Moving Charts, the Key and Chart Elements
Rows, columns or stitches can be moved within a chart or from one chart to another within the same diagram file by dragging them. Charts and the key can be dragged anywhere on the canvas and also be automatically arranged.
To move rows, columns and stitches;-
Select the items to be moved (see Selection Tools). Selected items should be of the same type, for example only rows or only columns or only stitches but not a mixture of these.
Click down on any of the selected items and then, whilst the button is still down, move the mouse to move the selected items.
Release the mouse button to finish moving.
When moving rows and columns, it is the contents of the rows and columns that are moved rather than the rows or columns themselves. The original rows and columns are filled with knit stitches and the default colour / yarn.
When moving rows from one chart to another, each chart must have the the same number of columns, otherwise strange things happen. Likewise when moving columns, the number of rows must match.
The selection should not contain hidden 'no stitches' as this will cause strange results. To move areas of a chart containing hidden 'no stitches' 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.
Rows, columns and stitches can only be moved within a chart diagram file. To copy chart elements to a chart in another chart diagram file use Copy and Paste (see Copying and Pasting).
