How do I make stitches less dense when sewing on points. For example, when I am sewing letters that have points (Ms, Ks, etc.), in the points, the stitching is so dense that it bulks up when sewing out. I also have this problem with shapes like stars. Are there tricks to the trade to "thin" out the stitching in these areas so they do no bulk up?
In your level of DS, when you go into Properties on a satin stitch column, do you have a "Corners" tab? If you do, you can use this to either miter or cap the corners in a letter or on any sharp point within a column anywhere. make all of your pull comp and/or column width adjustments prior to using the cornering tools.
The other way is to learn how to digitize the letters and create your own mitered or capped corners.
When dealing with True Type fonts, the computer softwear basicaly auto digitizes the letter(s) for you and the results often do not turn out for a satisfary sewout without a lot of editing.
Glad to here that your Bravo is behaving again... ;-))

In your level of DS do you have a box labeled "short stitches"? It will be in your object properties just below the density setting. If you do try turning that on, it moves some stitches in at corners and on the inside of arcs where stitches tend to get heavy.
