What’s new in Version 14
A gorgeous combination of brains and beauty,Version 14 has plenty of compelling reasons for you to update. It is powerful, elegant and easy to use, and has great new features that help you maximize efficiency with minimal effort.
Version 14 is Windows 7 Certified and Optimized!
The only software to get the Microsoft Windows 7 certification, an endorsement that Pulse gets for every version, it offers peace of mind to the user that their software works perfectly in the Windows environment.
As a Version 14 user using Windows 7, you will be able to take advantage of special improvements found in Microsoft’s Windows 7 operating system such as Thumbnails Preview and Folder Libraries that allow you to quickly access embroidery designs and artwork stored across multiple folders.
Productivity is the winning feature
Version 14 offers Multiple Core Processing, which means increased productivity and faster stitch generation.
Computers are not getting faster, they are adding more processor cores. Version 14 takes advantage of Multiple Cores, so multiple calculations can be done at the same time on many processors. On a design with over 20,000 stitches, there is a 33% improvement in the time of stitch generation using 2 cores vs. a single core and a 43% improvement in the time of stitch generation from previous versions*. Version 14 will give you more time to focus on your business.
*based on internal testing results using version 12. More testing being done by independent sources and results will be available soon.
Modern User Defined Interface, Customizable workspaces
The user interface has been completely re-written from the ground up using the latest technology available.
