Hello,
I'm wondering if anybody can tell me where my shapes keep disappearing to? I've made quite a few but when I am designing a template and want to use one of my shapes they aren't all there, only the very newest ones. They are all in my profile and I can look at them there, but is there a way I can still use them from there or get them back into my seamless template maker? It's very frustrating to go to use my shapes and all my early ones aren't there anymore, why?

enaid

I forgot how to choose another person's work as a favorite. Can someone please help me with that? Thank you.

Hey Enaid!
In the right column, look down until you see bold text that says "Favorited By".
Right below that, there is a "Fave this Pattern" button. :)

Hello, hope you can help me..
When I create a shape, sometimes the pieces of my shape are saved all together and sometimes some pieces of my shape saved separately, it is so frustrating,
Why this happens??
Here is a link of one of my shapes so you can have a clue of what I am talking about:

Hope you can help me, I will really appreciate it ♥

Thank you in advanced ♥

Hi, does anyone know how you put a border on a badge or whatever-you-call-it like this:

ycc2106,

HI! I have a question about this link, "busted for a pic". I've been adding photos to PHOTOCOPA by pasting the URL for the image where it says "enter the URL for any photo" under the Photos tab. When the palette is created, it shows the image as being hosted by colour lovers. Is this hotlinking or copyright infringement? I'm concerned.

Thanks for all the info and helpfulness!

Here's an example of one I've created:

Hello, littleram29. If you look at the comment above you, you will see a beginner's guide link. Check that out and it could be quite useful. As far as welcoming you, most of us do that, on your profile. :) If you need help, this group is definitely helpful for all, even those who have been here for a while. Take care!

I just checked it out. Not too bad of a tutorial! Too bad there weren't more of those, on there. Not just for plaid, but in general. Thank you for uploading and creating it. :)

Hi everyone. I wonder if someone can tell me how to upload a template and make only the "main square" visible. I've seen it nicely done in all the others templates but I can't figure out how to do it in SS, my templates show either two "squares" on the template's page and an ugly border around it on the "color this pattern" page... doesn't look nice. thank you!
