When we mention ESA Glyphs, think of ancient Egyptian “hieroglyphics,” something that is a shape or symbol. Our ESA Glyph packs load directly into your Wilcom E series or Hatch embroidery software like an ESA font does. The only difference is when you use them, a shape or symbol appears instead of a letter. ESA Glyphs allow you to easily create shapes & objects for your embroidery projects with the click of a button. Here’s how to use your ESA Glyphs:
Step 1: Select the “Lettering” tool under the “Lettering / Monogramming” drop-down menu. From here, select your ESA Glyph font in the drop-down bar.
Step 2: Select your ESA Glyph. All of our Glyphs begin with the letters Zz_ so that they appear at the bottom of your ESA font list.
Step 3 (Important): Before generating the ESA Glyph, you MUST change the default height from 10mm to 100mm or ELSE HATCH WILL CRASH.
Step 4: Click on the “Insert Character” button. A new window will appear inside of Hatch, displaying the ESA Glyphs within this pack.
Step 5: Click on the ESA Glyph you’d like to use and then click “OK”. Congratulations, you’re ESA Glyph will now appear on screen!
ESA Glyph Tip 1: Set your “Grid” tool to 1mm squares so you can see if any of the details are too small.
ESA Glyph Tip 2: Set “Underlay Type” to best suit the size of your Glyph.
