Designer Plus v6

Postby kjwarnold » Fri Jan 07, 2011 9:16 pm

I finally got around to loading my Designer Plus v6 software today. All I've done was click around on some things and look at the Online Manual a little bit. But one question - why can't I click on the Art Canvas tab? It's showing but the letters are a lighter blue than the other tabs and it doesn't do anything when I click on it. I couldn't find anything about that in the manual; it always just says "Switch to Art Canvas mode."

Do you have an embroidery design open? You have to have a design before you can switch to Art Canvas.

No, you can go directly to Art Canvas from a blank screen. All tabs should be equal in color and equally "clickable".

I don't know what it could be. Are you using Windows 7? XP? If you dealer has a tech person, you might ask them.

Will click around and see if I can find something.

Your best idea is to uninstall the program and reinstall.
Most of the time that will solve the problem.

Sorry about the reply. But I can't go to Art Canvas without a design in it. Will have to work on the problem. But I can go there if I have a design so I don't think it's a problem for me since I can still use the function.

I think you might be confusing a design page to a design. Yes, you have to have a page open or a new "design" page to access the Art Canvas, but you don't need a design in the blank page.
If a page is open on the embroidery canvas, then you should be able to toggle back and forth between pages.
Is that at all clear?

No, I know the difference. It has to have a design opened to go the Art Canvas. That's the only thing that I can't do as far as I know. I've had Designer 6 for about a year now. I've tried most of the things. Didn't know it was just my software or I wouldn't have mentioned it. Sorry for the confusion.

FWIW, I just now checked my software and Art canvas opens without a design already being opened.

Do you have all the Service Pack update to the software?

It may be a difference in computers, but the tab names (Art Canvas, Embr. Canvas, Hoop Layout) on my screen are black letters.

I know you are referring to the original writer but mine are in a blue gray also.
