Re: Making gridded patterns

not grid but guides....create guides and snap to guide (it's default on so you might have turned it off) if it's on...when you use the pencil or brush tool when you hover over it it'll snap to guide if it's close to it...

Re: Making gridded patterns

another way would be to draw one thread and crop it so that when pasted side by side they'll all be the same and use the same technique of dragging and dropping a pattern except instead of squares you're dragging a long vertical rectangle onto an image that is 5 times it's width and the pattern will...

Re: Making gridded patterns

Use guides. Image -> Guides -> New Guide. Create multiple guides that are evenly spaced since you can enter exact position (by pixels). Then once you have all your guides, you can choose View->Snap To Guides (I think it's on by default already). But after that you can use the brush tool and hover ov...

Re: Plug-in for this one piece, not useful unless you want it

I have attached the artwork created using this plug-in in 1st post now.
My comment on that post isn't all important (it just said to go to this thread to try/play with the plug-in).

Re: Making gridded patterns

if your "kloster block" or whichever pattern is not contained in the exact square (going over gridlines like you say), maybe you'd want to do it like connecting pipes over more than just it's own grid. like you could do multi-layer...for example for the ones where stitches are going from top to bott...

Re: Making gridded patterns

I wasn't sure if you could understand me from words only...so here are steps (I hope I understood you correctly about your grid designing of using repeated motifs). Here goes: 1. File -> New (for example:set New image as 11px x 11px) 2. Zoom in. 3. View -> Show Grid 4. Image -> Configure Grid, then ...

Re: Making gridded patterns

if you draw your pattern using 1 pixel to represent 1 motif square..you can upscale it without interpolation to have for example 20px x 20px squares solid colors, then you can color select and drop/fill any 20x20px motif on it to fill it (or fill on a separate layer so that when you select the next ...

Re: Making gridded patterns

I am not sure if I understand the stitch patterns are all different part. If it's one color then there must be places that has that color and places that doesn't have that color...so it's really 2 different colors (one to represent color and one to represent non existence of color or maybe transpare...

Re: Alpha-Layers to SVG Plug-in

This turns out to be Windows problem where filenames are defaulted as being case insensitive. So when a.svg is created, the file system treats it the same as A.svg, that's why it's overwritten. On Linux this doesn't happen. I read online that's there's ways to make a specific folder case sensitive o...
