There are four methods of adding a motif pattern to an Embroidery Design in EmbroideryStudio 4.5
- Individually placed randomly (Stamp)
- As a Run
- As a Column
- As a Fill
Each of these applications is based on the same library of Motif shapes.
To select the motif you wish to use as a stamp you must select the motif from any of the sets by opening the Fill or Outline
Choose from either Motif outline properties 1 or 2
Motif Fill properties 3 or 4
Make your selection 5
Then activate the Individual motif Tool 7 and click where you need the motif to be placed.
The motif has an anchor/rotation point, Left-clicking once then moving the mouse will rotate the motif, at the same time holding down the SHIFT key will resize the motif and a second click will place the motif and you can move to the next location for a new placement.
If you do not need to resize or rotate left-click once followed by ENTER or SPACEBAR ensuing motifs can be placed by moving the mouse then ENTER or SPACE without the need for a left-click.
ESC key will deactivate the tool when you are finished.
