Clicking on warp, weft, tie-up and color issues

  • I am clicking in the warp, weft or tie-up region and nothing is happening

My weaving draft has disappeared from the screen

  • When opening more than one weaving draft, a maximized draft can hide any other drafts open in the session. See this document on ways to see all currently open designs: Switching Between Open Weaving Designs

I can't see everything on the screen

Scroll bars for horizontal and vertical scrolling are used to move around in the WIF, whether in the threading, treadling or certain areas such as section assembly or color palettes. If you do not see a scroll bar, maximize the window by clicking the maximize symbol in the upper right corner of the weaving design screen; the scroll bar should then appear.

Some screens have divider lines between sections, such as section assembly. Hover the cursor between the two sections until the cursor changes to a "+", then drag the section in the direction you want to expand or shrink.

The zoom level can also be changed to show more or less on the screen by using cmd + or cmd -.
