Feature Details -
Pattern Maker allows you to export your pattern chart into the
following types of graphics images:
BMP, JPEG, TIFF RGB, TIFF CMYK, TIFF 8-bit grayscale, GIF, PCX,
Windows Metafile (WMF), Enhanced Windows Metafile (EMF),
and EPS (8-bit grayscale, raster only). The graphics
resolution is user selectable.
The pattern information of your pattern
can be exported into a Rich Text Format (RTF) file. This
is a generic text format that maintains formatting information
and is supported by most of the major word processing programs.
After importing this file into your word processor or
publishing program, you can then edit and reformat the
information as necessary to fit your needs.
Note that the information exported by
this feature consists of the information and formatting provided
by the standard printing feature of the program. For more
control over the layout and formatting of the information, you
would want to use the Page
Layout feature instead.
Another way to export your design from
Pattern Maker is via the Windows OLE feature. This
capability allows you to embed or link a pattern into a document
created by another OLE-capable Windows program.
The document might be a cross-stitch leaflet that is
being created using a desktop publishing or word processing
In this scenario, you would instruct your
publishing program to insert or link a 'Pattern Maker
Cross-Stitch Chart' object into your leaflet document.
You would then see a 'picture' of the chart inserted into
the document. You
could then size and move the picture to fit into your chart.
If you later found that you needed to
edit the design, you could re-open it in Pattern Maker simply by
double-clicking the picture.
Pattern Maker would then open and allow you to edit the
design. When you
exited from Pattern Maker, the changes would automatically be
reflected in the picture of the pattern shown in the document.
