The embroidery library is a 'virtual library' in that any designs on your system can be located and displayed within the navigation tree. The design software doesn't care where they physically reside on your hard disk or external storage devices.
Use Manage Designs > Manage Embroidery Library Locations to add or remove existing folders from the Embroidery Library, enabling fast searching and filtering.
Add folders to the library
When you add or remove folders from the navigation tree, this only affects the embroidery library. It does not affect the folder structure on your hard drive or network. To add design folders to your library, use the Manage Embroidery Library Locations function to locate folders containing designs.
Use the Remove button to remove a folder from the Design Library. All subordinate folders will disappear from the navigation tree. The same functionality is also available via popup menu.
