Product Highlights: New Roll Goods Features in MeasureSquare 2017

 

As many of you know from firsthand experience, laying out roll goods in large areas can cause issues with seam layout or positioning. To help get the layout your large space needs, the newest version of MeasureSquare now incorporates the Stagger Cut option.

In order to make use of this feature, simply right click on the room with your roll good applied and select Layout and Seam, then select the option, Stagger Cuts, as seen below. This will shift the seams to provide a better layout for those large spaces.
