    This feature allows users to save a pattern as a different file? Can you describe how this works?

  2. Roman Telezhynskyi reporter

    Yes, user will save result as independent file.

    I propose to provide several options:

    • Replace measurements.
    • Replace increments.
    • Replace internal variables.
    • Replace functions.
    • Replace a formula entirely.

    By replace i mean replacing name by value.

    Depend on level of sterilization a user will left some level of parameterization or not.

    Can you provide details about this feature?

    Sterile pattern is just a file that lost part of information. I am talking about rewriting formulas, replacing formulas by values or variables by their names.

    Will the user export to sterile pattern?

    No. It is not export. It is still a .VAL file, but cleaned from part of sensitive information about formulas. The file will lose gradation.

    Will the user open a pattern that is locked in 'sterile mode'?

    You can open a pattern in Valentina as usual.
