Checking PatchDraw patches to ensure they are closed

All patches must be closed in PatchDraw applique to color or print as applique patterns.

To check patches, to ensure they are closed:

  • Click the Shape tool
  • Place the mouse cursor over one of the nodes in your patch.
  • A tool-tip bubble will appear and tell you if the patch is closed or open.
  • It will also tell the type of node and the number of segments making up the patch.

Note: If you cannot get the tool-tip to appear, make sure the Edit Node pop-up menu is closed. Then you will be able to get the tool-tips.
