Valentina User Manual: Tools[edit | edit source]
Nature of tools[edit | edit source]
Tools described in this section have been especially created so that, when you use them along with the measurements that you enter in Tape, it will automatically resize all the pattern pieces when you change the measurements. If you have created Standard sizes in Tape, then you may select a different size at the bottom left of your screen and the pattern will automatically resize. Height is the actual height of the person and Size is the actual bust size of the person.
As you can see from the above images, I have changed the size and B11 has moved slightly to the right (A4 to B11 is the only line in this example that I am actually using a formula from the measurements) and you can see that the move caused the front shoulder to move out of the image.
Help sentence[edit | edit source]
As soon as you select a tool, there is a little help sentence that pops up in the bottom left corner, like this:
When in doubt, see what this tells you to do.
Groups of tools[edit | edit source]
Valentina tools are currently grouped according to the object they create or use. You should take into account that grouping is conditional and used to make working with Valentina easier.
