To place a group of stitches into a repeat;-
Select the stitches (see Selection Tools). Stitches in the same row must be adjacent to one another.
Alternatively, one or more rows or charts can be selected. In that case, all of the stitches in the selected row(s) or chart(s) will be added to a repeat. If no selections are made, then all stitches in all of the charts will be added to a repeat.
On the main menu bar, select Repeat > Place Stitches in Selection into a Repeat. The Edit Repeat dialog opens.
Change properties as desired. Note that repeats can optionally have a border associated with them. The border is purely visual.
The number of repeats can either be a single number or numbers separated by commas. The latter can be used for charts where a repeat is worked a varying number of times.
The selected stitches will be placed into repeats. This happens on a per row basis so that there is a separate repeat for each row. All the stitches in the same row are placed into the same repeat and all repeats initially have the same properties. If a border is associated with the repeats then this is drawn around the stitches and an entry added to the key if needed. Values from the current Appearance stylesheet (see Editing a user Appearance stylesheet) are used as initial values for the border. These can be changed at any time by using the Edit Border dialog.
