Having recently acquired a Kniterate machine I'd be interested to connect with anyone else who has a machine.
I am having a lot of difficulties with the software, which is VERY buggy, and would like to know if other people are having similar issues, and if anyone has found any workarounds.
Some of the more common problems -
Loss of the stitch sizes during editing designs, or after closing them and re-opening. They revert to the default 4. And YES I have saved before closing! In fact I am so worried about losing stuff that I save quite often.
Finding that when copying and pasting part of a design, the parameters I have edited in the side panel are, more often than not, lost and revert to the defaults.
Unable to use the bind off part of the app as it starts from needle 1 instead of from the needle my design begins on. And I have tried editing it but there are always "phantom" stitches that remain and give me error messages. I have spent hours trying to correct the design to make it work but have not succeeded.
Error messages that I do not understand eg "Got 6, max is 5". I have no idea what this refers to so had to abandon a design I'd spent all afternoon on.
Having to exit and re-open a design in order to see which stitch an error message refers to.
I need to open a new tab each time I open a new design, or the designs overwrite each other.
I am tearing my hair out. After 3 weeks I still have not managed to create a single perfect swatch, as I am not even able to bind off! So no hope of being able to knit anything useable any time soon..... And with all the bugs, creating even the simplest swatch in the design app can take ages.
I'm not quite sure what happened to all of the people who were posting on the old forum, as I can't seem to get into that any more, and no-one seems to be using this new platform. Which leaves me feeling very alone!
Sorry to sound so whiny, but I feel like I'm going nowhere, backwards. :-(
Can anyone help? I have the impression there is a Beta version of the app being trialed, as I have seen stuff knitted online that isn't possible in the public app. But as I can't get into the old forum, I don't know what is on the software timeline.
