    Known Issues

    (Have feedback?)

    Issue Workaround
    Infinity programmable HB buttons will not save. Unknown if this is machine or PS. Reprogram each time machine is turned on.
    Multi-Point Crop may not crop correctly on intricate areas. Delete and redraw area, or crop smaller areas at a time.
    Start/End does not appear after duplicate/ rotate on duplicated design. Delete duplicate and duplicate again.
    Help does not refresh when a new tab is selected. Close Help, then reopen in new tab.
    Tabs are white, not grayed out. No work around.
    Files do not open from File Explorer. Open PS first, then open design.
    All Auto Save Workspaces do not have image thumbnail. No work around.
    Opti-stitch is not changing on the fly all the time. Pause to change speed.
    Orange bullseye at current position does not draw correctly every time. No work around.
    After an update, Channel Lock does not work correctly every time. Reboot system.
    When going to free motion from Pro-Stitcher, cross hairs are not in the same place when disengaging and engaging gears. Reposition if needed.
    If you run an update after Tagging key words in Catalog to your designs, the designs in C:/Designs folder will be overwritten and you will lose your key words. Save files to a flash drive first, Update, then transfer designs back to Design folder. OR Save designs to another folder.
    Orange bullseye is not showing every time you pause. No workaround.
    Opti-Stitch will not always change speed while stitching, especially if you lower speed to 15 Speed or lower. Then try to increase speed. Pause, change speed, then Resume stitching.
    After installing PSPUpdate 0535 restart the longarm machine, Pro-Stitcher carriage, and Pro-Stitcher tablet. Failing to do this may result in a motor error when Quilt/Run is selected, channel locks not working correctly, and other issues. If you encounter any strange issues after the update is installed, like area buttons not working or a design not loading, a second reboot of your tablet clears strange issues you may experience. Reboot entire system.
    Crop having issues cropping on extreme multi-point areas. Baseline design before crop or redraw area.
    Cropped design skipping end tie offs in rare instances. Baseline design or Nudge design.
    Orange stitch out may appear different colors of orange. No workaround.
    Using Emergency stop may cause motor errors. Use Pause.
    Channel Locks are still not working perfectly after an update. Use channel lock with the lock in upper right corner to get the lock direction correct.
    When using Move, selecting the small stop sign will not unlock your motors. Only in this instance, use Emergency Stop to stop Move.
    Creating a new start point after a motor error or thread break, then selecting Run, button turns to pause and machine does not move. Reposition the start point back a few stitches will allow the machine to stitch.

    TABLET AND CARRIAGE CHARTS

    What is Beta software? 

    Beta software refers to computer software that has gone through our internal testing processes, but has not yet been tested in the real world, and therefore is not officially released as a final version. Releasing a Beta version allows Pro-Stitcher engineers to get bug fixes and new features into quilters hands sooner, and gives quilters the opportunity to provide feedback to our developers. Remember, you can always rollback to a previous version if you find you are having difficulties.

    NOTE: It is important to restart both your tablet and your machine after completing the update process or your Pro-Stitcher may not function properly.

    There is no Beta testing version at this time. Check back for more updates.

    Carriage Firmware V1.40 Release Notes:

    This release incorporates velocity and position move functions. Position function was done to improve returning the carriage to a starting point. Velocity function moves the carriage under PS Lite control at a controlled speed. NOTE: Carriage Firmware V1.40 MUST be installed with PS Lite: Version 22.02.0571

    Usage Tips

    • Frame Space must be created before machine will stitch the design.
    • Opti-Stitch (Acceleration and Speed) works best if both values are set close to each other. As an example, 50% Acceleration and 60% Speed works better than 20% Acceleration and 60% Speed. Experiment with Opti-Stitch to find what best works for you. Pro-Stitcher recommends starting at 50% Acceleration and 50% Speed and adjust up and down from there.
    • Design and crosshairs (needle) must be inside the Frame Space to stitch.
    • Make sure the screen on your Pro-Stitcher Lite tablet is set to the correct size, go to Settings (gear) tab/Display in the ribbon/ on the lower right side select the default button. Monitor should be set to 10” width and 5.67” height.
    • Letting the machine move to the Start point from a few inches away when selecting Run allows the Start point to be exact. Moving machine to Start and then selecting Run could result in design being shifted slightly.
    • Purple Crosshairs in in free motion (when gears are not engaged) are not needed in PS LITE and therefore are not visible.
    • Reboot tablet and carriage after every update.

    Known Issues

    Issue Workaround
    Move is disabled. Use channel locks if needed. Feature will be included in a future update.
    Small lurch of Moxie is possible when motors start to move. Select Run while machine is a few inches away from your Start and allow machine to move automatically. Improvements are being made and will be included in a future update.
    Occasionally, the motor lock icon in the upper right-hand corner will show locked when the motors are not locked. Tap the icon once or twice to reset the lock icon to the correct position.
    When stitching in Cruise Mode with Pro-Stitcher Lite, Moxie may take a few extra stitches in place at the end of a design. You can use Precision Mode.
    Help manual under the “Info” tab is disabled. Select the ? icon and then select the button in question. Help manual will be enabled in a future update.
    Adjusting Opti-Stitch Acceleration and Speed excessively while machine is running could cause machine to stitch off path. Pause the machine and adjust Opti-Stitch while the machine is stopped.

    • Make sure the screen on your Pro-Stitcher Lite tablet is set to the correct size, go to Settings (gear) tab/Display in the ribbon/ on the lower right side select the default button. Monitor should be set to 10” width and 5.67” height.
    • Letting the machine move to the Start point from a few inches away when selecting Run allows the Start point to be exact. Moving machine to Start and then selecting Run could result in design being shifted slightly.
    • Purple Crosshairs in in free motion (when gears are not engaged) are not needed in PS LITE and therefore are not visible.
    • Reboot tablet and carriage after every update.

    Known Issues

    (Have feedback?)

    Issue Workaround
    If Frame Space is only slightly larger than the design, there may be a “Design is outside frame space” message pop up when you advance to the next row. Make sure Frame Space is a few inches bigger than your design.
    Machine may lurch slightly when pausing No workaround needed
    Mark is not working when gears are not engaged (purple crosshairs). Use Mark with gears engaged (orange crosshairs).
    Small lurch of machine is possible when motors start to move. Select Run while machine is a few inches away from your Start and allow machine to move automatically. Improvements are being made and will be included in a future update.
    Occasionally, the motor lock icon in the upper right-hand corner will show locked when the motors are not locked. Tap the icon once or twice to reset the lock icon to the correct position (green, open lock).
    When stitching in Cruise Mode with Pro-Stitcher Lite, machine may take a few extra stitches in place at the end of a design. You can use Precision Mode.
    Adjusting Opti-Stitch Acceleration and Speed excessively while machine is running could cause machine to stitch off path. Pause the machine and adjust Opti-Stitch while the machine is stopped.
    Pro-Stitcher, in rare instances, will load your Run button in the middle of the tablet. Minimize the Pro-Stitcher screen on the tablet, then maximize. Run button will be in the correct place.
    In rare instances, when Tie Off is on, Pro-Stitcher may stop before performing end Tie Off Perform a manual Tie-Off.
    Carriage version is not in About information for 574. Roll back to version 571. If you are unsure of your version, then update to version 574. This will be added back in the next version.
