Help, No Dialog Box with Seam Allowance Tool



Hi, I am new to Valentina so I am probably doing something wrong. I can’t figure out how to create a work piece. Every time I use the seam allowance tool, even on simple patterns, I’ll drag the tool, highlighting all of the edges but no dialog box appears like in the tutorial. I can’t use the detail mode or layout since I can’t figure out creating a workpiece, so I’m worried I won’t be able to print.

I’m using on a Mac.



Do you know about our Wiki? @Grace, described some sections very well. Please, read about the help sentence.


Hi @shannanana When selecting the points of your pattern, you click on the actual points, lines and curves that you would like you pattern outline to follow - always in a clockwise direction. When you are done, press the Enter key on your computer to finish the selecting.

That should bring up the dialog box.

I’d suggest creating a square and practicing on it a few times just to get the hang of it :slight_smile:


Hi, @dismine, arcs are up :slight_smile:


Hi Grace,

Thank you so much for the advice. I got it working now!
