I can't replace existing PES files

A lot of users were asking for write support of the PES file format used by Brother, Baby Lock, and Bernina.

Finally StitchBuddy is able to write PES files, but this feature is limited to PES v1.0. Later versions of PES contain more information (e. g. the used thread catalog), so overwriting a more sophisticated PES format with version 1.0 might cause data loss.

For this reason StitchBuddy only allows you to overwrite PES v1.0 files. Please use a different file name to save your changes if you've made modifications to a PES v2.0 design (or higher).
