  2. Draw an area in the work Canvas with the mouse
  3. Make a Subdivision with the area ( blue arrow )

When all needed subdivisions were defined, quit the subdivision creating mode ( red arrow )

A set of subdivisions is attached to the current project name. They are saved and reloaded automatically.

To delete a Subdivision, select the area in the Work Canvas and press delete.

These Work Canvas Subdivisions can separately be exported to data arrays (see example below)

Bitmap2LCD Resize Preview

Since v2.6B, there’s a new toolbar at the top of the graphic (blue arrow)

When importing a graphic file, you can choose to resize the graphic size in the graphic preview (yellow arrow) or turn the graphic or reload the original graphic.

If the graphic is much larger in size than the work canvas, you will see a “blue frame” in the preview, frame which shows the size of the Work Canvas. You can move this area to the graphic detail you wish to import. In this case, the later message box resize to fit should be answered with NO.

When you want to resize the graphic, click on the selection button (yellow button) and then define the size on the image with mouse. The preview will be resized.

When ready import the graphic (red arrow) to the floating selection layer above the work canvas. When ready paste the floating selection layer.
