Update 1.11.0 available for the Knitting Chart Editor

An update for the Knitting Chart Editor is now available. To install this update;- 

  1. Start up the Knitting Chart Editor.
  2. Select Tools > Install updates from the main menu.
  3. The software checks for available updates and shows a dialog box listing the available updates. Select version 1.11.0 and follow the prompts.
  4. When prompted about certificates, select the Eclipse certificate and reply ok. All of the software code is ‘digitally signed’ to show that the software has not been tampered with. The certificates are either from The Eclipse Foundation (www.eclipse.org) or Cathy Scott of StitchMastery (www.stitchmastery.com).There may be a warning that there is an unsigned feature called com.stitchmastery.chartEditor.feature. This warning is nothing to worry about and can be safely ignored as all of the contents of the feature have been signed. The StitchMastery Knitting Chart Editor is composed of a collection of ‘plug-ins’. A ‘feature’ is a subset of those plugins. The feature mentioned is the set of all plugins that contain code specific to the Knitting Chart Editor. All of the plugins in the software, including those in the com.stitchmastery.chartEditor.feature have been ‘digitally signed’ so that you can be sure that they contain authentic code that has not been tampered with since signing.To verify the signatures of the installed code;-
    1. Select Tools > About Knitting Chart Editor from the main menu. The ‘About Knitting Chart Editor dialog’ opens.
    2. Select ‘Installation Details’. The ‘Knitting Chart Editor Installation Details dialog’ opens.
    3. Select the Plug-ins tab.
    4. Select ‘Show Signing Info’.
  5. When prompted be sure to agree to the restart of the software so that the new update is incorporated properly.

Update 1.11.0 fixed the following bugs / added the following features;-

  • Made it easier to remove and place repeats. Previously these commands were only enabled when stitches were selected. Now if one or more rows or charts are selected, the command applies to all of the stitches / repeats in the selected row(s) or chart(s). If nothing is selected, then the selection applies to all of the stitches / repeats in all of the charts.
  • Added a preference to disable the inclusion of repeats when copying a group of stitches. By default, repeats are always included in a repeat if all the stitches inside a repeat are selected. There are occasions when it is desirable to copy the stitches but to not include the repeats. An example would be when there is a stitch pattern inside a repeat that needs to be copied and adapted for a side panel where three is no repeat. The preference setting can be found in Preferences and is labelled ‘Do not copy repeats when copying stitches’.
  • The maximum number of columns that a wide stitch can use has been increased from 20 to 50. If you have  a need to chart a stitch that takes up more than 50 columns, please let me know, but hopefully that maximum limit should now suffice!
