Using the select and copy functions, areas of warp and weft can be selected and copied. The Design Repeats provides some options that can make copying faster.
Starting with a simple example, the Quick Repeats tab allows a quick selection of all the Warp and/or Weft and allows a specified number of repeats.
In the above example the Warp is to be repeated 3 times and will measure 7.3 inches (based on EPI from Project Info | Sizing). Similarly you can see the length based on 20 repeats and the number of threads. Once Apply is clicked, the changes are reflected in the design.
Tip: Ctrl-Z will undo the copy.
The Copy + tab allows selection of any range of warp or weft threads, and do a normal copy, mirroed or reverse copy to a specified location.
In addition, the number of times to repeat that copy can be added, a hard stop specified and color either included or not.
Options to replace (the default), overlay or insert are shown, but the overlay and insert options will be available in a later release.
In the above example, suppose you want to create a mirror image of the warp from 1 to 44, and place that mirror starting at number 45. Click Apply to the above and the WIF changes as follows:
The Copy + functions are powerful and can allow some fast manipulation of designs.
TempoWeave does not yet support copying from Warp to Weft and visa-versa. This will option will be included in a later release.
