Settings Screens Recap -- From the Manual

Now that we’ve run through the basic (very basic…details for each setting to be covered later in the manual), here is a quick recap of where to find what.

Sewing settings are on setting screens 1-3

Essentially, from the setting screens, screens one, two, and three are where you will find details on how to set your sewing settings. So screen one covers presser foot height, pressure, and stitch width.  Screen two covers needle position, type of stitch, and multi-function foot controller.  Screen three covers more presser foot functions, automatic functions, and reinforcement priority for stitching.

General settings are on screens 4-6

Now, if you any questions about general machine settings, screens four, five, and six will direct you to the page you need in the manual for specifics. But for a recap, screen four is for needle position when machine has stopped, machine volume, brightness of display, and light over the needle/sewing area, and bobbin/thread sensor options.  Screen five is display settings: machine shut off, screen savers, spool stand, calibration.  Screen six is purely functional.  How many stitches you've sewn, internal machine number for your machine and embroidery unit, and which program version is currently on your machine. 

Embroidery settings are screens 7-9

And finally, embroidery unit settings are on screens seven, eight, and nine. On screen seven you select embroidery frames, thread color display, speed during embroidery, tension, and foot height.  Screen eight is for display functions during embroidery.  Inches vs. mm.  Background color, stitch width, brightness.  Screen nine utilizes the machine camera function, which I am stupid excited to learn about.  I may even try un-hooping a design mid-stitch just to see if I can get it back using the camera function.  Maybe.  I might not be that brave. The embroidery settings I have had to defer pretty much to later.  I have used the machine for embroidery, but every single option said "See page..." for instructions, and so I am deferring true expertise until I get to the individual pages referenced

And those, in a nutshell, are the settings screens for the Baby Lock Destiny 2 machine.  Which sews like a dream but is still intimidating.  I'm scared to yell at it.  You know, when something doesn't go as planned.  Ok, maybe that's just something I do.
