I have been watching on line videos about digitizing and had issues trying to work with nodes. This series showed exactly what menu options I need to use with Hatch and simplified many of the things that are actually harder to do in other software! The discussion feature is good. I have been able to go back and see what other people asked and find more answers. I also posted because in other software, you have to remove overlap that it looks like Hatch is smart enough to do on its own. Nice to be able to get confirmation or correction prior to stitching out design. The how to series are all very well done. Thank you Hatch! Instead of struggling as a newbie, I am actually able to have fun and create designs right away. This has been a great stress reliever for me! You Rock!
