    Default Tablets and downloading

    Hello

    I wonder if anyone else has the same problem as I do regarding downloading to my tablet.

    I use both jef and pes designs but when I try to download either of them to my Samsung tablet I get gobbledygook stuff. I'm able to download art designs and I think it's because it's the first in the line if you like.

    Would appreciate to hear from anyone who has experience the same problem and if they found a solution.

    Regards, Agatha

    Hekllo Agayh,

    I have a Samsung tablet and have just tried to download a file. I had to send the file to myself as an email and make sure I downlaoded the colour cchart as a PDF and opened it in Firefox..it was not an easy learning curve.

    I sent the email file zipped now I have to try and open it. Now I am getting the message 'Cannot open the file. Well this is not successful at all. i am sorry I don't know the answer to this.

    Thank you Phillipa for your response!

    I did a Google search and, in the small response on this topic, it seems that this problem is resolved by the computer technicians of the site. I'm sure in good time, as android tablet usage increases, this problem will be dealt with. In the meantime we can convert the art designs to that of our embroidery machine!

    I am having the same problem dld'g to my Samsung gallaxy. All I get when I click on my format is a looong page of computer jibberish. Haven't had a problem except on designs that are html file types. Will now try .art format as someone above says. Hope this can be resolved.

    HTML is a computer language. It is NOT a machine embroidery file.

    I use a iPad. I can now download and view embroidery designs using airstitch. It is free. I do not know if it works on any other tablets.

    Sadly no-one has developed an app for the Android tablets, so ladies those of us with androids are still left not being able to use our tablets too download designs.

    I have the Microsoft Surface Pro and can download all formats but I think it is a combo tablet and pc. I haven't put an iconizer program on it yet to be able to see actual embroidery files, but I still download then put my files on a flash drive and unleash them on my laptop.

    Yep, the Surface Pro is a computer. It is good buy if you are upgrading your computer; you also have the convenience of a tablet.

    I have an ipad mini, but had difficulties in downloading files. My solution was to install DropBox on my ipad and on my desktop. I no longer have any trouble downloading or moving files of any type. There should also be an Android version of Dropbox, or something comparable.

    I have been able to download Dropbox to my tablet, so thanks to Deb we have a workaround.
