5.  USE THE SYMBOLS ON THE SYMBOL MENUS FOR MARKING

    C.P.M. has 2 pop-down SYMBOL menus that give you a fairly good selection of matching and instructional markings.  The selection of SYMBOLS found on these two menus includes those used on commercial "home sewing" patterns and those used for patterns in the garment industry.

5.1.   The SYMBOLS-INST symbols make it possible for you to include very detailed sewing construction information on the pattern.

5.2.  You will probably use the SYMBOLS-MRK symbols DOTs, PUNCH HOLE, NOTCHES or DIAMONDS the most for matching.  This selection provides markings that are in common use in the garment industry and markings that are used in patterns for home sewing.  Use those that are appropriate to your situation.  Included are STRAIGHT GRAIN  and FOLD LINE marking symbols.

NOTE:  There are three options for judging appropriate distances: "eye-balling" (visually deciding on distance or placement), referencing to the GRID on the screen and using the measuring TAPE.  (See instructions in the section 6).

    5.3.  PUTTING MATCHING DOTS ON THE PATTERN

    DOTs are quite simple to use.  SELECT the size you want from the SYMBOLS-MRK pop-down menu.  The computer will ask:
