hey,

is it possible tot copy your pattern, then press paste. and mayby mirror the pattern. or rotate the intire pattern? i don’t see the tools, so i think its not possible… But it can be handy for drawing bra patterns…

Hi,

You need a test build.

Hi @Tinekedw!

The test build (download from http://valentina-project.org) has Group, Rotate, and Flip tools under the Operations section in Draw Mode. Let us know on the forum :writing_hand: how you use the new tools!

sounds excitting!! I’m gonna try wright away… Tanks for the tip


#5

i’m trying to group some lines, but it doesn’t work. i think i’m doing something wrong. when i use the group button, and press on a point or line… it selects it… but when i go to the next point or line, it doesn’t join the group. i tried also the enter button,but that doesn’t work… so i’m not shure what to do

sorry


#6

ooooooh!!! I found it… just CTRL and at the end enter ok, now i can experiment a bit


#7

Ok,

i used the tool “flipping object by line”. I used the CTRL button to select some markpoint and lines. clicked enter to conrfirm. now i can rotate the selected shape… BUT, it only remembered the curves and point… the straight lines dessipeared.


#8

i also wanted to rotate around point “BBB” at the top. but i couldn’t select that point. i think because that point is also in de shape. I’m i doing something wrong? Or is this not possible yet? thanks

@Tinekedw,

I think you have discovered a problem with the Group & rotate workflow. Can you submit an issue on our bitbucket issues list? Please include all steps and post your images. Thanks!


#10

You can rotate only points and curves.


#11

This not make any sense. If you rotate around point why are you trying to select it for rotation? It will stay where it is. So Valentina blocks such selection.


#12

its not only the rotation i use. but the flipping object around that point… i use that so i could use one pattern for a bra, to create another kind of pattern… No problem, i will figure out another way to do it… thanks anyway


#13

Just don’t select that point in a transformation list. I told you, this make no sense. Such a points will not be translated and will stay where they are.


#14

oh, yes… i understand now… sorry… i didn’t get it wright away… thanks!! works perfectly!

Hi, I am interested in this feature in the “Draw” tab so the front back, or sides are not on top of each other. I guess that’s how it’s traditionally done in pattern making but my mind does not work that way. I have started several times to make a pattern and get frustrated because of the one on top of the other way of looking at my piece and end up not finishing.

Is there a way to do this in the draw tab or should I change the way I think?

Best,

Jason

Hi @Jason, Normally, in the 2nd pattern piece, you can click on the point B (starting point) and drag it anywhere you would like to.


#17

I call this a base point (alwayse red). Each pattern piece has it. Moving this point also move whole pattern piece.


#18

Thank you :slight_smile:


#19

you are trying to attach the top part of the pattern making a dart in the bottom of the cup, right? In that case you might want to try to put a new point on top off BBB and use that one for turning?
