Hoe kan ik letters ingeven zodat ze ook nog mooi zichtbaar op patroon komen te staan?

hello keiji, the chart is a very good one; you've done a very good job. It has a downside though, one tiny bit you missed. i used the import command and tried it on bunch of red irish flower and the shadow picked up the color of dark navy blue, as i tested it, it should have been DMC #814 or dmc #917. i haven't done any stitching yet. would it be too much to ask if you could make it into a color matching with two color combination to achieve a truer color?

Thank you for using KG-Chart
I know the current palette color is not ideal for converting an image to a chart. I'm right now working on refining a palette with more color accuracy (hopefully). Combining two thread in KG-Chart is very challenging, but I will research if/how it's possible in the future version.

This is fantastic - thank you for making it available to us. I have a quick question - is there an easy way to create text on a grid? Or does that need to be done by hand, pixel by pixel?
Re: A Cover Page
#11keiji @ 03/27/11 5:00 PM
Sorry for my late answer. Right now you need to create a text by hand. I'm planning to implement a "text" tool soon.

Thank You for this!!!!! Your program have been very very helpful =) but one request [if possible] make our own fonts [from p.c. or mac] available to use in program so that we can use our own library for fonts and make new ones of our own. As you know fonts are hard to come by and this would put the icing on the cake so to speak lol

I wish to use the program on a computer that does not connect to the internet. I managed to install the program and get it working, but do you have the user's manual available in .pdf or another format that I can download and transfer to my working computer?

Is there a program out there that will graph a knitting project with colors?? Would your program work for that?

Hello Janet,
Thank you for using KG-Chart.
I'll create a PDF version soon.

Hello Kay,
I'm not sure what you mean by "graph a knitting project with colors". You can try LE version for free to see if it works for your purpose.

pls help how can i get the program to easily convert my graduation picture into a cross stitch pattern..thaks in advance
Re: A Cover Page
#23Amanda @ 12/09/11 6:41 AM
I imported an image to have converted, but I can't seem to be able to have the backstitches already made. I only can find how to do the backstitches if I create them myself. Is there a way to have the backstitches created & the corresponding stitches around it recreated to what stitch they need to be without me having to do it manually? Thank You in advance.

Hi kenjie, its been a year now since i downloaded the first version of the KGchart, there's been a impressive development and am using it now, done about 3 pieces, i edited the colors as i progressed in the project to achieve a truer 2 color combinations, great job, thanks for the freeware.

Fault report
#26Ross @ 07/21/13 9:38 PM
Hi, I'm using KG-Chart LE v1.24.04 (5/6/2012) on Windows Vista SP2, and I'm very impressed with it. But I think I've found an unfortunate bug. If I select my pattern and "Cut" it, then "Paste" it back (e.g. to reposition it), it looks as though it's worked, but if I go into "Print", or save then reload the file, the canvas is blank and my design has gone! Perhaps the "Paste" is only updating the screen work area, but not the internal data structure? Hope this helps, thanks, Ross.
Half stitches

How can I create a half stitch? Also how can I create a drawn line like for a belt on a girls dress? Nic
