Janome Embroidery Machine Format 

*.Jan is the "Master Data" file created in Digitizer MBX V4.5 and all of its previous versions. 

Made up of:

  • Object data
  • Thread color
  • Fill pattern
  • Density
  • Dimensions

*Emb is the "Master Data" file created in Digitizer MBX V5 and onward.

Made up of:

  • Object data
  • Thread color
  • Fill pattern
  • Density
  • Dimensions

*.Jef is a "Stitch Data" file and is the default format for all Janome/Elna embroidery machines.

Made up of:

  • Machine readable files
  • Coordinates to move the hoop
  • Instruction for every stitch in the design

*.Jef+ is an editable "Stitch Data" file created in the machine or Horizon Link/Suite.

Made up of:

  • Recognition of hoops that are bigger than earlier generations of Janome embroidery machines.
  • Made up of more than one .jef file created in the edit function of the machine 500E, MC9900, MC11000, HMC12000, HMC15000 and MB4 or Horizon Link/Suite. This means that each of the *.jef's that were brought into the edit screen be moved, rotated, resized, etc. at any time. (Previous generations permanently grouped all designs when edit was OK'd. All designs became a *.jef and could no longer be edited individually.)
  • Designs sent from the machine or Horizon Link/Suite to computer/USB are .jef+.

*.Jpx has exclusive information that the current generation of Janome machines may need for special functions i.e. Cutwork, AcuFil and graphics.

  • You will need Digitizer MBX V4 and upwards to create a .Jpx file. Digitizer automatically writes .jpx when writing to the USB or directly to the HMC15K, HMC12K, MC9900, MC500E. 
  • AcuFil automatically writes to the USB as *.alf.
  • .Jpx contains both the stitch data and a background image together (.jpeg). This allows the HMC12000 and HMC15000 to display a .jpeg on the screen (this can be an image of your fabric) while positioning the design for improved positioning accuracy.
