Chenille Shortcut filters are provided to avoid small stitches and sharp changes in stitch direction during Chenille stitch generation. These filters operate only on Chenille stitch types and have no effect on lockstitch stitch types.
Note : Non-EMB embroidery format Chenille designs can be shortcut-checked when opened into Wilcom ES Chenille by clearing the Outlines/Objects checkbox.
