As of this morning, there are no updates for CS 6.0

If your controller is a Mod 3, CS 4.2 was the last version to support Mod 3 controllers. 

If you're running on a Windows 7 or Windows 8 computer and have a newer controller, you should be able to go from CS 4.2 to CS 6.0 without an issue.  You will need to check your firmware first though.  If it is out of date, you will need to order a firmware update kit.

I use CS in SAM on a laptop running Windows 8, and CS does support the touch screen.  I believe that touch screen capability has been available since CS 5.0.

Introduce Yourself / Re: Fonts for Creative Studio

I am not aware of any free fonts that will stitch out continuously. 

There are tools within CS (Nodes, Order Join, Draw Sewable Lines/Arcs/Curves) that you may be able to use to modify some of those fonts once you've placed your word or phrases using the Text tool.

It doesn't sound like a rocking finger issue to me.  Are these the tie-off stitches you're talking about?

You need to adjust the spacing distance with the screws that hold the magnet bracket not the screws with the springs. 

(If your machine is a Plus model, you can find instructions on pages 9-5 and 9-6 of the manual.)

Although I don't own this software or have any experience using it, I know that several Statler owners do:

When the light is on (channel lock engaged), try pushing on the channel lock itself.  Does it engage with a little pressure on it?  If so, you'll need to adjust the distance between the magnet and the table or cross-track.  The spacing we start off with is the thickness of three business cards.

If pushing down on the magnet with the reduced spacing doesn't allow it to engage, you'll need to check the connections.

Sounds like it may be your Power Assist.  You can turn it off or calibrate it.  Both of these options can be found under the "Tools" menu.

Take a piece of thread and floss it through the eye of the needle and see if it shreds or breaks.  (Some time ago, I had a package of needles that had burrs in the eyes of each of them.)

Carefully check the entire thread path, guides, etc. for any rough spots or burrs.

When your thread breaks, what does the end of the thread look like?  Is it frayed/shredded?  Is it curled like a little pig tail?  What fabrics are you quilting through?  Batiks, white-on-white, or ???
