    Does the new pattern arrange feature in the latest Clo release orient the pattern pieces according to the grain line. I assume you can put a grain line on a pattern piece.

    Hi, yes, when you click Reset to Default Arrangement, it reflects the grainline.
    To set the grainline of a pattern, please use the Edit Texture tool.

    Hi there, is it possible to change the size of my pattern print layout all together? It is set to a default of 1117.6 mm fabric width. How do I reduce that number to my desired custom width?
