    I did it!
    I just changed the color to magenta in the preferences, and it worked.

    Sometimes I just can't see the forest through the trees!

    I am afraid I don't understand the question. The lines of the pattern are printed in red, not the whole page and it is the choice you make, I think, on the last page. I will double check and see.

    Update: I checked and the last page gives you the options of several colors.

    Another option Terry is to scan the pattern to your computer. Put it someplace where you can find it again.
    Here's what I do when I want to print a color to some patterns.
    Open file in Irfanview, click File, click Print, select the printer I want to use, click printer setup, click properties, click effects, click box monochrome effect, select color by moving slide, click OK, click OK again, click Print.
    I realize you may not have the same setup as I do, but if you play around with your parameters you should be able to find you can print your patterns in the color you want. Good luck.
    .....and as I mentioned in my earlier post, a highlighter can be helpful if you don't want to use the printer.

    I use a lot of Steve Goods patterns that come as PDF's

    If I want to change colour I use GIMP (free program)

    Open the PDF and find the page I want and import.

    Use select tool to select area I want. Ie big square on tools page

    Select colors and then colorize. Play with the saturation and hue to get the color you want and then print.

    I hope you can see the results here.

    You could try Rapid Resizer. You can print out the final pattern in any color you like, but I do use red. Great program, use it a lot.

    Terry: Assuming you have a color printer, change the color of the line to red in whatever application you created the pattern in. Alternatively, many color printers allow one or two color printing of b & w docs. These changes can normally be made under "properties" in the print dialog.
