How to Merge Files with Sew What Pro

This tutorial will help you to be able to make your own name or wording with Sew What Pro in
just a few easy steps.
1. Ensure that you have the correct hoop size set for your machine.
For this tutorial we will be using the 4x4 hoop size with the machine format of PES
If you need to change your hoop size, select the hoop icon in the top tool bar and there
will be a new window that opens.

Once the new window comes up you can choose your file type and hoop dimensions.
Notice that you can also set this to be your default setting.
This comes in handy when your machine has a 4x4 stitch field.
2. Now that you have your hoop size set, click on the file button at the upper left hand
corner of your tool bar.
You can also do a CTRL+M

3. The next window that opens will be the screen where you choose your first letter.
This is where you will choose the alphabet you want to use.
For our example we will be merging the letters to make the name Mary in the Curlz font.
You must know where you have stored your files.

4. Repeat this process until you get all of the letters you need for your name or word.
5. Now you will arrange/align your letters in the way you wish for them to look.
To do this simply click and drag on a letter that you have merged.
If you want your name to be straight across, use the grid lines to help you get them even.
I found it much easier to align each letter after merging it to the grid. For example once I
brought the M in to place it where I wanted it to be and then make any final adjustments
after all the letters were merged, but this is just a personal preference.
6. Lastly you will save your design.
To save your design to your computer:
To do this click on the file button at the top left corner of the tool bar, and then click on
save as
This will bring up one more box where you can choose what you would like to name the
file.
I chose to name my file mary
