The current version (v 2.2.0) does not have global settings.

The preferences are found in Extensions > Ink/Stitch > Preferences.

You can either set global values which will be applied to every new svg document. Also you can set document specific values.

Output Settings

  • Minimum jump stitch length (mm): Jump stitches smaller than this will be treated as normal stitches (no lock stitches).
  • Minimum stitch length (mm): Stitches smaller than this value will be dropped (exception: lock stitches).

  • Global only: Cache size (mb) defines how much space on your harddrive can be occupied with cached stitch plans. The higher the value the more stitch plans can be cached. A cached stitch plan doesn’t need to be rendered again which will speed up rendering time significantly. Defaults to 100.

W6 machine owners: Set your global minimum stitch length value at least to 0.3 mm, otherwise your stitch out may have missing stitches where you wouldn’t expect them.
