I've decided it's time to invest in some design software and this SAL is a good excuse! I've been thinking about Pattern Maker Pro which I've read is liked by many stitchers. Maybe some of you have used it or have another recommendation? I want to make sure I can scan in patterns that I own, then cut and paste portions of the designs into a new plan for my neighborhood. Does it scan them in exactly as they are printed? I know that with photographs, the scans may be interpreted somewhat different as the software has to convert it a graphical format, but I'm not really interested in working with photographs, just patterns. Also, does the softare just use DMC/Anchor colors? So if you want to do silks, you have to do your own conversions from DMC?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
