From BriTon Leap, Inc.:
Machine embroidery design merging, sizing with stitch recalculation, colorizing, lettering, monogramming, conversion, printing and more.
Create scenes where designs overlap and automatically remove the hidden stitching.
Convert between different embroidery formats.
Print templates for design placement.
Add Monograms, multi-line text, circular lettering and even spiral lettering using 12 built-in fonts.
Support for applique including simulated fabric preview, removing underlap in stacked applique, printing applique outlines and cutter file export.
Expanded file Fonts (stitch files used as fonts) supplied in .BX format (many vendors on the web) can be used.
All the essential tasks used by every embroiderer everywhere. It is not a digitizer, however.
