development continues at ScotWeave with the following list being just
a brief selection of new features recently added to the software.
New visual file browsing and yarn
selection options makes it easier and quicker to locate and select
your files. A new colourways layout option for printing gives
you more control of how your colourways are laid out on the printed
page. A new variable warp density option gives the user an
alternative to the standard denting (sleying) method for spacing
the warp ends. Fringing can now be applied separately to
the warp and/or to the weft.
response to user requests we have also added variable yarn chip
sizes on printouts, the option to include the library codes
on the yarn chips, and improved printing of dobby weaves
with several weaves per page.
Jacquard Designer also benefits from most of those options list
above for dobby, and now includes a new "loomcard-like"
method for entering weft density and regulator sequences. A new
option to enter weaving speed has also been added.
allows finish effects to be applied to some and not other
sections of the design (based upon the colours in the artwork).
number of layers in a base weave has been increased to 16.
An Auto-generate option has also been added to automatically
generate all of the layer combinations for a base weave and save
these with different names.
Automatic support for electronic loom functions on Somet
looms has been added (this could previously done manually).
Variable yarn chip sizes on printouts has been added to this
program. A new mode of operation which ties the print library
PCR values to the screen HSV values has been added so that changing
the screen colour will automatically change the printer colour.
The Drape program has received major attention and now has an easier
to use "drag and drop" interface as well as a facelift
for the major dialogs. You can also scan directly into the
program now, as well as importing images from other software. The
manual has been rewritten to reflect these changes.
