Latest upgrade bug?

Pattern Genius is by far my favorite knitting app. However since the latest upgrade I am having a problem. I cannot color or change the color of the stitches. The chart takes a long time to save to the app and there is an error message that says the chart is unable to sync. Charts do not sync between the app on my iPad and the app on my phone.

I hope this can be fixed.

A Must Have App

Love and appreciate the NEW (1.5.3) app capabilities, thank you for all the hard work!!! Huge leap forward, in capabilities and speed enhancements.

Had an opportunity to use new app to duplicate and alter a rather large chart originally created in the old app. WOW, what a huge improvement! On top of all the listed upgrade features, everything runs and redraws so much faster now. Use this app on an iPad Pro 10.5, iPad Mini 4 and iPhone X. No crashes, not even when tapping the back/undo icon.

Adore both apps (PG and NG-KC). Very thankful they both exist!! Learned to knit using these apps, don’t think i’d have had the patience or fortitude to learn otherwise.

Yay! I'm so glad to hear the update is working well for you and you are enjoying the new features.

I have been using PG for years and love it. Being a chart person this gives me the ability to build my own that I can then pop into knitCompanion. The recent improvements are icing on the cake, the tools are so awesome and real time savers. I have designed charts for my own designs also which is very satisfactory. I say often that working in PG is better than “Prozac” for me, Zen time.😻

I'm so glad you have been enjoying PG, and the new update!
