9> When I add or change fabric in a quilt the screen refreshes constantly. Why?
Have you scanned in your own fabrics? What you describe usually happens when the file size of the fabric image is too large. It sounds as though you may have scanned in very large a piece of fabric and/or the DPI setting is too high. Here are the setting you should use when scanning:
Choose a fabric print that is small to medium in size.
Scan a swatch that is approximately 4" X 4" in size.
Select only the fabric for your scan. (see See #8 above)
Scan the fabric as a 24 bit True Color, using 100 dpi and file size should be 100-200K. Save the file as a bitmap.
