I am getting a lot of jump stitches crossing over my designs when I convert them from PXF to DST. The same issue happens when I receive a DST file from my clients. How do I stop this from happening whenever I use a DST file? My Jump Convert is set to 3 and A. I'm not sure exactly how this setting works, but would it help to set this to B? Attached are a PXF file and the DST file that was created from the PXF file.

I have the same problem converting from .pes to .dst. Drives me crazy having to put all the trims in. I would love it if there were a solution!

I just realized that my software was not set to "Open as stitch segments" when opening a DST file. The files are now stitching properly once I changed that setting. I hope this helps your issue, too!

Unfortunately that doesn't fix it. I wish it did.

so it sounds like you are exporting the DST using the Embroidery Disk/Write.
I typically do not use this and use Save As and change format to whatever i need it to be.

if you have a lot of jumps in the output, this is typically because you have satin stitches in the design that are wider than the machine type you are outputting excepts to run well. You can check this in your design and if you find them, try changing them to fill stitch types or narrow them to a more proper width for the satin stitch type.

I forgot to mention, this is usually caused by exceeding the max stitch length a machine uses. since satin stitches stitch from 1 side to the other, stitches can get too long when they are wide.

You can also turn on and play with the quality control settings which will break up the long stitches and prevent this. Using quality control can have adverse effects in the appearance of the designs since it places additional stitches in between the offending long stitches. In the case of a wide satin, this will leave a row of stitches in the middle of the satin changing how it appears to some extent, but solves the jumps issues.

There are quite a few options in the Quality Control setting that give you some control of how these extra stitch get added to split the long stitches. It will require some playing to determine what works best for you.

Looking at your images, I see Jumps are not what you really meant, you are referring to Trims between letters.
Sorry, i should have looked at those before I responded.

Are your letters digitized segments or text segments?

You probably already know that trims are turned on in different places for each of those.
Since you don't show the trims on you PXF I cannot tell if you have them on correctly.
if they are turned on correctly you should see the scissors on each letter in the pxf as shown in this image.
those should carry thru to your DST.
