Pattern Maker 7 is UP! –no patterns yet. 2

Tara, from the Pattern Maker 7 support team sent me a dll file to insert into my program files. It worked directly with Windows, activated my registration, and a pop-up says~

The Clock is running! You have 31 days left in your free Deluxe Demo access. Is what you’re doing right now really more fun or important?! Life is short! 

Okay, not really. 😉  But I can now store measurements and do lots not available in the basic view. What do the rest of you think? Anybody use any other programs to compare? What level access/expertise do you use and why? I’m a hobbyist, hard to justify spending but nice to have tools that work.

I am playing with Pattern Maker 7, altered the basic pants pattern to see how well it works.
Printing snafus– all pages print, but only a couple out of 36 include pattern lines. All printed column, row and match point markers – geez, 34 basically blank pages. I’ll have find the print preview option to stop wasting paper! I wonder just how much comes with the free basic download. Somewhere between free and $2,500 I’ll find my sweet spot.

I ordered Butterick 4254 that somebody in our 1912 group recommended. That BMV patttern club helps cut cost. Butterick, MacCalls, Vogue and some others. Wish they carried Burda.
