In the knit module, choose the appropriate stitch and row gauge, and make sure the view mode is set to shaded. Then, click on the converter tab. Select the artwork you want to convert, click preview, and then click convert. If you notice too much detail is missing in the preview level, you can enlarge the artwork or lower the stitch and row gauge. If you're using raster artwork, you may need to image trace the art before converting to avoid a very multicolored outcome.

When a color is being added to Palette Manager, it may look like it's being added but then does not show up in the list. When this happens, there are a couple of things to check. 1: Make sure in the AI toolbar that the Fill is on top of the Stroke. The Fill may have the correct color in it at the time of adding the color, but if the Stroke is on top, it will try to add that color instead. 2: Make sure you have a connection to the server. In most cases, the location that Palette Manager needs to access is on a server. For additional information or support, please email support@AquarioDesign.com

You can recolor raster images using the Aquario Design Raster Recolor tool. This procedure explains how to use the Raster Recolor tool to make a pattern texture version of a color palette and implement it into Palette Manager, however the Raster Recolor tool can be used with any raster images and colors. To Use Raster Recolor:
  1. Open up the desired pattern swatch in an Illustrator file. You can copy and paste the pattern from another file or place it into the Illustrator document. If it is placed in the document make sure to embed the pattern.
  2. Go to Window>DesignPro>Design Bar to open the DesignBar if it's not open already.
  3. Click the Camera icon on the Design Bar to expand it and show the Raster Recolor Button that will be used.
  4. Push the desired color palette into the Swatches window so that the colors will be available in the file. If the palette was made with the Palette Manager tool, use the Palette Utility tool to push the selected color palette into the swatches.
  5. Use the Selection tool to select the pattern image in the document.
  6. With the image selected, hold down the Control key (PC) or the Command key (Mac) on the keyboard and select the colors that you want to recolor the image with in the Illustrator Swatches window.
  7. Click the Raster Recolor button (Paintbrush) on the Design Bar.
  8. Click OK to the prompt.
  9. A pattern swatch of the image tonally recolored in each selected color will now be added into the Illustrator Swatches window.
Once you have recolored the pattern image and a colorized version with each color from your palette, you can add the pattern swatches into a palette in Palette Manager. If you'd like to save the palette in Illustrator, delete out any unused colors from the Swatches window aside from the desired pattern swatches, and then click the Swatches options>Save Swatch Library as AI For additional information or support, please email support@AquarioDesign.com

RS converts all colors to RGB mode. If your AI color palette was created in CMYK mode, you'll notice the colors change once you bring them into RS. Best practice is to always work with color in RGB mode to avoid any issues later on. For more information or support, please contact contact@aquariodesign.com
