Thank you Rod

I was using TTF at about 1/2".  When I fixed the sizing and columns it
worked much better.

Thanks, Dave

Dave,
There could be several reasons for what you are describing.
 How small is the text? What fonts are we talking about? Are they
pre-digitized or are they true-type fonts and what kind of small objects
are you referring to?

Something that will help on ALL small columns, whether they are in
text(font) form or used in any design is to adjust your column width. In
Design Shop, select the entire design or just the elements you wish to
adjust, or the lettering if that is the case and click on "Properties"
and then select the "Column" tab. Close to the bottom of the display
window, you will see a "Minimum Column Width" selection window. The
default is normally shown at "5pts". This should NEVER be below "10pts".
Therefore when doing lettering or designs that have small columns, set
this to a "minimum" of 10 or higher. This selection process will not
affect columns that are already over "10pts", just the columns that are
less then that.=20

Sewing a column at a minimum width of 5pts, will give you something like
an actual column of about .039 which is less than 1/2 of 1/10th of an
inch wide and you are looking at nothing but fraying and thread breaking
and (@&$^&#%#%.....

Also, adding lock stitches to fonts or designs that already have lock
stitches digitized into them will cause knots to show, cause fraying and
thread breaks and frustration and headaches.....etc. To check
this,select the element(s), go to Properties, View, and at the bottom of
the selection list, click on "View lock stitches." Then go to the "
Stitches" tab" at the bottom of the project tree window, click on it and
look at the first stitch in the font or element. When "TI" is shown, it
means it has a "Tie-in". Scrolling down the list of stitches, when "TO"
is shown, that is a "Tie-off".
