Saving a Settings Screen Image to Media

Saving Screen Settings was not intuitively obvious.  The save icon is pretty universal with computers, but Baby Lock decided to create their own, which looks like this:

Because that TOTALLY looks like a save button

Baby Lock made it so that you can save whatever your settings are, which is good. My memory is used up enough trying to do my day job without remembering which presser foot setting I was using last. You can save up to 100 images on a USB media, all saved as a BMP file.

The first step is to insert your USB drive in to the USB port on the machine.

Press the button on top of the screen that looks like a piece of paper. This is the button that pulls you in to the settings screens.

Pick which screen you want to save, 1-9. Make whatever changes you want to make to the settings before pressing the save button, which remember, looks like this:

Once you hit the save button, you can plug your USB media in to your computer. The file automatically saves in a folder labeled “bPocket”

Open that folder up, and you will see a file named S00.BMP (or S01.bmp…whatever number file from 00 to 99 you are on in the save settings process).

And that’s it! I think the reason the save button does not look like a floppy disc is that it’s really more of a screen capture. Either way, if frees up my personal memory for something more important…like the knowledge that Opossum’s are marsupials.

How to save the screen settings to an external device. It's pretty straightforward, but not actually intuitively obvious. Most people are used to a computer save icon and Babylock created their own save icon. Once you know what it looks like, it is ridiculously easy.
