Downloading a new pattern and adding it to iQ

In this video Lauren demonstrates how to download a pattern and add it to your iQ. How a digital pattern downloads to your computer may be slightly different to Lauren's, but the steps of unzipping the pattern folder from the designer, finding the .iqp pattern and moving it into the patterns folder on your iQ thumb drive are relevant and necessary. 
Just a tip, once you have loaded a pattern, you can delete it from the thumb drive, but keep a copy on your home computer. It's also a good idea to immediately move the newly loaded pattern from the downloads catalog to another catalog. Lauren has a good video showing how to do that.

Library organisation

In this video, Lauren Jackson shows how to move patterns from the downloads catalog and create a new catalog. 
The contents of your quilt library and block library can be moved around in the same way.

Library archiving and organisation.

In this video, Lauren Jackson shows how the clean up library function works on the intelliquilter system. This will help you to clean up those duplicate or unwanted files you need. At the beginning of the video she shows how to archive your libraries.

LOGS - how to copy and send.

In this video, Lauren Jackson of Bold Notion Quilting covers how to easily send in your logs to Intelliquilter. This is done on installation day, by your installer if you have one, or by someone doing a self install. After that you may be asked to send in logs if you have issues you cannot solve on your own and need tech support.

Helen's IQ-3G. Navigating the libraries

This is an old video but nothing has changed since it was made in 2011. 
It shows the different ways to navigate through the pattern, block and quilt libraries and how to search for specific patterns. This method is the same for all libraries. If you are unable to see the video here, go to this link
