Q: I receive an "Invalid File" or "corrupt file" error when I try to download a design, How do i get it to download?
A. There is an interference with your Internet Browser and the download, the easiest fix is to switch to a different Internet Browser like Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or FireFox and download the design there. It was suggested to me that the internet browser may need to be updated and clear out the cache and cookies, that should solve the error from occuring in the future. But just keep in mind it is not a design file flaw, it is an internal error from the internet browser not allowing the proper download.
Q: I purchased $10 or more and I didn't receive my free alpha.. How do I get it?
A. Your free alpha is located in 2 places,
(1) in the return download page immediately after purchase,
(2) in the email sent to you immediately after purchase
If the email is not in your inbox, it probably went to your spam/junk folder, check there. It comes from the address "info @ hookedonapplique.com". If you still don't see it, send me a message and I will gladly forward it to you :)
To prevent that email from going to your spam folder, add my email address info @hookedonapplique.com to your email contacts to ensure it goes to your inbox :)
Q. I have a 4X4 .pes file that won't open on my machine, what is the problem?
A. Most likely your hoop isn't a true 4 inches and the design is too large. Find out what the "actual" embroidery area is for your hoop and resize your design to fit. Generally it is just a matter of a few millimeters. If you do not have software to re-size, you can download the FREE software "Wilcom Truesizer" found on Wilcom's website http://www.wilcom.com/en-us/products/truesizerproducts.aspx

Q. I am in the "Customer Download Area" section of the site, how do I know what my username/password are?
A. When you make a purchase, located in your downloads email, at the bottom , you will find your username and password.
