Your list of suggestions is likely the same as what they already have... You are most welcome to start a thread on here. Recently someone started one posting their wish list for ideas/changes to the machines and a few others added to it. The forum is monitored often by APQS staff such as Dawn and Mark (They also add their comments to certain topics from time to time ) I have also learned that what I am trying to do is actually something that Quilt Path can do, but I am just going about it wrong. Yes, it is different than your old CQ and change is hard (especially for us older folks). I LOVE that Quilt Path can read my CQ patterns as it reads so many different formats which CQ and IQ cannot do!!
