Design Transfer Children

This Release introduces the ability to Design Transfer Automatic Children from frame to frame, or Optional Children from Image to Image.

Overview:

A new Design Transfer Utility has been added - Children. This can be found below the 'Convert Image' button on the 'Tools' tab, or under 'Miscellaneous' on the character mode Design Transfer menu. When selected, you will see the following screen:

You must first identify the Process Type, Process Name and Frame Seq No you wish to transfer from. You then have 4 possibilities for the remaining fields:

  • Leave everything blank. This tells the utility that you want to transfer all Automatic Children from the specified Frame.
  • Enter the 'Auto Child Seq' number. This tells the utility that you want to transfer that specific Automatic Child.
  • Enter an 'Alternate Image No', but leave 'Option No' blank. This tells the utility that you want to transfer all Optional Children from the specified Image.
  • Enter an 'Alternate Image No' and an 'Option No'. This tells the utility that you want to transfer that specific Optional Child.
In the 'Transfer To' section, you identify the target of the design transfer. It can be the same or a different process. You must at least supply the Process Type, Name and Frame Seq No.

  • If you are transferring all Automatic Children, they will be copied to the specified Frame (you must chose a different process or frame in this case).
  • If you are transferring a specific Automatic Child, the 'Auto Child Seq' is optional. If not provided, it will use the same number as the source, otherwise it will be transferred to the specified seq no.
  • If you are transferring all Optional Children, they will be copied to the specified Image (you must choose a different process or frame in this case).
  • If you are transferring one Optional Child, the 'Option No' field is optional. If not provided, it will use the same number as the source, otherwise it will be transferred to the specified Option No.
You cannot supply both an 'Alternate Image/Option No' and 'Auto Child Seq', you can only transfer either Optional Children or Automatic Children, not both at the same time. And you cannot mix Automatic and Optional children on a transfer.
