Here are a few cool developments relating to the VisualWRAP Software:

1. Standard Pattern Library Index Pages
The standard pattern library available for free download on the threadcentral website now has its own index. This is a PDF file which lists each of the patterns in the library with an accompanying image. This makes browsing and selecting patterns much easier. Scroll through the index until you find a pattern that catches your eye (or the eye of your customer) and the index indicates the name of the script to use.
Here is the link to the general download page:
And here is the direct link to the PDF:

2. Extended Madeira spool library
The downloads page now has an extended spool library for the Madeira threads. Thanks to Steve Gilder for this enhancement.

3. Vizwrap on a MAC
You can run vizwrap on a MAC using an emulator. Full-blown emulators can be expensive but CrossOver is a relatively affordable option, allowing you to run vizwrap on a MAC. Thanks to Tommy Fucini for advising of this option. See the FAQs page for more info:

Tight Wraps!
