REMINDER: HAVE YOU APPLIED FOR THE FREE TRIAL CODE FOR THIS SOFTWARE YET? The clock is ticking so head over to http://www.janome.ca to apply NOW before the opportunity is missed! Applications close 2 days from today on 15th October and the free trial period expires on 31st October.
And here is the next post offering good information about using features in the Artistic Digitizer software.
In the world of typography and fonts, you will sometimes find a font called a ‘dingbat’ font. What is a dingbat? (No, it’s not the crazy person at your family reunion…) Dingbats are non-typographic elements that can enhance your work by adding variety and functionality. There are lots of free dingbat fonts that you can use for free!
To find them, click Tools -> Insert Symbol
When the dropdown window opens use the Font drop down arrows to find your dingbat font and select it. The entire group of dingbat designs will show in the window. Select the one you want >insert then click and drag to get the shape!
The other reason this feature is so helpful is if you need to embroider text from another language. Many of the fonts have additional letters with accents on them so that translation can be accurate.
Below are just a sampling of what our educators have created using the Symbols feature? Have you tried it? Let us know in the comments!
Until next time,
