    Default Conference Thumb Drive Patterns


    0 Not allowed!
    At the conference we were all given a thumb drive with patterns shown there. There are also several sign
    shapes that I'm not sure how to use. After getting click happy as my son calls it,
    they ended up in my favorites folder in my patterns and they don't move to my virtual board. Can anyone
    tell me how to use these. Thanks.

    Hi Mark,

    Just open any sign shape mpc. You will see several on one board. Start a New project, then copy/paste your choice of sign shape from the previous mpc into your New project. Then layout your new project (resize, add lettering, carve regions, ptn's...whatever) and save the project as a new mpc for tooling.

    I hope that helps.

    Thanks Michael, I take it they should be deleted from my pattern library then? They don't open as a ptn but show up in the library as "sign shapes". Thanks again.

    Hi Mark,

    I'm not sure how the sign shape mpc's got into your pattern library (I didn't know that was possible to have mpc's in the library).

    There are nine patterns on the USB stick that are not related to the signs, and those would show up in the pattern library in a directory called "2012 Discover Conference Collection". I can see how those would be there, but not understanding how the sign shape mpc's could have ended up there.

    The sign MPC's would just be stored elsewhere on your computer hard drive, then opened like any other MPC. So, if you really have the mpc's in the library, I guess it would be ok to delete them from the library.

    Sorry, I may not be of much help on this.

    Hi Michael,

    I probably wasn't clear when I said the actual shapes were in my library. It was just the titles "Sign Shapes 1" etc. Figured out how they got there too. As I said in my first post, I got click happy and when the mpc was displayed in designer, I must have hit the Extract Patterns icon and in they went or at least the name anyway. Thanks again for your help.

    Mark
