When you say “format” I assume you don’t mean a different file type?
Here’s what you can do in SeamlyMe:
You can create a measurement file by importing the measurements used in an existing pattern file. Obviously only useful if you only have a pattern file and no measurement file.
You can create a measurement file - let’s call it Bret.vit. You can load Bret.vit… add measurements to it and rename it Tom.vit. Now create a pattern - lets call it pattern1.val - using measurements from Bret.vit. You can load pattern1.val using Bret.vit OR Tom.vit - as Tom.vit contains all the measurements from Bret.vit. Now create pattern2.val using measurements from Tom.vit. Loading pattern2.val you can only use Tom.vit as Bret.vit does not contain all the measurements in Tom.vit… or you get this:
In terms of making it easier to add known measurements in SeamlyMe:
You can collapse the measurements tree groups:
You can filter the measurements tree… for example if you only want “neck” measurements:
Hope this helps.
