Pattern Editing Tool


Obsolète depuis la version 4.0: The pattern editing tool has been removed in 4.0, currently there's no way to edit pattern fills for vectors.

The Pattern editing tool works on Vector Shapes that use a Pattern fill. On these shapes, the Pattern Editing Tool allows you to change the size, ratio and origin of a pattern.

On Canvas-editing

You can change the origin by click dragging the upper node, this is only possible in Tiled mode.

You can change the size and ratio by click-dragging the lower node. There's no way to constrain the ratio in on-canvas editing, this is only possible in Original and Tiled mode.

Préférences d'outils

There are several tool options with this tool, for fine-tuning:

First there are the Pattern options.

Répéter :

This can be set to:

Originale :

This will only show one, unstretched, copy of the pattern.

Tiled (Default):

This will let the pattern appear tiled in the x and y direction.


This will stretch the Pattern image to the shape.

Reference point:

Pattern origin. This can be set to:

  • En haut à gauche

  • Haut

  • En haut à droite

  • Gauche

  • Centre

  • Droite

  • En bas à gauche

  • Bas

  • Bottom-right.

Reference Point Offset:

For extra tweaking, set in percentages.

X :

Offset in the X coordinate, so horizontally.

Y :

Offset in the Y coordinate, so vertically.

Tile Offset:

The tile offset if the pattern is tiled.

Taille du motif

Fine Tune the resizing of the pattern.

L :

H :

And then there's Patterns, which is a mini pattern docker, and where you can pick the pattern used for the fill.
