When Fill Mode is active, an area of a chart or even a complete chart can be selected and then 'filled' with a yarn or stitch.
Fill Mode can be toggled on and off by selecting the Activate Fill Mode / Deactivate Fill Mode icon from the toolbar.
Activate the Fill Mode by selecting the Activate Fill Mode icon from the toolbar.
Select either a chart, one or more rows or a group of stitches.
Select a stitch or colour/ yarn from either the key in the chart diagram file or from the palette. The selected area will be filled with the selected stitch / colour / yarn.
The Fill Mode does not work for column selections. To use the Fill Mode to fill a column, make a stitch selection by selecting the topmost stitch in the column, holding down the Shift key and then selecting the bottommost stitch in the column.
If a 'no stitch' is hidden then this is not affected by the Fill Mode. To use the Fill Mode to edit a hidden 'no stitch' first unhide the hidden stitches by selecting either the chart or row(s) and selecting Edit > Show Hidden Items in Selection from the main menu.
