I hope I'm doing something wrong. When I have a design I wish to put on fleece or a beanie, etc., I like to create a knockdown stitch to hold the pile/fluff down. I create a BOUNDARY around the design as an object (not a "shape"), use a cross-hatch or a run stitch or even artwork as the border and then do a cross-hatch fill to create the knockdown stitching. My problem is... I cannot get the fill to sew from center out. Even if I try to move the start & stop beads, all they do is orbit the edge of the boundary. I'm unable to move them into the center of the knockdown field. How do I get the knockdown to sew center out instead of spiraling into the center from the outer edge? The same "problem" exists when I use a programmed fill (ie. 204) at a density of 10 spi. I am unable to have the start bead and stop bead anywhere inside the knockdown area. They will only sit on the outer edge of the segment. Is there a way to get the start/stop off of the edge?

Here's some advice from our support team:

Select the Artwork boundary and slice it in the middle. Make sure that the slice line is in the same angle as you are intending the C. Fill stitches to to be.
Once you have the shape sliced, break it up. You now have 2 pieces. Select the first piece and convert it to C. Fill. Place the start bead and end bead so that stitches travel from the middle to the outside. Select the second Artwork shape and do the same.
You can either insert a trim command between the 2 shapes, or you can insert a Run Stitch segment that travels along the outside of the first shape towards the start point of the second shape.
