Satin Column

Error Message Description
One or more rails crosses itself, and this is not allowed.
Please split into multiple satin columns.
With Node Edit Tool select a node at the position where you want to split your path. Click on Break path at selected nodes within the Tool Controls Bar.

Split Path
Hit Ctrl+Shift+K to seperate all pieces. Recombine selected rails and rungs with Ctrl+K. Then apply param settings to both seperated satin columns.
satin column: One or more of the rungs doesn’t intersect both rails. Make sure rungs intersect both rails.
More information
Each rail should intersect both rungs once. Make sure rungs intersect both rails once.
More information
satin column: One or more of the rungs intersects the rails more than once. Make sure rungs intersect rails only once. If this is already the case and you still are receiving this message, one or more rungs might be longer than the rails. In this case you should consider using the node method or to prolong the rails.
satin column: object %s has a fill (but should not) Remove the fill color from the object:
Object > Fill and Stroke... The dialog will appear on the right side. Click the x within the fill tab.
satin column: object %(id)s has two paths with an unequal number of points (%(length1)d and %(length2)d) Getting this message, you should consider to use the advantages of the rung method, which allows an unequal amount of nodes. Otherwise check on every node if there are dublications and count all nodes on each path.

Stroke

Error Message Description
Legacy running stitch setting detected!
It looks like you’re using a stroke smaller than 0.5 units to indicate a running stitch, which is deprecated. Instead, please set your stroke to be dashed to indicate running stitch. Any kind of dash will work.

AutoFill

Error Message Description
Unable to autofill.
This most often happens because your shape is made up of multiple sections that aren’t connected.
Fills should be assigned to closed paths with a fill color, but there seems to be at least two gaps in your shape.
To find out where your path is not connected, select one node with the node edit tool and hit Ctrl+A. It will select all connected nodes and gaps become obvious where the selection ends.
