StitchSketch ver 1.04 now available at iTunes App Store!
StitchSketch - Mozusystems, LLC
Here is the list of changes in ver 1.04. (Some screenshots are below)

I've been working hard to make StitchSketch a useful design tool for craft designer - so hopefully this version is getting closer to that!

NEW features (Major)
  • For designing knitting pattern, knitting Symbols (JIS Amizu Kigou) are now provided
  • Maximum chart size is now increased to 250 x 250
    One important note: Even though you can edit 250 x 250 size, displaying it in zoom out could be very slow (sluggish). Zooming in should be OK.
  • Now support Dropbox to save a chart.
  • Color Charts (palette) are now available for DMC®, DFT, COSMO, Delica, Toho Best, Perler Beads®
  • More options for creating a PDF - a cell size, multiple pages, etc.

NEW features (Minor)
  • "Color Mode" is provided to switch a mode between editing colors and editing symbols.
  • "Rate App" menu item is in config menu - Please rate StitchSketch!
  • "StitchSketch" home page menu item is in a config menu
  • "Canvas Resize" tool
  • "Crop to selection" tool
  • When opening a file from email/URL/cloud, It is going to use the source file name. If it exists on local, it adds numbering.
  • "count/10 cm" unit for a "count per unit" field
  • Displaying rulers on bottom and right (iPad only)
  • Displaying a Center Mark in Edit screen and PDF
  • PDF Generation Options:
    • A cell size auto adjust (fit to one page)
    • Specifying a cell size, which means you can now print a chart in multiple pages
    • Cell drawing option (Fill only, Symbol only, Fill & Symbol)
    • Paper orientation auto select
    • Ruler's numbering ascending/descending option
    • Now it uses chart's file name instead of temporary file name - so saving a PDF to other places, it's much easier to know what file it is.
  • Import: "edit mode" is now can be on/off. By using "off", you can now import entire image. (Before, it was forced to cut square)
  • More gray scale for generic color palette
  • Icons refined and got a little bigger.
  • Color palette performance improved (much smoother)
  • File Open/Gallery
    • Sort by Name/Last Modified
    • Thumbnail now showing correct for non-square image
  • Displaying Finished Size in Chart Information/PDF
  • Symbol "\u2733" deplicated
  • PDF generation and Photo Conversion now using multithreading w/indicator for better UI handling
  • Now using "Arial" font for all symbol display

Bug Fixes:
  • When exporting, a "save" dialog box was shown twice - it's fixed.
  • Horizontal layout issue for iPhone/iPod touch now fixed
    So, now the layout/menu/dialog box's look&feel a little bit changed.
  • Background color was not painted in PDF

Color Charts (Thread's Palette)
Miyuki - Delica
Perler Beads®
Toho Best

Knitting Symbols to create a knitting pattern.
Choose a kitting symbol, and then change the size of the symbol. You can on/off the "Purl" mark.
Some Reference regarding JIS knitting symbols:

Color List page now display palette name and symbol type ("U" for Unicode, "K" for knitting)

Chart Information page now calculate a finished size

"Color Mode" is a tool to switch between "Color" editing mode and "Symbol" editing mode.
In Color Eeiting Mode, you can focus on colors (exiting mode) by choosing color from palettes, while Symbol Editing Mode is for editing symbol pattern like knitting pattern by choosing symbol.

"Rate this app" menu is provided so that you can easily rate StitchSketch.
Also a link to home page is there.

When generating a PDF, you have now more options.

You can save a chart to Dropbox.

You can now sort the list: sort by file name (ascending order) or sort by last edit time-stamp (descending order)

You can now change a canvas size by "Canvas Size" tool or "Crop to selection" tool

Would it be possible to view all colors selected (color list) on the bottom task bar as opposed to selecting color list.

Hi Josi,
Right now, it is not possible.
I have a plan to add a selected color list popup window always shown on the screen, so until then, please wait for a while.

I like this app! I have created my own charts and have added some family drawn charts. With aging eyes, it's great to zoom in on a chart and leave it open while working on a piece. Are there plans to type in a color number ( great for when you want to use floss on hand) and it would be nice to be able to set or change the symbols attached with the color palate to coincide with existing paper charts.

I currently have the above version of your software and wondered if there is an add-in or additional software containing a colour chart for DMC tapestry wools.

Please advise.

Thank you.

I love the program, but cannot find how to print out the color chart required for the chart I created. It tells me what color number is for each symbol, but a print out of the colors I need would be helpful when buying the floss in a store without carrying the iPad with me. How do I print out the color chart?

Is this available for PC? I'm really needing something to combine colors to see what it looks like. I work with Miyuki Delicas.

Is it possible to select few or all colors available for a project? Or do I have to go back to color chart and select colors individually? I am trying to design bracelet (loom beading), and I have a problem with the color chart. It would be easier to have all colors displayed on the right side of the screen.
