Plug-in for Embird
works together with Microsoft® Windows® Explorer, the application which is
present in every installation of Windows 95 and above and with other
Windows programs. The principle of Iconizer plug-in is simple: normally,
when you run Explorer and you are not using the Iconizer plug-in, each
design file is represented by an universal "type" icon.
Registered Iconizer plug-in will show a small icon of the embroidery design
instead. This allows you to browse and sort your designs easily, because
you can see the contents of embroidery files (Fig. 1) while using all the
great features of Microsoft® Windows® Explorer and other Windows programs.
Iconizer plug-in supports only those embroidery formats that are supported
in Embird software.
