hello guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I own PC Stitch pro 9 and its used to creat cross stitch patterns, but I want to convert those patterns inot PDF or JPG formats so that i can share them. the PC stitch format saves the patterns into .PAT and not everyone has a program that reads it.

Thank you and Please, all any help is greatly appreciate it so very much.

There's actually an option built-in. Under the File Menu, look for Export.




Save Image gives you the pattern as an image file, Save Legend saves the symbol chart as a document file.



DPI determines size and ease of reading the chart. Just fiddle around and figure out what works best for you. It's pretty easy, promise Smiley And very helpful if you're making patterns on a laptop (like me!) to be printed on a separate computer, heh.

Another option to create pdf files is to install a pdf creator like PrimoPDF.  It will show up as a printer when you go to print but instead of printing out, it will save the document as a pdf file.

I own the same program. My friend just showed me this last night, plus I figured out a couple of things:
First, PC Stitch will  NOT allow you convert any file into PDF or JPG that uses anything from either the font or image libraries.
As long as the design is created exclusively by you, all is well.
You can get around that by printing it with the program open, then scanning the print-outs. They become JPGs. I am not sure what the quality will be, but you can save them in a large-scale print-out, and they may not be the best, but they'll be usable.
Second,  he showed me to save it to the DESKTOP, and put a folder on top to drag them into. We tried it on one I had trouble posting on-line, and it seemed to work, converting a .pat to a JPG.

I'm not yet familiar with creating PDF versions. I'll have to put that on my list for my tutor!
