SewIconz is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you create icons for the embroidery files that are stored on your computer.
The tool is able to generate icons that display the stitching pattern, colors, and pattern size, and you can also get the information as tooltips by simply hovering the mouse cursor over the embroidery file.
It comes in handy for all users who have a lot of files containing embroidery data and need to easily distinguish between them.
You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup that allows you to carry out most operations with minimal effort. All of the dedicated parameters are gathered in a single interface, so it proves to be pretty easily to tweak most of the program’s functions.
SewIconz gives you the possibility to make file associations by selecting the file extensions from drop-down lists. It works with embroidery items (e.g. C2S, CLF, ART50, ART, DEM, DSB, EMB, JEG, KSM, STX), quilt files (e.g. CQP, HQF, PLT, QLI), as well as graphic items (e.g. BMP, CMX, GIF, JPG, SVG, EMF).
What’s more, there are several dedicated parameters bundled in this tool for helping you clear the icon cache, disable the icons, adjust the icon thumbnail size, select the measurement unit for popups that appear when dragging the mouse cursor over an icon (inches or meters), choose the background color, as well as set the color order for the file types.
Last but not least, you are allowed to tweak several features related to the Windows Explorer displaying criteria, such as always show icons and not thumbnails, show icons for items stored within ZIP archives, as well as reveal textures in the preview panel.
All in all, SewIconz comes packed with several handy parameters for helping you generate icons that show information about embroidery files, such as stitches, colors, and pattern size.
