Hi there - I'm so glad I found your site~ YAY! I'm a new designer and have been playing with MacStitch on my iBook - and love it~ I am having some trouble exporting the pdf's as I'd like: and wonder if you have any tips for exporting .chart docs to a more formatted page? I'm hoping to have a well-designed pattern template to export into and am at a loss. The pdfs I've done so far are functional, but I'd like to add some text about the designs and my email address to each of the pages of the pattern - suppose I could do the email on the copyright line, too.... Anywho - your insights and tips would be so helpful!~ thanks! w
Yes, I am enjoying working with MacStitch on my iMac, also, Wendy.
I don't tend to add my e-mail address, but do add my web site domain name to the Copyright line under the Properties section, Wendy, as shown below.
I then pick the Export PDF function, from under the File menu and use the settings shown below.
I find that this is sufficient to enable the stitcher to work from the chart, and to have an idea of what the finished project should look like.
If I want to add any extra information to the pdf I can do so by using PDFpen Pro.
