Sequencing Outline Segments
Using the Sequence View, you can alter the sequence of
segments in your designs. You can move them up, down, to the
beginning of the sewing order, or to the end. You can also use
this view to move a segment to the nearest layer (up or down) of
the same thread color.
The sequence of the segments is the order in which they are
embroidered. The sequence is important because you want
segments that are near to each other to sew one after the other.
This reduces jump stitches and the need to trim them later.
For example, you can have three objects, all of which start on
the left and end on the right. Object 3 is in between Object 1
and Object 2. This might not be optimal for jump stitches, and
the machine will take longer to embroider the design in this
sequence, compared to if the segments were properly
To sequence segments:
1 Select one or more segments you want to resequence.
2 Do any of the following:
In the design workspace or Sequence View area, click
and drag the segment(s) to the location you want.
In the design workspace, right-click the segment(s) and
choose Move–First, Move–Last, Move–Up, Move–Down,
Move–Prev Match or Move–Next Match.
In the Sequence View area, right-click the segment(s) in
the list and choose Move–First, Move–Last, Move–Up,
Move–Down, Move–Prev Match or Move–Next Match.
The Move—Prev Match and Move—Next Match commands
automatically move segment(s) to the previous or next
segment group that has the same thread color.

Matching Color Group."
