Auto-adjust – no problem. Do it at start of day or whenever you’re starting a new quilt (senses resistance to needle – adjusts for conditions and/or work in hand. Especially do it if you’re getting needle over-run or for differing ambient temperatures.

Manual-adjust - may be best to alter things just one or two steps at a time before test-sewing. Just sneak up on settings that suit the present conditions. Should take only 10 seconds once you’ve got the hang of it and will make sewing more enjoyable for you.
