    I use the trace feature a lot. I crop quilt pictures to show only one section or block and import that part. It's easy to trace and then convert it to easy draw, a window pop opens asking if I want to convert and I click yes. I don't understand why you would want to trace a block from the EQ library. It's already there. Open it and edit or redraw how you want. I learn something new every time I use EQ7.
    Got fabric?

    I don't generally use the tracing either for a block already in EQ but when Rhonda asked the question, of course I had to go check it out. Played around and my post above is how I did it. Worked for me. When I edit it, the block goes to Easy Draw which is what I click on when creating a new block. I have copied images using the Snipping Tool from WORD, saving to a picture file, then importing it into EQ and creating blocks and quilts from that. One of the few things I have figured out how to do without reading the manuals.

    I tried before I asked for hep but it just didn't make sense to me. I still think it is like going round robin hood barn as my mom says to have to save the pic from the library to your pc and then import it back in when I already have it in my sketchbook. I would think you could upload it from the sketchbook but apparently not. But what do I know??? LOL

    I wanted to use a simple picture and didn't have anything in my files to use. So went looking for one in the library. I dont' have time to try it now but will mess with it later on.

    I appreciate all the help!
