    I now know what Bert's getting at, only one of the contour options is available... That happens to me all the time, and I don't know why either...

    What I did was show how to change the direction of contour-- in my pic, the contour was clockwise, clicking the tool I showed would make it counter-clockwise. This is important when working with objects with holes, because hole outlines are always CCW, and 'normal' outlines are always CW. This is how graphics programs know if a closed object inside another closed object is a hole border, or if it's just an object inside another object which can be painted separately...

    Right the only option is an outside. I tried what Mike said still didn't work
    I think what happens is once you make changes to the original pattern then you can't make changes to the contour.
    I went and deleted that whole program, started from scratch and did my contour before doing anything else. That was the only way I could get all 3 contour option to not be greyed out.

    Hello Bert e.o.,
    i think that you must select your contour, then go to the "outline pen" (on the right side under) there you have an option "position".
    Now you can choose for outside , center, inside.

    Hope that this is what you are seeking.

    Succes, Pierre
