As a high-quality and full-fledged embroidery software specially made for people who embroider at home, Sewwhat-Pro’s editing capabilities enable you to rotate and resize patterns (at a constant stitch density), merge multiple patterns, and save changes to a variety of file formats that suit your embroidery needs. In addition, it also includes a variety of Integrated Project Management features, provides cutting tools for splitting patterns into individual sections, supports for converting from one embroidery format to another, and allows batch conversion between different formats of a large number of embroidered files.

SewWhat-Pro has all the necessary functions and provides a wide range of practical and efficient tools for you to open and edit a lot of different embroidery file formats. For example, change the color of a single thread and the fabric of background, view or hide jumps, grid lines and labels, order the threads, delete or join them, filter stitches and split patterns, plan how certain stitches will be performed, specify the name of your work, sizes, number of stitches, sequence of colors, and more.

Plus, it also comes with a stitch distribution graph that lets you see the concentration of the design in a length per number ratio.
