> Does it make anything "work" better?
I found that my machine "tracked" better on the large stitches afterward. At the time I had mine installed it was only 4 days old and I was doing a demo in Sacramento. So it all was new to me then and I just keep remembering saying , "oooh!" quite a bit! As far as the zodiac goes.....how often do you use it? I do know that some have the "lost stitches" on a floppy that can be taken in thru the software and written to a blank key. I do not have them but keep hoping someone will email me them. "Hint"
As for the changes on the update they are as follows:
Yes, when I look at all this........I definitely say it is worth it!
I must admit I do miss 2 of the large stitches from the H-Menu, but I also understand they are among the "lost stitches'. If anyone has this floppy and wishes to email it to me I would be forever grateful. I am not big on the Zodiac (don't ask my sign, please <G> God made me the way He wanted to, sign or no sign) but there were a few, like the people holding hands, I did like or other uses. But those 2 scrolly designs I loved done in metallic on vevet and I do miss.
I think this is the main part of it..........someone add more it you can remember. I have grown so used to using the version 3 that it is just second nature to me now.
