Either way will bring up the Send Designs dialog box.

There are four possible options when using the Send Designs dialog box. The options allow you to choose both where you want your design to go and how you want to open it.

The Name Function 
If you've saved your design prior to sending it to the Memory Craft 10000, your design will be sent to the sewing machine or the ATA PC Card in the sewing machine by the name you gave it when you saved it. If you have not saved your design, the design will be sent by the name of the bitmap or clipart that was used to create the design.

However, you can change the name of the design by clicking the Name button on the Send Designs dialog box. The Jef Name dialog box will appear. You can type in a new name for the design.

You will bring up the Select Designs dialog box. Here you select the designs you want to send to the Memory Craft 10000 and add them to a list. The list details the directory, location, and filename of each design you want to send.

You create the list by selecting a design from a folder and clicking it. It will highlight and preview in the preview window. Click the Add button to add it to the list. If you've added a design incorrectly, you can click the Clear button to remove it from the list.

When you have chosen the location where you want to send designs, click the Send button. The Send Designs dialog box will appear, preset for your choice. Click the Start button to begin transferring designs.

There is one additional optional design source that you can use in this dialog box, PC Design Card. This option will allow you to receive designs directly from any PC Design Card inserted into the machine.

Once you have chosen where your designs are resident, you then need to choose the designs you wish to receive. Click a check mark next to specific designs, or click the Select All Designs button to receive all designs.

You can delete designs from the memories of the Memory Craft 10000 or the folders of an ATA PC Card inserted into the machine. Deleting designs will free up space, especially in the memories of the Memory Craft 10000, which can become too full with designs to accept any more.

The Memory Craft 10000 must be on and in PC Link mode. The USB or RS232C cable must be connected to the Memory Craft 10000 and the computer.
