Re: PIC2PAT to EXCEL

Technically this is not possible, because Pic2Pat patterns are generated as drawings, rather than character symbols. There are two main reasons for this.
The first reason is to generate patterns with symbols which are easy to read on paper. There are no cross-stitch symbols in standard computer fonts and using existing font symbols is always a compromise.
The second reason is to block an industry which was emerging some years ago which was generating hundreds of Pic2Pat patterns a day, then ripping of the header and footer with external software and selling the result for a profit without any name recognition of the origin, or any profit flowing back to Pic2Pat.
For genuine personal usages there may be ideas to think of and I would encourage you to add any comments to the requests for improvements thread
