    OK, I'm officially frustrated. Yes the same exact thing happened.

    I have a back up computer that I pulled out thinking it could be a glitch in the software when I wiped and reloaded the laptop. I fired it up, loaded my design, traced it and it did exactly the same thing.

    I am going tomorrow to meet with a group and take orders for many items including the large shirt backs. I would feel much more confident if I could get this thing to work for my demo shirt.

    I am open to any suggestions at this time. what makes me really frustrated is the fact that it works fine on my 5 and 8 inch hoops as well as my 4x5 and 4x11 fast frame. so it "sees" the correct boundaries for the smaller frames.

    looking at the hoop drop down box I see both rect-w(17.25x11.75 in.) and rect-p(17.25x11.75 in.) I never paid attention to this and have now tried both. same result

    What if you used the full sew field frame instead. As long as you trace to make sure you are ok, it doesnít matter - whatever it takes to get the job done.

    I try it tomorrow and let you know. I didn't think about that. I did go in and create a custom frame using the offset to "allow" for the distance the carriage moves. No luck with that either

    The Amaya "Full Sewing Field" is 16" x 15.6"
    I would be willing to bet your design is larger.
    If you like I will take a look at it and see if it is the
    design.
    my email is below send it and I would be happy to take a look.
    Your machine is NOT a bravo correct?

    Many years ago, I had a design that fit inside the hoop when I looked. I pressed trace, and got a "design too large" reading. It took me hours to find one point...one stupid little stitch...way outside of the boundaries. That's the only thing I can think of. One wrong click of a mouse and it's size Armageddon.

    Update

    YEA it's fixed. Jerome found an almost invisible design outside the sew field. He deleted it and WALLA it works!!! Thanks to all the help you have given me. I have learned from this experience.

    Good guesses comes from experience, most of which comes from bad experiences.....
