The Save & Undo process in Patternmaker Pro means that your file is continually updated without hitting the Save button more than one time.

There are times when you might want to save your progress at a particular point in time and not have further updates done. You will use the Save State feature to do this.

Select the Save State option off the File menu. You will be prompted for a Name. The name can be anything you wish, including spaces and symbols.

The program will save the Fashioner patterns in their current state to a new file in My Fashioner Sessions . This file will not be updated with subsequent changes in the Fashioner. It will stay as it was saved and additional work will be saved back to the original file. That file name is in the upper right above the tool bar.

This is a great way to create base patterns for later use.
