3. DELETE THE Drafting Lines LINES BEFORE CUTTING
After you have SAVEd the basic draft, delete the Drafting Lines by SELECTing draft delete. You will see the screen flash and blink a lot and when it finally stops all that will be left is the pattern, the drawing page frame lines and the marked points. AS a fail-safe, SAVE the version of the pattern with the drafting lines DELETEd as a different version of the file (Example: sew1b.dwg). This way you will always have the original file with the Drafting Lines if you should need them.
4. CUT(TING) (SLASHING) A PATTERN PIECE
To "slash" a pattern for spreading, rotating darts or turning darts into seams, first draw a line through the pattern where you want to cut it. A CUT LINE must be a continuous line that touches a CLOSED pattern seam line in two places. The CUT command will not work if the CUT LINE extends out side the pattern. (If you find yourself in this case, TRIM the tails OFF.)
