How do I avoid gap in stitches at tie-off of satin column?

Wondering what I could do to avoid the gap in satin stitching at tie-off location in satin column.

In the baby gown I just embroidered, there was a gap in the stitching where the tie off occurred (as though there had been two objects that didn't meet). Sorry, I didn't take picture before I fixed it by hand with needle & thread.

The gap was across the entire width of the column where, on screen, you see the tieoff:


I attached the emb file, but it is a custom esa font, so I hope you will still be able to see.

For the next item (a baby beanie), I made the K a separate object so it could tie off at the end (rather than middle of the column). I didn't notice a gap (but also, the name was much smaller and it didn't have the large initial underneath it).

Any ideas?

I am not sure if I am 100% following you. I assume the "gap" refers to where the tie-off ends, and you don't want it showing at the middle of the satin column.

You can try option #1 or #3, which from on screen, it seems less noticeable;
Or adjust the length (see screenshot);
Or break-apart the words, and move the end point (of first letter) to the end of the stroke which will make the tie-off less noticeable.

Hey Antony,
What? You don't understand my rambling ? LOL ... just kidding.

It may have been a fluke .... the tie off itself wasn't noticeable. I wish I had thought to take picture. I suspect the process of tieying off pulled the other satin stitches away and created a gap (like an intersection of T if one column is super wide and next set of stitches pulls them apart).

I did do as you said with the next item and isolated the K so I could move the tie off.

Hi pascale I opened your emb file but could not find gap in it. I am not sure if it is the same but I used to get the same problem earlier. wilcom somehow and sometime add gaps wherever there is injected object or a tie-off. I used to regenerate stitches to bring them back to normal.

Thank you yogisaw -- you are correct. I double checked on screen too and there was no gap!
It was only when it sewed that the gap appeared.
