Pattern picture on pdf
August 17, 2017 at 10:41:08 AM
 
On my beading pdfs, I used to have a full pattern image on the first page which showed what my pattern would look like.  In other words, it showed the little squares for individual beads which was helpful to see what my finished pattern would actually look like.  Now, when I get my pdf, it is just the jpg image I uploaded.  How do I make the pattern image appear on the pdf - I don't know if I accidentally unclicked something.

Hi.

Thanks for asking!

Yes, this is a change that I made recently because some users were asking about having the individual stitches removed.

I can now see it's a total user-preference issue.  Some will want it one way, some the other.

I'm going to add an option in the blue "Preferences" tab on the left that will allow you to change the appearance of this image.

Actually there will probably be 3 options:
1. Show image as stitched (what you like)
2. Show image without stitch marks (what some commercial members have preferred)
3. Show original image (I'll just throw this in in case someone wants it.)

The #3 original image will be without stitch marks and the colors will be those from your original image and not those chosen from the program palette.

Anyway, please give me a day or two and I'll add this option.  I'll post again when it's done.

Terry

Hi again, mmignardi,

I just made an update regarding the image on the pdf cover page.

The new version defaults to show stitched items.  This should be how you wanted it.

If you do want to change the appearance in the future, here's a link that explains how to do it.

Hope this helps!

Thank you.  I'm impressed by how quickly you respond to users.  I appreciate that you try to accommodate what everyone wants even when they are sometimes opposites.  Amazing

Hi, mmignardi,

The bottom line is that we're the same as everyone else here.  We try to treat everyone like we want to be treated and try to be very responsive to what features users would like.

We're constantly rearranging our priority list and really, really listen to everyone who make suggestions.

Have fun with the program.

I wish I could tell you everything that's coming!  You'll see some announcements in the coming months.  Also a whole new look and operation coming.

Terry
