Avoid corners with an angle smaller than 60o it can cause a machine fault or loop stitches may be changed to chain stitches. ES Designer automatically adds an extra stitch to avoid sharp corners within objects, including manual stitch objects. If you round off sharp corners in run and complex fills, you can avoid both sharp angles and small stitches.

However sometimes an extra stitch causes chain stitches to swell, giving a poor finish.

Use Smart Corners to achieve smooth, even placement of stitches, and eliminate gaps in your design. Smart Corners can be used with Straight stitch and Coil for Input C objects. See Smart Corners in the Wilcom ES User Manual for details.
