  • How do I remove the blank beads from a shaped pattern?

    A shaped pattern in BeadTool is called Freeform. Although cells in a pattern will always exist, you can hide them.

    Before you enable Freeform

    If you have extra space on any side of your pattern, it's a good idea to trim it before enabling the Freeform option.

    1. Click Pattern->Trim from the main menu

    Enabling Freeform

    1. Click Pattern->Freeform to toggle showing the blank beads in your pattern.
    2. Click the same menu item again to show the empty cells again
