Troubleshooting and FAQ
If you don’t find an answer to your question below, please feel free to email me at LoriMillerDesignsHELP at Gmail.com.
When I click on the block library file (*.blk), I get an error message or it looks for a program to open it. What is wrong?
The block library file (*.blk) is a data file and will not open anything if you double click it. The error message is valid. You need to copy and paste the file DIRECTLY under the MY EQ8 > User Favorites folder. Once it is in place, you can open EQ8 and look for it in your block library under MY FAVORITE BLOCKS.
My *.blk file is in a folder under MY EQ8 > User Favorites and I can’t see any blocks. What is wrong?
The *.blk file must be DIRECTLY in the User Favorites folder for EQ8 to be able to read it. It cannot be in any other folder.
I purchased the 216 block EQ8 block library file, how do I know which Qube shapes to use for the blocks?
You can find the Qube shapes required for each block in the Accuquilt GO! Qube Brochure. Since this was already available, I did not recreate it. You can find an online copy of the brochure at Accuquilt with THIS LINK
I have more than one size of Accuquilt GO! Qube, do I need to purchase all of the sizes?
It is not necessary to purchase more than one size of Qube because you can change the block size in the EQ8 software and it will scale properly as long as you match the block size to the Qube size. You can certainly purchase them if you like but it is not necessary.
I have a MAC, where do I place my blk file?
- Navigate on your computer to your My EQ8 > User Favorites You will find this directory by clicking GO > Home on the top menu. Please note: The My EQ8 folder gets created in the HOME folder on MACs during installation. (In the past, the My EQ8 folder was created in the documents folder, you may still find remnants or a My EQ8 folder there, DO NOT use that one.)
