TruEmbroidery™ 3 Software Newsletter August 2016
Welcome to the TruEmbroidery™ 3 newsletter. This month we will review Object Insert and Delete Points tools in Modify when editing objects, and some techniques for Object Editing in Modify
Stitch boundaries around selected areas of stitches sometimes need small adjustments of their points to fine-tune the shaping of the area. You may simply wish to change the shaping of the area of stitches to give the design a new look. Use the Insert and Delete Points tools for maximum control.
When you use Object editing and select an area of stitching, you can click and hold a point and drag it into a new location. You can convert a round point to a square by holding down the FN keyboard key. But sometimes there are simply too many points, or not enough points, to obtain the desired shaping. Then you can use the Insert and Delete Points icons, which are found in the Object Menu in the Control Panel of TruE™ 3 Modify. (Object editing is not available in TruE™ Modify.)
When you select Delete Points , the cursor displays a minus (-) sign to show you are ready to click points to remove them.
When you select Insert Points , the cursor displays a plus (+)s sign to show you are ready to click on the perimeter line and add additional points.
When you are done inserting and deleting points, simply hold the Control keyboard key and click the mouse to open an alternate menu, and then select Finish Insert Points Tool or Finish Delete Points Tool.
With the advanced editing capability of Object's Point editing, you can make virtually limitless changes to your existing embroidery collection! Learn more about Object editing in the Tips and Techniques section.
