How do I FLOAT to a specific stitch in a design in the standard control panel?
Load design as normal. You must have at least one stitch sewn in the design for the float command to work. If you have sewn at least one stitch go to #8, if not go to #4.
Turn all of the heads on the machine off by pressing the Head On/Off Switch on the Threadd Tension Unit.
Press the START button. Hesitate for approximately eight seconds then press the STOP button. This example took to stich 57. Turn all of the heads on the machine back on by pressing the Head On/Off Switch.
Press the STITCH INFO button.
For this example lets pretend we have a 4807-stitch design and we need to get to stitch number 1968.
Press the FLOAT button. Press the DOWN button, which will take the cursor to "2.1000 stitch". Press the SET button.
Press the START button. Since earlier in this exercise we established being at stitch 57, this step took up to stitch 1057. If during the course of pressing START to progress through the design you happened to go beyond to number of stitches you intended, press the STOP button to reserve the same amount of stitches. Watch the Stitch Info Screen for details.
In this example, our goal is to get to 1968 so we need to change the increments we increase by to 100.
Press the PREVIOUS button. The setting is currently "1.100 stitch" which is fine for this example. Press the SET button.
To get close to our goal press the START button nine times. This brings us up to stitch 1957 of 4807 as displayed on the Stitch Info Screen.
Press the PREVIOUS button twice. Turn all of the heads on the machine off by pressing the Head On/Off Switch on the Thread Tension Unit.
Hold down the START button until you get somewhat near 1968. Press the STOP button. If you are not quite up to 1968, press and release the START button until you reach that number.
Turn all of the heads on the machine on by pressing the Head On/Off Switch on the Thread Tension Unit.
