DG16 : Create Boundary (Creator level and higher)

 

The Create Boundary dialogue allows you to add a boundary around a selected artwork or embroidery segment.  The boundary that is created will follow the outline of the selection and will be offset outwards; offset distance can be changed in the Boundary Distance.  The boundary can be generated  as an artwork path or as embroidery - a run, steil or cross-stitch segment. 

 

To use the Create Boundary tool:

 

  1. Select an artwork embroidery segment
