General Usage Information

Our system periodically removes older work pattern files. Currently, files remain on the system for about an hour. This means that if you create a pattern and select the Make Changes option, then let your computer sit for over an hour before resending your changes, you will probably lose what youíre working on. Likewise, if you create a pattern, and wait too long before submitting it to our Free or For Sale area, it will probably get lost.

To prevent this pattern loss, there are two solutions.

  1. Be sure you create and submit your pattern in less than one hour.
  2. Create your pattern, save it to disk, then later use our Pattern Upload to send it with no time restrictions.
