Need some help please, neophyte!
« on: 23 February 2013, 23:20:00 »
Hello,
I'm brand new to this program but loving it, using it for charity work.  BUT can anyone tell me if it can calculate how much of each colored fabric is required?
I thought I read somewhere that the option was available, but can't find now that I need it.
Thanks!

Hi,
You can get the estimated fabric usage as a printed overview, so go to menu "File" -> "Print", then select the "Fabric Usage" tab.
If you based your design on an image and get too many different fabric shades, you may need the "Edit" -> "Reduce Number of Colors" menu item to group similar shades together.
