Pattern Editing Tool


버전 4.0부터 폐지됨: 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.

도구 옵션

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

First there are the Pattern options.


This can be set to:


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:

  • 왼쪽 위

  • Top

  • 오른쪽 위

  • Left

  • Center

  • Right

  • 왼쪽 아래

  • Bottom

  • Bottom-right.

Reference Point Offset:

For extra tweaking, set in percentages.


Offset in the X coordinate, so horizontally.


Offset in the Y coordinate, so vertically.

Tile Offset:

The tile offset if the pattern is tiled.

Pattern Size:

Fine Tune the resizing of the pattern.


The width, in pixels.


The height, in pixels.

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