TempoWeave Defaults and Settings
Home Settings Icon
Settings that apply to your installation of TempoWeave, regardless of the weaving design, are stored here. Some of these settings are defaults and can be changed at the project (WIF) level.
Default Settings - Loom
Example of Default Loom Settings - Home Settings
Default number of shafts and treadles can be set for your most commonly designed weaving designs. This setting can be changed for any design under the Project menu. Note that the default shafts and treadles only impacts new designs created after the setting is changed. To change shafts and treadles on current designs, change as described in Project Shafts and Treadles.
The default mode of designing is to use a Tie-Up. Many design with a tie-up even if they Convert to Lift Plan for a table or dobby loom when the design is complete.
Default Settings - Files
Example of Default Files Settings - Home | Settings
The default directory location for saving your designs is documents/tempoweave unless a different location is specified in the "Default Location for new WIF Files". Typically this default location will have subfolders created to store WIFs by categories that assist in finding designs.
Telemetry is used for debugging purposes.
Version history is on by default. For more information see Design Version History.
Default Settings - Grid/Layout
Example of Default Grid/Layout Settings - Home | Settings
The Grid / Layout Options allow the weaver to change the grid with "thick" lines shafts and threads in the the warp and weft.
The grid overlay settings can be changed for any single design under Project Shafts and Treadles tab. See the Project Shafts and Treadles for example of setting the grid options. The grid options apply not only the the designer screen, but also to the Print functions.
The Thread Display Option area allows either numeric values or "blocks" to show for the Tie-up, Warp and Weft. These options are also available on the project design under the View options.
