If you find that the first colour of a design is missing when stitching the design on a Barudan machine, it is because your Barudan machine requires a colour change function code at the beginning of the design stitch data. The following procedure is needed to add a colour change function code at the beginning of the design stitch data automatically, thus avoiding such issue.
This solution works when the Machine Format setting is the Barudan related Machine Format, such as, “Barudan Z Series” or “Barudan”, etc..
1) Go to Design > Machine Format Settings… menu
2) In the Standard tab, tick the checkbox for “First CC required”
3) Click on the OK button
Note: a colour change function code will now always be added at the beginning of the design stitch data in the Barudan related Machine Format.
