Hi Crafsters,
I have had my Brother PR-600II for a couple years now and I haven't done enough to say so. But this year I AM GOING TO!!

My digitizing soft wear is PE-Design ver. 7. My biggest problem right now is when I purchase a design & download it, all the colors go nuts. I can not figure out what to do to stop this.

Have any of you had this problem? Were you able to fix it. 

Once I figure this out, or just put it to rest, I want to start working with my designing software.  If anyone out there can help I sure would appreciate it.

All software programs have "default" color settings. Say Bernina V6 software defaults are that color change 1 is blue, color change 2 is red, and color change 3 is yellow. If I digitize something in Bernina V6 software and I don't change the colors, then a design with three colors will show up on the screen in those colors. The first embroidery "object" digitized will show as blue, the second as red, etc. If I like those colors, fine. But if they don't reflect what I want my design to look like, then I have to go in and change them.
All software programs are like this, but they all have a different set of colors as their default. Say PE 7's defaults are that color change one is orange, color change two is green, color change 3 is turquiose... If you open a design that was digitized in Bernina in your PE 7 software, PE7 will default to its own color palette and it will look wonky.
So if what ends up on your screen doesn't look the way you want, you can just go into PE7's color palette and change them to what you want.
