000 nodes. I reduced it to 34% of that and it stitched out just fine, you can’t tell the difference. Happy quilting! Log in to Reply Jeannine James on February 27, 2018 at 10:11 am Hello Bella peeps!
