    Question Software for Creating Pantographs

    Is there any software on the market for creating pantographs? I found QuiltCAD - but the demo I downloaded is not impressing me. It seems hard to understand, clunky to use, with a poorly designed user interface. Maybe I need to play with it more, but so far I'm not impressed enough to spend over $100 on it.

    Is there anything else out there? Anyone have suggestions for me? I'd love to design my own pantographs. Did one by hand, but it would be nice to have a program which would ensure the repeats were exact copies, and that the pattern was symmetrical (when necessary).

    Well...it's more than $100 - no paper required. (I really don't think this is what you were looking for, but it's an interesting concept.)

    I think it's about $800 without the tablet.

    Pantovision does not really let you create pantographs, except from a limited set of designs. Most people who buy it also buy digitized designs online, or learn to create their own using various programs. Some people create pantographs with Photoshop Elements, or any drawing software. Carla Barrett has some interesting classes - http://featheredfibers.wordpress.com/classes/courses/
