Question / Issue
Can I take a split design into BuzzEdit and make it whole?

Answer / Solution

Yes, if you have smaller sections of a design that fit together to make a larger design you can easily combine them into the larger design using BuzzEdit.  As hoop sizes get larger, this is a great way to simplify your stitching time at the machine.

To do this, open the original design into BuzzEdit and convert it to the format you need if necessary (BuzzTools > Convert Embroidery Design).

If you need to change the hoop size do so from the View > Hoop Properties menu.

Go to the File > Insert Design to select the stitch file you wish to combine with the one you have open.

Choose to insert at the end of the design to ensure that these stitches stitch after the first.

The stitches will be placed at the end of the design, but it will be centered in the hoop of the current design.  While it is selected in SPACE, you will wan to move it so that it is lined up with the original design.

Once you have lined up the sections to create the whole design, you can center the combined design (BuzzTools > Center > Both), sort colors, as you would any other design.

Be sure to save your work, File > Save As, under a new name to retain the original design.
