Pattern Editor
- The Warp / Weft pattern is input using the text format. This is a very simple method and easy to understand. A pattern like 4A4B would denote 4 threads (ends or picks) of ColorA followed by 4 threads of ColorB, and so on. 8 colors are available in the Warp and Weft respectively. A pattern can be a maximum of 1200 Ends/Picks.

- While copying the warp pattern to weft, the software automatically adjusts the weft pattern to the closest equivalent pattern based on the ratio of the ends/inch (or ends/cm) to the picks/inch (or picks/cm).

- You can reverse a given pattern and view the new fabric.

- Auto Pattern : Generate random new patterns from an existing warp and weft pattern. Create a collection of imaginative and aesthetic designs in minutes !!

- A color library of 2000 colors is provided. Each of these colors can be edited and saved with a name.

- To use a certain color in a pattern simply drag it from the color library and drop it at the Color position in the warp/weft pattern.

Cloth Swatch and Card
