Hi all!

I am a new owner of a Husqvarna Designer SE and I have no software for it
yet other than that which comes with the machine.

I have been told that if I wish to enlarge a pattern it can be done from
the base software that comes with the machine but so far I am only able to
enlarge them by 10-15%

Is there a way to enlarge a pattern more than this with the base software
or must I purchase the 4D to get that functionality

Thanks very much, I`m new and trying to learn quickly.

Congrats on your SE- I have had mine for two years. To really enjoy your
machine, you really need the 4D software. They don't tell you that when
you buy the machine- but you can't download all the wonderful patterns
from the web- or do creative things with the patterns without it. I also
recommend taking all the classes you can find on your sewing machine and
on 4D. We have a monthly club for the 4D as well as the machine, and I
have learned a lot!

The problem with enlarging/shrinking designs by much more than 10% is
that the stitch density of the designs is changed significantly. I can't
remember if the Designer SE has a built-in function that allows you to
maintain that density when changing the size of designs.

This is one solution:

The 4D professional changes the stich density when enlarging or shrinking
but the stitches may not lay as nice when changing the size alot.
