I’ve just started using Valentina so I apologise if this is a daft question - I’ve tried looking for answers, but I’m new to forums in general.
I seem to be getting the hang of it pretty quickly (although I haven’t tackled layouts and printing yet), but I want to know if there is a way to mark things onto your final printed pattern - specifically dart points, but also pleats, foldlines etc.
Most of the tutorials I’ve watched show patterns with gaping holes where the darts should be, but I would prefer my patterns with the “dart allowance” included (sorry, I’m also a self-taught patternmaker so I don’t know the proper terminology. I mean the fabric inside of the dart that gets folded into the seam once it’s sewn). I’ve managed to draw this, but when working on the detail and seam allowance, the dart point (where the dart legs meet) is lost.
I’ve tried a workaround where I treated the dart piece and main pattern piece as separate pieces and tried to use the union tool (don’t laugh), but it was unsuccessful(!)
I’ve included some screenshots to help explain what I’m after. I don’t want the first or second options, I want the third - but with seam allowance. Is this possible?
Again I’m sorry if I’m being stupid, and I’m sorry if I’ve posted this to the wrong place
