Seam Allowance Notches

Hello :-)

How can I automatically add seam allowance notches when I am defining the seams on a piece?

I do not see that option in the "Advanced/Define Seams" function.

Thank you!

    There is no specific option in Seams functions to add notches; they should update on the seam lines automatically. Check your seam properties and be sure Auto Update Seams is checked.  You may have noticed that some other functions like folding darts have a checkbox option  in the User Input dialog box to  "add notches" but generally speaking, the function to Define Seams will automatically add notches to the sew lines if notches already exist on the cut or perimeter lines. If you need to add notches after seams are defined, swap the sew and cut lines and add the notch to the perimeter line and update the seams.

    Other way for seam allowance notches is apply any corner. There is some options for both line, first line... perpendicular or extension direction
