I started this post around 9:30 this morning to share my jumping-up-and-down-clapping-happiness. Now it’s noon, and more like sharing frustration/despair/resignation.
For those of you who’ve been following the “saga” of the new computer, I found the install disks for my photo program and scanning software and they work! Best of all, I found my adobe acrobat code! 🙂 YAY! That means I can once again (in theory) make you wonderful .pdfs! Apparently it’s a good idea to register your software, because we did that when we originally bought it and were then able to access our code on the adobe website! Hooray!
Or not hooray. Because prior to the installation of adobe, images (e.g. pattern pieces) all pasted just fine from my graphics program into word and now all of a sudden they paste as a blurry mess with incorrect fonts. (Yes, I did uninstall the Acrobat/Word add-on and restart with no luck) After wasting more time than I want to remember searching various forums for help and trying different approaches, I think I’ve got a solution that works, although what used to be a quick copy/paste process has now become a labor-intensive annoyance of saving each image separately as a .png, remembering to set the appropriate resolution for each one of course, then hunting it down and importing into word.
Long story short, I’m bringing you
this pattern for today only
because I need feedback! The link [is now gone] because these pants are going to be turned into the same Versatility Pants pattern that’s already available for Maru and AG but I haven’t gotten around to the pocket thing yet. Download/open and print the way you would normally do with my patterns (with no scaling) and if anything looks funny would you please let me know? The page with pattern pieces does look a little blurry with random white lines through it on my screen, but prints out crisply, clearly and perfectly sized. DH said it looks fine on his computer’s screen, so maybe this is just unique to my wonderful new computer…
Thank you and happy sewing! 🙂
Fingers crossed this week’s LAST summer sew-along dress will be appearing on Thursday with maybe a new Wellie Wisher pattern also!
