Unique shape labeling
« on: 30 October 2013, 15:44:41 »
I've done a quilt design & I'm trying to print out the design with the label unique shapes option switched on but I'm seeing a number of different labels for shapes that I expect to be the same. I've had the snap to grid options set on so I don't understand why it thinks I've got different shapes.
How do I make them the same?
I've let the program do this for me & not named them myself.

It's hard to say: the software only groups shapes together that are exactly the same. That is, you can match them up by rotating them. Maybe there are slight imperceivable differences between the shapes, or maybe the software is a bit too strict about comparing shapes.

In any case, I can't give specific directions on how to make the shapes equal. If you want me to take a look at the design to find out more, please send the .qa2 file to me by email.
