PE-Design® NEXT software takes digitizing and embroidery to the next level of creativity with exceptional new and enhanced features.

A user-friendly graphical interface, similar to many software programs on the market today, makes it easy to locate and select the dynamic functions of this software.

In addition, the quick access toolbar allows you to customize your favorite operations so they are only a quick click away.

Several “Start Your Own Business” functions have been added, such as the new PE-Design® NEXT Link Function that allows up to four PR-1000 and upgraded PR-650 machines to be linked from a single computer with queue functionality. This is perfect for the small business owner who wants the ability to queue up to 100 designs at one time.

Other time savers are the lettering and design template feature, which provide the ability to create perfectly sized logos with lettering and designs, and the new Name Drop Template Feature that can be used to create different names with the same design and layout.

icon Click HERE for PE Design Next Trial Version in English and 7 Languages This is a trial version of PE-DESIGN NEXT which allows you to try PE-DESIGN NEXT (Personal Embroidery Design Software System) with limited functions. Brother is not responsible for damage to or loss of any equipment, media, programs or data related to the use of this trial version. If a product version of PE-DESIGN NEXT has already been installed on your PC, do not install this trial version. If you purchase a product version of PE-DESIGN NEXT and install it after using this trial version, be sure to uninstall this trial version by using "Control Panel" - "Add/Remove programs". In order to install the software on Windows® Operating System, you must log on to the computer using an account with administrator privileges.

In PE-DESIGN® NEXT if you turn off the Sewing Order, Sewing Attributes, Text Attributes, Color Tab, or the Stitch Simulator, click on the View Tab at the top of the window. All the component windows on the screen can be turned on and off from the View Tab. If you hide a window (menu such as Sewing Order), there will be a tab on the side of the screen. When the cursor is placed over that tab, the window will reappear. To pin the window onto the screen, click on the Tumb tack at the right side of the window. This will turn the thumb tack down which indicates the window is pinned in place instead of hidden. Cindy Hogan,

Did you know that in PE-DESIGN® NEXT, you have the ability to customize keyboard shortcuts? For this example, lets create a keyboard shortcut for turning on and off the Grid function.

1. Click on the Down arrow next to the Quick Access toolbar and then choose More Commands.

2. At the bottom of the Commands window, click on the Customize Keyboard shortcuts button.

3. In the Categories window, select View.

4. In the Commands window, select Show Grid.

5. Click inside the Press new shortcut key box, and then Press the Alt key and the G key on the keyboard. If the shortcut has not been assigned to anything else, it will say Unassigned. If it is an existing shortcut, you will need to select a different keystroke combination. In PE-DESIGN lettering, you do not have to add a keystroke with a letter. The letter may be assigned by itself. However, to make both programs the same, use the same shortcut combination

6. Press the Assign button.
7. You may now click Close and OK in where appropriate.

Would a larger computer moniter up to 27" keep icons from overlapping? Betsy Boop
Hi Besty,

I don’t know if a larger screen will help you or not. I use a 14 inch laptop monitor and do not have any issues. Have you accidentally undocked your items from their locations? I always leave mine docked that way they don’t sit on top of any items and I can get to them easily. If you have updated to the most current version of the software (9.22), you can go to the File pull down menu and choose Options. Click on the Application Color tab on the left side and then choose Reset Pane Position. Once you do that, click OK. Close the software and reopen it, the items will be re-docked in their original location. Alternately, there is a lesson my workbook that shows you exactly how to re-dock the items as well as a video tutorial on the CD.

If you like things large, then you may like a larger monitor. I have found that when increasing the size of my monitor, my display just stretches to fill that screen. You will have to play with the resolution of the display to see if that helps. You can try this on your computer monitor that you have now. Click on the Control Panel from the start menu, choose Appearance and Personalization and then choose Adjust the Screen Resolution. It may be that you have the resolution set too high or you have adjusted the Text and icons to make them larger to make them easier to see and therefore have less monitor space to work with.
