When working with tile or linear product with a pattern you can use the Pattern Start tool. This allows you to have a measure of control over material usage and waste. This tool is especially handy in commercial projects when a patterned material may be spread across multiple rooms.
The current selection will be highlighted and will appear next to the pattern start icon.
- Select one or more rooms from the project.
- Click on the pattern start tool and select from the list which method you would like.
- Depending on the tool, the cursor will change and you can select a location around the room to base the pattern start on.
- Press the Esc key to change the cursor back to the Select tool.
