I see that we can change the number of stitches across, can you change it vertically. If so how can I do that?

Only the number of stitches across can be changed at this time; the system calculates the optimal number of vertical rows. We originally did that so people wouldn't skew or truncate their patterns. At a later date we'll have a version that will allow the vertical rows to be changed, but I'm sorry to say I don't have any specifics as to when that will be.

There is a work around to this:  Under image inhancements, select the option to rotate and rotate the image 90 degrees.  then the stitch count will apply to the height and not the width.

Thanks for reply.  This is correct in case you want to specifically set the height however the system will then calculate the other dimension (in this case the width).

I do have a new feature coming that's already in a test version that allows you to enter both dimensions but it's not enabled quite yet.  It works well and when used you have to remember that the resulting stitched item will no longer be proportional.  So if you enter 100 stitches across and 500 stitches down it would create a pattern that would stitch up to be a very long item.

Like I say, this upcoming feature has been tested but is not enabled quite yet.
