Dear Keije, please advise how to erase back stitches. I made a chart with cross stitches (which I can erase) and back stitches. I tried going over the back stitches with the background colour which worked on the chart, but they show up on the real view so don't look good. Thank you for your help.

Use the "Selection of Back Stitch" drawing tool (on the Other Stitch tab) and click on the area of back stitching you want removed. This will surround the area you want to delete with small black squares. Right click and select Cut.

Hope that helps.

Please use a "Selection tool for other stitches" to select the back stitches you want to delete, and hit "Del" key to delete them.

I have tried the suggestions here for deleting backstitches and still cannot get them to delete. Please explain again.

In a "Other Stitch" tab, chose "Selection" tool.
Then, select backstitches you want to delete and hit a "Delete" key. (Or, right click on the selection, and chose "Cut" from a popup menu)
