Open & Closing Pleats

pnuevapnueva Posts: 1
Are we still able to open & close pleats, once other alterations are made to the pattern?  for instance, i added pleats to a front pant, then split the waist seam to create a waistband.  Once the line was changed, I could not go back and close the pleats.

    Hello @pnueva
    When pleat objects are created, you can open/close, edit, and delete them. Once you do something to modify the object outside of its own functionality -- such as splitting part of it away -- the pleat will no longer act as an object and you will be left with whatever notches and internal lines remain from the pleat. Recommendation: split off the waistband and make other adjustments before creating the pleat, if possible.

    That should be a cool enhance request: keep pleats, fulnes, maybe, darts on spliten parts.
