  1. Hi Brenden,
    Do you know why this is not showing up when you inside of the software as an update nor does it show on the update page, only here. Is it just a delay since so new?


      1. Hi,

        Just installed e4. Do I need to manually install of the updates one by one since e4.1 or can I just install update 4 and it will cover all other updates since e4 was launched?


  2. Hey Brenden. How do I get the update from my office computer to the dongle on my embroidery machine computer (which is not on the internet) ?
    We moved a year ago. Make sure you call me & I’ll shout you dinner in the city if you’re up in Brisbane.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Hope you have been well! And I certainly will give you a shout when I’m up Brisbane way.

      The update is around 740MB so you should be able to copy it onto a USB stick and load it on the non-computer connected PC.

      Talk soon.

  4. Hi There, i have previously worked in NZ on e3 with all functions, how come now that i am now in Australia working for a start up company, they previously had the Lettering version of e4 & recently we have upgraded to the full e4 designing package, How come that we now have to buy accordion & User defined split as an extra add on? i think this is ridiculous & feel that we have been robbed

    1. Hi Ethan. Thanks for sharing your comments and thoughts.

      The change was driven from user feedback who said they want certain high-end features, but not all. Previously if you wanted Accordion, for example, you had to buy the top-end level for $12,000 or more depending on the region, even though you didn’t want all and won’t use all the top-end creative features. It was an all or nothing option. Now you can buy the top-end digitizing level for less than half of that, and only pay for the value-add elements you really need. i.e. Just the Shading and Open Fills element for $399 to get those capabilities.

      This allows a user to choose only the features they need and ultimately makes the software much more affordable.

      I hope this explains why this change was made.

  5. Hi Brendan, what are the chances that you can bring in the different patterns you get on Hatch for the Tatami stitching? That is such a stunning feature and really makes decorative fillings so easy and beautiful!

    1. Thanks for the comments Yolandi. I agree that bringing in some of the automated features into ES would make sense. I’ll add it to our list 🙂

  6. I currently have Deco Studio e2 software. It will no longer open on my Windows version 7 computer. I have purchased a new computer with windows 10. How do I upgrade my software to the newest version of Deco Studio software when my e2 dongle isn’t working anymore on my old computer and it isn’t going to work on my Windows 10 computer. Do I need a patch to download my old dongle to my new computer? And which new software would you recommend I purchase?.
