Premier Stitch Markup app for all PDF charts, pictures & photos of paper charts

Welcome to Markup R-XP, the premier app for marking up any stitch chart.

The Only Choice for Marking Up with iOS Devices

Markup R-XP does everything other markup apps do and a whole lot more! Why not switch to Markup R-XP and see what it can do for you – you won’t be disappointed.
No need to check for “Supported Designers” as Markup R-XP loads all charts from all designers. Markup R-XP is recommended and approved by many leading chart designers and producers making it far and away the leading markup app available

Markup Made Simple

Markup R-XP allows stitchers to load any chart in PDF or image form and will magically locate the grids, symbols and colours and then allow them to be marked up on screen. You can even take a photo of a chart and Markup R-XP will find the grid and symbols and allow you to mark it up.
If your chart consists of multiple pages, Markup R-XP will stitch the pages together to make one large chart. This means you can easily see your full markup progress and won’t be held up at page edges.
There are even tools to let you quickly find those final few unmarked symbols across the whole chart.

Extra Help with Tricky Charts

If you have a chart picture which is not completely clear or slightly rotated, you can still use Markup R-XP. The integrated editing tools can be used to assist Markup R-XP to create the perfect grid to fit over your chart and then detect the symbols and colours for you.

Automatic Symbol & Thread Colour Detection

Markup R-XP recognises the symbols in your chart and can tell you how many are stitched and left to stitch. If you chart has a key, Markup R-XP can also automatically determine the thread colour for each symbol. If there is no key, no problem, you can also simply assign up to four thread colours to a symbol.

Built In Shade Cards

Markup your chart using thread colours from DMC, Anchor and Madeira selected from the built-in shade cards.

Keys, Finished Samples and Notes

Multiple Keys can be captured separately and are stored alongside each project for easy referral as you stitch. Likewise, pictures can be captured from your uploaded chart for quick reference whilst markup is underway. There is even a notes section to keep a track of any important details for each project.

Comprehensive Progress & Statistics

Projects can be organised into different categories to help track the progress of your stitching. Markup R-XP can also estimate the number of stitches in your chart and keep you updated on progress.

Markup Your Way

Markup R-XP allows you to customize the way Markup R-XP works and looks. Options include grid settings, centre lines, diagonal grid lines, colours, sizes and much more.

Huge Time Saver

I’ve completed several cross stitch projects in the past, with the largest taking me around 500 hours. With my experience, I thought it would be fun to tackle a much larger project (40” x 20”…approximately 200,000 stitches).
I started this project without knowing anything about markup apps. But after the first couple hundred hours on this project, I realized I would need something to save me time. I spent a few days searching apps and trying a few. Once I found this app, and used it for several days…. I knew this was the app for me.
As a programmer myself, I have a very high standard and this app met my every need plus more.
There is a one time cost, however, I would be happy to pay this price yearly as it will save me a significant amount of time.
Note: This is the first app I have ever commented on…. And was compelled to write the review because (again) it’s a huge time saver.

Game Changing

I’m new to cross stitching and have only recently started using digital patterns now that I’m doing projects that aren’t kits. I heard about pattern keeper, but realized there was no IOS version, not to mention I’ve heard it can be a little wonky with indie patterns. I downloaded this app to try it out with a pattern I purchased on etsy, and not only did it upload with no issue, the app itself has been very intuitive and easy to use. Also it’s free??? I haven’t hit any paywalls for anything, but honestly if they come up this app is worth it. And if a paywall doesn’t come up then this is seriously one of the best free resources I have ever used.

Edit: So I did learn it starts with a free trial and then it’s like $20 a year which is a very worthy subscription if you ask me. Immediately purchased before the trial was even over lol.

1000% recommend!

Love this app! I have only been stitching just over a year and this made learning a million times easier. I can easily mark off as I go, keep track of my stitches and how long projects are taking me to make. I’ll never use a paper pattern again! Customer service is excellent and very responsive and immediate, they fixed an issue I had within minutes of submitting. Also very open to suggestions from us stitchers to help improve our experience. Hopefully we can upload multiple pdf files and photos at the same time soon, many designers seem to still keep everything separate for downloads. I use this app every single day on my iPad, definitely worth the yearly fee, thank you Markup R XP!
