3 - Choose "Janome GigaHoop - Horizontal" or "Janome GigaHoop -Vertical" option (Picture No. 2). Typical position is horizontal, with two overlapping hoops. The vertical position works the same way as the horizontal does, just the parts are automatically rotated by -90 degrees when loading from hard disk.

5 - Embird will ask you about the position in GigaHoop for every file being merged (opened).  If you are opening files which were prepared in Embird, you can deduce the position from the file name displayed in the blue bar at the top of the window. In this example, it is www_1.jef file and it should be placed into position 1 in GigaHoop. (Picture No. 4)
6 - Repeat step 5 for every part. You can select multiple files in "Merge Files" dialog box.

7 - Sometimes it may be necessary to change the order of objects. Drag and drop objects at Objects Order Bar, so that their order is correct. (Picture No. 5)
