However, these options serve to snap whole objects not just edited nodes.

These commands, however, are supposed to be used with short-cut keys, not via this menu. This means that character does not need to be digitized as so many small parts in a specific order and connected each to the other. User cannot affect the order of sewing within character, except definition of start and end point. We will start a new column here. Snap to Nearest Node command moves selected node on top of nearest node which belongs to other object. Create Second Edge command works on columns and objects with two sides.
Manual Digitizing of Lettering Studio includes lettering tool for quick and easy creation of text labels, but it requires Alphabet or font file containing the lettering style you want to use. In case of multiple columns, connection must be used to ensure continuous sewing without jumps or trims. However, user has less control over the stitches order. These commands help to locate first and last node on complex edges with large number of nodes.
If underlying graphic template is clear and sharp enough, you can use trace tool to vectorize character edges instead of manual digitizing. This column mode allows to digitize columns with different number of nodes on each side. Use Duplicate and Mirror Horizontally command. To add Opening to Fill or Sfumato, the Fill or Sfumato must be either selected or it must be the last object in the Object Inspector list. This option allows to ‘lock’ most of the nodes so that they do not interfere with new nodes.
Select Generate Stitches command from the pop-up menu that appears on the right mouse button click. Measurement Tool measures distances and angles in design. When disabled, user can edit only last 2 nodes on each edge. Create one edge and emhird first point of the second edge, then use this command.

It means that it does not snap selected node to nodes of actually edited object, only to manuzl of other mabual. Start point is marked by small cross bottom-left side. Select Column tool or Column with Pattern toolwhich is the same as previous, but uses texture on wide parts.
Sfumato is an optional part of the Studio. When doing a complex outline, some outline parts start not on end of previous part, but on its beginning, instead. Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal and vertical axes is explained on the following example: Use zoom tool to zoom in left mouse button click or zoom out right mouse button click.
Basic tools for creation and editing of vector objects in Studio are located on a left-side panel. The tools in the top section of the panel serve to manipulate the finished objects and to control the work area zoom and pan. This will place the end point at the right side. Connections are often included between respective characters too, for the same reason. Finished character contains 3 columns and 2 connections. To hide connection under cover stitches of the next column, make connection of the “V” shape as illustrated below: Please note that column object overlaps areas at left and right side to avoid gaps in stitching caused by pull effect of the fabric.
Each character contains one or more columns.
These connections are marked by blue arrows. Studio includes lettering tool for quick and easy creation of text labels, but it requires Alphabet or font file containing the lettering style you want to use.
Create one quarter of the object.
Approach 2 – faster, but with less control In this case we will use automatic generation of stitches order auto-columnwhich creates stitches in required order automatically. This is another method to change which stitch will be last. Now create second column object.

This tutorial deals with manual digitizing of small satin stitch lettering. The second approach is not fully manual, in fact, and can use trace tool to vectorize character. Swap Edges is the next command; it is intended for columns and other objects that have two sides.
Digitize outer side of letter with a plain fill tool. Please note that the end point of last column and whole character is in the bottom left corner of the last column green arrowbecause start point is in the top right corner.
Draw first part of the object and then use Duplicate and Mirror command to create second part of the object, which is symmetrical to the first part about the axis passing through the first and last node. The corner at top part of “A” is too sharp for a single continuous column object.
You can use “group 1” command that is intended for lowest level groups. Therefore, we will use several columns and connections. In this case all objects will be drawn manually node-by-node in a specific order. Reverse Nodes Order comes next; it changes the order of nodes. Select Previous NodeSelect Next Node commands switch selection to previous or next node on the vector edge.

The first command, Align Beginning to Previous Objectmoves the beginning of an edited object embirr the end of previous object. Character “A” cannot be digitized with a single column object. Creation of object symmetrical about both horizontal and vertical axes is explained on the following example:.
