Frequently Asked Questions

The Design Doodler is easy and fun to use for everyone, regardless of artistic ability. If you don’t feel comfortable “doodling” an image, you can always trace one! Design Doodler allows you to upload images to trace with just a few clicks. Imagine tracing a photograph you took during your last holiday get-together with family. Or maybe you want to trace out a picture your child or grandchild drew. All you have to do is snap a picture of what you want to trace, upload the image to Design Doodler, and you’re ready to start tracing! It really is that simple!

**Please note only the software, not the hardware (computer or Ipad) comes with the Design Doodler.

You’ll need a computer with a Windows Operating system. You can also use the iPad companion app to design on the go with any iPad generation that supports the Apple Pencil (although the apple pencil is not required to use the ap).

Ipad Recommended iPad System Requirements:

You will need internet access to email/share designs you create between the two devices. 

You can use Design Doodler on any computer that runs Windows. If you have a macbook or iMac, you would need to install and use Windows OS.
No, you don’t have to use an iPad. You can use a computer. Keep in mind, however, that Design Doodler will NOT work on non-iPad tablets.
That’s ok! You can create doodles with your computers mouse/cursor. Some people prefer the natural feeling of a tablet pencil or computer drawing pad, but you can certainly make beautiful designs with a normal mouse.
Yes! You can save your doodles/designs in the iPad app and access them on your computer. In fact, some people may prefer to open their design on their computer to add some finishing touches before sending it to their embroidery machine.

It’s easy! On your desktop version of the Design Doodler, you simply select the file format you’d like to export your design into. From there, load it on a USB and insert it into your machine as you would with any other embroidery design.

From the Ipad companion app, you’ll save your working files as .jds files. From there, you can share them via email, Skype, etc. Then you can open the .jds file on the desktop version and edit it or save it to any machine format you wish to load into your machine via USB or wireless connection based on how your machine can import embroidery files.

Almost every machine! The Design Doodler will export designs to work on virtually any embroidery machine & quilting imaginable, whether you have a single-needle or multi-needle machine.

As long as your embroidery machine runs one of the following file formats, our designs will work on your machine:

  • PES (Brother / Babylock / Bernina)
  • JEF (Janome)
  • & VP3. & VIP & SHV (Husqvarna / Viking)
  • XXX (Singer)
  • DST (Tajima / Most machine brands as an expanded file format)
  • EXP (Melco / Bravo / Most machine brands as an expanded file format)
  • SEW (Elna/Jamoe/Kenmore)
  • EMD (Elna)
  • PCS (Pfaff)
  • CSD (singer/Poem)

As long as your quilting machine runs on one of the following file formats, our designs will work on your machine:

  • CQP (Compuquilter)
  • DXF (Compatible with most computerized quilting systems)
  • HQF (Handi-Quilter Pro-Stitcher)
  • IQP (Itelliquilter)
  • PAT (Innova Auto Pilot / ABM Innova)
  • PLT ((4QB) –  QBot / QBOT HPGL Plotter Files)
  • SSD (Side Saddle System)
  • TXT (HQ Pro-Stitcher, PC Quilter)

All updates to the software are absolutely free! These include improvements to the software’s functionality, fixing any reported issues, etc.

Although a while away, given how new this software is, upgrades will be optional and likely be charged only if the newly added features justify it. This is because upgrades will include new tools/features, which of course, take a considerable amount of time and resources for our software engineers to put into place. Rest assured that if there is ever a paid upgrade, it will be worth it 🙂

Absolutely! Design Doodler is very intuitive. Your child or grandchild can doodle on your iPad or computer and then you can use the design for your next embroidery project. How amazing is that?

The Design Doodler is a quick and extremely easy way to doodle, sketch, and trace your way toward creating light, fun embroidery designs. It’s a powerful program that allows you to almost “draw” your designs into existence.

Although the Doodler will create quality designs because of the powerful engine we have automatically applying proper stitch settings in the background,
embroidery digitizing will always produce the best quality results. Digitizing is more technical, and is best to use when creating complex designs or anything that you plan to embroider for production.

We still love digitizing! And recommend that everyone at the very least take our Embroidery Digitizing 101 Course to help improve every aspect of your embroidery life. However, the design doodler is an easier way to turn your imagination into stitches by making simpler designs anytime, anywhere, at any age.

Ready. Set. Create.
