Marking Sections

Marking Sections in Warp or Weft for Assembly

Sections can be marked over any span of warp or weft threads. These marked sections are used later in section assembly to generate a new WIF.

The section marker tool is on the design menu. This tool is similar to the selection tool, except that when you drag across threads a section is recorded and the section is highlighted in a color for easy identification.

The following screen shows sections marked in the threading. Hovering over one of the section, the popup shows the name of the section, and location (warp threads 19-23).

The default names of the section start with "Section" plus a number. The section can be easily renamed, deleted or modified. When hovering over the section using the section marker tool, right click to edit (see Section Editor below).

The section editor can also be accessed from section assembly by double clicked the section in the available sections area.

If you inadvertently draw a 1-thread section, it's difficult to select and right click it to remove it. Instead, click Section Assembly to view the sections and double click the section you want to delete or modify. The following example shows selecting a Weft marked section after double clicking:

The Insert and Remove Threads function can be to modify marked sections to add and remove threads. Other sections below will move accordingly and preserve their relative start and end thread. With the section being modified, you may need to change the start or end location in the section editor after modifying the number of threads in the section.

The maximum number of marked sections is 80 for warp and 80 for weft.
