Job Properties - Step and Repeat Tab

(see also: Job Properties Overview)

Use the Step and Repeat tool to create textile patterns by repeating jobs over the selected area with certain drop styles and/or mirroring. This feature leaves no space between copies of the image so that a seamless pattern can be created. The original design will need to be designed so that all edges match up if you want a repeating pattern.
