PCStitch Ver. 11 Features:
*Customizable Workspace & Multi-Windows:
Flexible easy to use workspace, completely customizable to your individual needs, including customizable tool bars and multiple project windows. Panels give you instant access to instructions, notes, the palette and other parts of your design. Float the panels, move them to different places, or set them up to slide out when needed, giving you your ultimate designing environment!
*Graphic File Import:
PCStitch's Import Wizard can take almost any graphic image and convert it into a cross-stitch pattern. You determine the size and number of colors and let PCStitch do the rest! You can even crop your image and erase portions out of it!
This feature allows you to collect pieces of cross-stitch into categories and insert them into future designs. Includes over 2000 individual designs and over 90 stitched alphabets. A panel makes displaying and applying library items easy!
Method 1:True Type fonts - Any True Type font installed on your computer can be used to add words or phrases to your designs. Simply select the font you want to use and the height of each letter. Select the area where you want to insert your letters and start typing. PC Stitch converts your keystrokes into stitched letters.
Method 2: Stitched fonts- You can create any type of stitched font using PCStitch. Once you have designed the letters, use them over and over again in any future pattern! They are used just like the True Type fonts! You can easily convert text from TrueType based to Stitched Alphabet based. Your possibilities are endless!
Add predefined borders to your creation. You can also create your own custom borders for a cross-stitch pattern and use them in future patterns! Creating a border is simple and easy!
*Specialty Stitches and Backstitches:
Unmatched support of basic and specialty stitches. Basic stitches supported include full, half, quarter and petite as well as French knots and beads. A flexible backstitch mode allows you to anchor your stitches anywhere in the grid locations. You can draw backstitches in point-to-point mode or tracing mode. An automatic function allows you to select an area and have it automatically outlined using backstitches! And specialty stitches are a breeze to create and use with PCStitch!
What are objects? They are best explained with an example. A specialty stitch or a library piece is a combination of multiple basic stitches. PCStitch combines these stitches together and lets you move them as one. You can drop a tree from a library or other "object" (such as text and borders) into your design and move it around with a simple click and drag. Also, objects are "on top" of your design area, so moving them does not disturb the stitches below them. You can also select any area of your design and turn it into an object, allowing you to move it as one thing!
*Pattern Notes: Pattern notes allow you to drop an icon anywhere in a pattern and add text and graphics to display what the icon represents. As an example, your
pattern could include a button or other embellishment. You could use a note to define the location of the button. The text of the note would explain what the button is. Your note could even include a picture of the button and a web site where it could be purchased! Notes are optionally printed in the pattern information sheet.

*Create Custom Stitches:
Creating a custom stitch is as easy as drawing it once and putting it into the collection.

Remember, when you drop it into future designs, the entire stitch will be dropped using the current floss color in the future design.
