5 - Choose the resizing mode: with or without density adjustment. If you decide to resize with density adjustment, you can specify whether you want to keep the original fill pattern for filled areas, or whether these areas will be re-filled with a new pattern. You can specify also the density of column stitches and density of fill stitches (Picture No. 3). The bigger number you type into the density boxes, the lower density you obtain. In fact, this number is distance between stitches in tenths of millimeters (value 4 means 0.4 mm). The fill stitches pattern is used for filled areas (this setting is available only in case you switch off the "Keep original fill pattern" option). The default setting for pattern is "Fill 1", the examples of all patterns can be seen after clicking "Example" button. If you choose the "None" pattern, the fill areas will become columns.
