Garment Designer is easy to use and powerful. Yet, strange things can occasionally happen as you work. Where did my sleeve go? Why is the left side different than the right, etc. Rest assured, there is a logical reason why. So, if you are not a ‘manual’ reader, or simply want to cut to the chase, let us show you the most common mistakes people make and explain the why. Having this knowledge tucked into your belt will give you comfort to do more. Susan is pulling form her tech support files as well as her design experience for this webinar.
