is there a way to see the total stitches per color?

I use stitchboard quite often, but I don't use the pattern that is generated, I just use it to go by then I create a duplicate manually through spreadsheets so that I can put in numbers so that I don't have to count every single stitch.  This will take me hours to days to do depending on the dificulty of the pattern, some patterns I can create completely from just looking at a picture, but when too dificult I turn to stitchboard to somewhat simplify it for me.  I was wondering if there is a feature that adds the number of stitches per color? Here is an example of a pattern i started for my craft business name. Right now you see duplicate numbers  in one color because I'm in the image creating process, once I have the image all made up (manually) I go through and number all the stitches per color on every row of stitches.  It's a long process, but once I start on a project I don't have to waste time counting stitches over and over again.  Fortunately I don't have to type every number with spreadsheet you can drag through the cells and will number for you, but sometime I will turn to graph paper and hand write the pattern.  I do not print my patterns, because I am hard at seeing and I find using the computer also helps me keep track of what row and what stitches I have done already by highlighting the stitches already done.

Tineewolf,
Welcome! Smile
I'm not sure if I'm understanding your question. On the first page of your pattern, the summary shows each symbol, color number, count (for each color) and color description.
If this count isn't what you're referring to, please let me know.

Hi,

I'm also not exactly sure what you're asking.

Might an additional word chart help?  When creating a .pdf, you can also select a word chart.  The word chart would list the number of stitches for each color in each row.
