Our fair-use rules are very favorable to you. We encourage you to use PatternMaker to make patterns for sale, and we believe that what’s yours is yours. Here are the details:
1. Dual-boot or virtual machine: Some of our customers use PatternMaker on a Mac with BootCamp or with a Windows emulator such as Virtual PC or Parallels. The program reportedly runs fine, although it may be sluggish on computers more than five years old. Both of these options require installation of a copy of Windows.
PatternMaker prints to any Windows printing device just like any other Windows program. If you have a large plotter, PatternMaker can print an entire pattern on one large sheet of paper.
If you're using a desktop printer with letter-size paper, PatternMaker divides the pattern into a grid of pages, labeling each one for location and adding registration (alignment) marks in the corners.
PatternMaker prints to any Windows printing device. To print full-size patterns for cutting, you must either print large pages or piece multi-page patterns togther. Suggestions:
