21. BACKUP
The data created when pressing the backup button from the standard screen and performing the trial
sewing is backed up in the sewing machine.
The continuation can be edited by using the backup data when moving to the body input next time.
Overwriting is performed on the current pattern when performing backup or trial
sewing.
For this reason, when the pattern was selected from the media in the normal sewing
mode, or users' pattern was edited, the data will disappear.
It is necessary to select the pattern again in the normal sewing mode.
Also, the backup data is overwritten when the pattern was selected from the media
in the normal sewing mode or users' pattern was edited.
The backup data which is taken in at the time of moving to the body input becomes
the pattern data which is currently selected.
