EQ7 Tutorial Tuesday- printing tips

beaquiltersEQ7tutorialtuesday

Last week I emailed EQ about some quilting tips and I thought I would share them here.

I wanted to print out templates for a quilt.

Here’s a tumbler quilt I made a while ago.

When you click on a block and click to print template you usually get the preview of the block in the corner

and here it’s not named so it’s kind of annoying, right?

image

EASY fix!!

when you are have the block selected and click print and the little box opens up like this

image

You see the part that says PRINT KEY BLOCK near the bottom left!

AHA!!

click NONE!

image

and VOILA!

only the template prints!

image

Now another “annoying” thing, that’s really minor, but I didn’t want it.

was the text at the bottom of a page when you print from EQ.

image

There’s a “fix” for that too, but it’s kind of “tricky”

in the print box as before click the FONT button.

image

and you get the font BOX pop up, usually everything is set to Arial font

image

open up the “choose font for” and select “footer”

then select a font you HATE… I selected a wingding font I had downloaded a while ago.

then click OK

NOW close EQ and open windows explorer and find your FONTS folder or search for it.

Mine was C: windows/fonts I think.

then find that font name and DELETE it!

Go back into EQ7 and if you look under the footer part again it’s blank like this!

image

I thought that was GENIUS!!

Thanks EQ Tech support Winking smile - you know who you are…

TRY it!

Great tips Bea! I'll have to try the one for the footer. Do you only have to delete the font one time???
