Using the Slice Tool you can quickly cut out specific areas of your design and save them as new designs. It's a great way to create complementary designs for a project. We saved this flower section and used it to create the wreath and border designs below.
Control the direction, and spacing of repeated designs along with alignment stitch properties.
The same embroidery design can be used to create a repeating border. The Border Wizard automatically adds alignment stitches so that your border designs stitch correctly at the machine.
I use BuzzEdit constantly to help me in my designing and editing for my creations that feature on my website. It is simple and fast to use. Actually it inspired me to expand on my ideas for designs. I could not do without BuzzEdit and BuzzSize...
