repeat feature

Is there possibly a way you can incorporate a “repeat” counter within the app. That way we can still use it if it’s not in the pattern.

If tge word repeat is in the pattern, like repeat 1-50, you should be able to click (double click?) on the word repeat and a row counter shows up.

I am not sure if it will stay if you close tge app in between, so you may want to write down the row count before closing

Edit: it’s one click on the word repeat
And no, the counter is not saved, so write it down before closing :blush:

Yep. I’m hoping for one when it’s NOT in the pattern. That’s a good tip about saving the number before closing the app.

Ah, I see!

I prefer manual counters personally. I hate having the phone open all the time, the screen is either too bright or too dark.
And hubby always complains about it no matter how bright :joy:

I guess I could get a different manual one. I work with my laptop, then use the phone for the manual one … Full time Ribblr would work better for me. :wink:

I love my small click counters, or just marking the rows on some paper :memo: and sticking it in my wip box when I can’t find a counter :joy:

I sometimes use crochet.land to keep track. But usually only when I need the time for getting a price range for an item.

Interesting. The repeated instructions being separate and able to click to strike-through/keep track of which one you’re on is one of my favorite parts about Ribblr’s pattern writer, Ribbuild. I hope all Ribbuild pattern writers take advantage of it! Not doing so would definitely deter me from buying another pattern from someone tbh. :eyes: :sweat_smile:

Oh, it’s def a cool feature!
Especially for Amigurumi or small projects.

But I’m currently working on a 50 row repeat. I’m not gonna knit 50 rows in one setting.

It would be awesome if that counter would be saved until I mark that ‘line’ as finished.
(Not on topic, but a side thought :blush:)

Perfectly on topic. I love this idea.

Be sure to communicate that with them. With this being a new format, we are all still learning.

I love that feature also, ticking off each round row. However, not all pattern writers incorporate this feature for some reason- which I find downright irritating.
Irritated self tempted to vomit all over the designer, but Lord, help me to shut my mouth!!

@HookedByMarilyn Could you please elaborate? Why would you need a counter if you’re not in the pattern?

@CraftsbyNicB I passed your feedback regarding the counter not being saved to the team. Hopefully, we could add that in one of our next feature drops.

Thanks!

I am in the pattern. Just not all patterns say repeat. So I can’t use the counter.

@CraftsbyNicB I got an update from the tech team regarding the counter. They say that they are saved when you leave the pattern. In fact, there’s a different counter for each ‘repeat’, and each one of them is saved separately. Could you please check if it works like that for you?

@HookedByMarilyn Could you please DM an example for a pattern that doesn’t say repeat and you’d benefit from having a counter?

I tried it in the pattern I’m currently testing gor Ribblr.
Let me try again.

It DID save it!
The pattern tool jumped to another round, that’s why it showed up at zero.

One thing though, when you click the repeat, it marks the line as finished.
But that might be this super wacko phone screen :roll_eyes:
