What is a PMV file?

A PMV file is a spreadsheet template created by PlanMaker, a spreadsheet application included with SoftMaker Office. It contains data organized in rows and columns of cells and may also include formulas and charts. PMV files are used for making .PMD and .PMDX spreadsheets.

PMV files are saved in a proprietary format and are similar to Microsoft Excel templates (.XLT or .XLTX files). They can also be converted to XLT or XLTX files in PlanMaker.

PMV files were replaced by .PMVX files as the primary file type used to store templates. However, PlanMaker still supports PMV files.

PMV files are typically opened in PlanMaker to create a PMD or PMDX file. They may also be converted to various formats in PlanMaker, including .PDF, XLS, XLSX, .XLSM, .XLTM, .TMD, and .RTF.

Brother Decorative Stitch Pattern

Developer Brother International Corporation

A PMV file may also be a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) file that contains embroidery instructions that tell a Brother sewing machine how to stitch a pattern on a piece of fabric. Only Brother sewing machines with the "My Custom Stitch" feature, such as the NQ3500D or NQ900 models, support PMV files.

More Information

The PMV format is one of many file formats used in the embroidering community. Other notable formats include .PES, .DST, .HUS, .VP3, and .JEF.

You can view and edit most embroidery files on a computer with special software, such as PREMIER+ Embroidery or BERNINA ARTlink. However, Brother designed the PMV format to be viewed and edited only on Brother sewing machines with the "My Custom Stitch" feature.

When using the "My Custom Stitch" function, you can design your stitch pattern by entering the X and Y values that correspond to your custom design. As you enter the values, the sewing machine's screen displays the visual of your design.

After completing your design, you can save your pattern to the "Decorative Stitch" memory on your sewing machine. When saving the file, the sewing machine software creates the PMV file to store the stitching instructions, along with copyright information and sewing settings for the pattern.

How to open a PMV file

PMV files are not meant to be opened on a computer. They are only supported by Brother sewing machines with the "My Custom Stitch" feature.

However, you can transfer PMV files from a Brother sewing machine to a computer with a portable USB storage device to store them. You can then transfer the files back to the sewing machine when you want to sew the patterns on your fabric.
