    Default Drawing Rosette Patterns

    I am very new to Xtreme (since yesterday) and am trying to learn it. I am trying to do line drawings of rosettes for chip carving patterns. I manually drew a circulral template of degree lines to use as a template when drawing these rosettes. I imported this into Xtreme as a bmp. My big problem with this is I have not found a way to lock this template down and it moves and gets out of proper position constantly. Can this be done?
    I searched the web for months to find a program that I could use to draw this type patterns and thought I had found one but I am really having trouble learning to use it this morning. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Scroll down and look at the Curve Generation utility. Would this help?

    Faeb,

    To avoid moving the bitmap pattern, put it in a layer behind you vector drawing.
    You can set a layer to be visible but "fixed" so you cannot grab objects.

    There are many tutorials and workbooks that you can read through at Gary's web site, The Xaraxone.
    I would look through the workbooks.
    http://www.xaraxone.com/html/workbook_index.html#L

    Sounds like you need to put your template on a layer and lock it so that it does not move around, Then you can draw your designs on a new layer on top of it.

    Thanks to all who helped me with the layering. It works wonderful.
    Also, I appreciate all the leads to places where I can find tutor etc.
    There is so many out there. If only I knew what to look for... I am good at
    having problems with no name. :-(
    I have another question that I have searched for and can not find out how it should be done and I am hoping someone will come to my rescue... :-) It is probably so very simple for most of you but I am at my wits end trying to find out how to do this....
    Problem.... How do I draw a square outline, put 4 little wedge shapes inside and seal them to make this all one object that I can copy/paste in several places on my project? I hope this is clearer than mud.
    Any and all help is appreciated.

    Hi Faye,

    Like all things Xtreme there are normally numerous ways of creating the same end result. So here's another alternative to Steve's method.
