Cross-Stitch Designer Shareware Version 2.1 Copyright 1993 By HobbyWare All Rights Reserved 5/9/93 Cross-Stitch Designer is a Windows 3.1 program that allows you to design Cross-Stitch patterns. A pattern is drawn with the mouse by placing stitches on a pattern displayed on the screen. The types of stitches supported include full, half, quarter, and outline stitches. The colors of these stitches can be selected from the DMC thread list or from a list of custom thread colors that you provide. A pattern can be printed at any time in either the stitch mode or a symbolic mode where symbols are used to represent the various thread colors. To use Cross-Stitch Designer, you will need a mouse, a VGA graphics adapter, and a printer. In addition to the basic 16-color VGA adapter mode, this program supports the 256 color mode. This mode allows pure colors to be displayed instead of the dithered colors produced with the 16 color mode. Obviously, for a program such as Cross-Stitch Designer, thread color representation is very important. Thus, to get the most from this program, it is recommended that an adapter that supports the 256 color mode be used.

Revised pattern information print-out to only list threads used in the pattern. 8. Added more DMC thread definitions for a current total of 230 colors. ______________________________________________________________ DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY THIS SOFTWARE AND MANUAL ARE SOLD "AS IS" AND WITHOUT WARRANTIES AS TO PERFORMANCE OF MERCHANTABILITY OR ANY OTHER WARRANTIES WHETHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.

P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can actually try before you buy.

With shareware, you can receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then you pay a modest registration fee to the author. For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public domain software to its customers and members. Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category. Our library of shareware contains over 3500 titles divided into 120 logical categories. Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we insist upon and you expect. As a result, our library doesn't contain every shareware program available, just those that really work. PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM, publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do. Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore. In conjunction with PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.
