Gypsy Tips - To find the cartridges used in a file

Wow!. It's a long time since I made these tips.
Here is a short picture tutorial

First save the file. Sometimes for this procedure to work, depending on the update, you may have to commit the file  by closing the file (which in gypsy is convoluted as there is no closing the file command so you have to open another file or a new file and then open this file again).
So on the keypad overlay window tap on the white box which is down below














and then you will get to the cartridge choice screen. tap on the down arrow next to SHOW and you will get a cartridge drop down. Choose Cartridge in Use


































So there you go - to find out cartridge in use. You can also find the cartridge you have linked in the same window.
Note that Cartridge in Use is update dependent in that you have to save the file and in some updates you have to close the file for it get committed.

Now a small test for you. :).
How many of you are really reading what I write.
Did you just raise your hand? Oops cannot see from here. !!
I would love to read your comments!!

Is there a way to compile your tips into one handy reference? They are good tips but I'd like to be able to refer to them as needed. Thanks so much for all your help!

Pam,
I promise you.... that I always read what ever you you send me. How else do you think I got this wise about the gypsy!
I too,like you, enjoying figuring out things. Though I must say you are much more than I.
Anyway, the best part, is that you share everything with us all, and I just can't thank you enough!!

Julie said...

I read this one but I must admit, sometimes I do get lost in your sriting and am just not getting it but that's probably me! And not being an expert on my Gypsy yet or knowing that I have that trick available. Thanks for all your hard work and tips and tricks. Keep up the good work and I'll get it eventually. It's a learning curve for me some nights!

Judi said...

Kate said...

My hand is raised as I did read this! Thank you SO much. I prefer the "show cartridge" option with Design Studio as I can determine which exact cartridge is used with a specific letter/image - but this is better than nothing! Thanks so much!
