HELPING you EVEN WEAVIN

EVEN WEAVING
LETS BEGIN
Work out how big you want your card
and what sort of hole you want for your weaving

Place it where you want the first one to be .
AFTER it is places copy it
paste it then and it will end up in the same place over the top
of the one you copied

After pasting it you then use the arrow keys on your keyboard
and push the down arrow key counting how many times you push it
(I did 4 pushes)
then copy that one and paste

Pushing the down arrow the same amount of times you
did for the other one . Your spaces are even .
NOW copy and paste that one then push down arrow button
the same amount of times and then copy .......................


NOTE you need even amount of wholes THIS ONE IS WRONG
i need one more or to take
one off
and then you just take one off and adjust the card rectangle to make it even


This is what it will look like (PRETEND that one of the slits has been taken off though )
needs to be even amount of slits for weaving

Now you know how to get the even you can add anything like little dots and things
to the cards just by using copy paste and arrow keys .
Would love to see your creations with this

I know this was posted 2 years ago, so i'm sure by now, Kay has figured out the "easier" way... But I figured I'd pass it along here for anyone just learning... Just paste a bunch of boxes in a row, then hold "ctrl" and "shift" and "a". This brings up the Alignment Menu. Just select all your shapes, then click "Distribute vertically to centers" and it spaces them all out...
