1.  I needed to raise the armhole 1/2" in the dress that I'm making, so I used the "Raise Armhole" tool.  By trial and error, I learned that I had to set it at -1.25 to raise the armhole 1/2".  How does a 0.25 setting translate to inches? 

(I wasn't quite sure how to phrase that question.  I hope that it made sense to you.

2.  Is there anyway to rotate bust darts into pleats, and then true those pleats in Pattern Editor?   

 

Just FYI:  The "Enter" key is making the text jump around strangely on the forums.   I also noticed it doing this the last time that I posted a message.  Sometimes it acts right, and then other times it double spaces and shifts the text down quite a bit.

 Thanks!

You may have another setting affecting this. Just tested in dresses and minus .5 raised the armhole .5 inch. You can send me your database and the name of the saved style and I can check.

Some darts have a pleat option.

Other darts you would need to rotate, mark as pleats and use the true pleat tool.

No problem with forum posts jumping.  I am posting from a iPad and use the submit.
