Default large full zip sweatshirts

Hi - Just wondering if anyone can help me with a challenge that I've hit. I have a customer who is interested in large sized, full zipped, lined hoodies (fleece). The logo is LARGE, about 12 inches wide. I've been able to do a couple of samples, but have trouble with getting the fill to run in the same direction. Sometimes creating a gap where the two areas of fill meet.

I am working with Stitch 2000 from datastich, and am somewhat new to digitizing. I've read you can change the angle of fill so that it will run the same direction. Does anyone know how to change the angle for fill for this software?

Thanks for any info!

I do not have stitch 2000, but every digitizing software I've worked with or trialed has a manual built-in. Usually, when the program is open press F1 (or click Help etc.) and a new window will pop up. From there, usually there is a search function or Index. Just search for "angle" or "direction" and see if there are any references to stitch angle, stitch direction, fill angle, and fill direction.

Now, about the gaps between fills. You need lots of pull compensation to avoid those gaps so make sure to overlap those fills. In my experience, I've had much better results when fill angles are not going in the same direction. I generally interlock where fills meet.
