There is also a feature to Combine PDF Files which is used to combine the Multi Page PDF File and the PDF File of the written instructions into one PDF File.



The Create Text Image Window


The ‘Create Text Image’ Window is used to create an image for a graph design by adding design features to create a graph design.

First a graph in the desired style and size is added to the Canvas. This graph can then be used to layout the design features added to the graph design.

These design features included adding a background image, adding images on the design, adding lines and shapes and adding text to create a graph design.

All of these added design features can be scaled, rotated and flipped to create graph designs.

The graph design can be saved as a .hcgraphti file for further editing, and saved as an image ready to Import as a Background Image or Auto Pixelate on the graph in the ‘Create Graph’ Window. The saved image does not include the grid lines shown on the Canvas.



The Proportion Calculator Window


The ‘Proportion Calculator’ Window is used to calculate the required number of columns and rows for the different graph styles.

Not all Graph Style stitches or groups of stitches represented by one square on a graph are the same width and height.

Because of this the squares on the graph that represent the stitches are not always an exact square.

The proportion of the squares on the graph represents the proportion of the stitch or group of stitches used in the Graph Style.

As a result a graph design that is an exact square when finished will not always necessarily have the same number of columns and rows.

The Proportion Calculator can be used to calculate the required number of columns and rows for the different graph styles.



The Project Size Calculator Window


The ‘Project Size Calculator’ Window is used to calculate the approximate size of the finished project based on graph style, yarn weight and hook size.



The Graph Size Calculator Window

The Image Resizer Window


The ‘Image Resizer’ Window is used to resize and scale images and to save a selected area of an image as an image.

Images can be scaled or resized using either a width measurement or a percentage amount.

The scaled or resized image can then be saved as a .jpg, .png or .gif image.

An area of an image can also be selected and cropped and saved as a .jpg, .png or .gif image.



The Create Color Legend Window


The ‘Create Color Legend’ Window is used to create a color legend of the graph.

There are several different formats that can be used to include any or all of the following details - Color Number, Color Swatch, Color Name and Color Count.

The Color Legend can then be saved as an image to add to the ‘Multi-Page PDF’ of the finished graph design.
