How to use Phil’s AutoTiler

Phil Martin's Celebrated Auto-Tiler. Astounding Transformations in Seconds

PhilM, as his monicker goes on TG, seriously busted to invent a seamless tile that is editable; he used the new Live Copy feature in Xara Designer Pro X (v8). So if you bought a copy, definitely download and check out this stunning, user-morphing creation.

Phil’s notes are in the Xara document, but if you want the skinny, you unlock any or all of the bottom three layers, Ctrl+click to select an item in a group, and then modify it—give a QuickShape a different number of sides, scale a shape, recolor another. See the square defined by the guides at center? That’s where a rectangle with no outline and no fill resides. What you do after modifying Phil’s work is select everything on the page, and then press Q to make that invisible square clip eveything else on the page. Make a bitmap copy and then use the bitmap as a seamless tile!
