HOW TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PDF PATTERNS



You purchased a PDF pattern on the Jalie website and are not sure how to download and print it? This blog post if for you!


HOW TO I GET TO THE DOWNLOAD PAGE?

All roads lead to Rome! Here are three easy ways to get to your PDF patterns:

1 - On the website, immediately after you submit your order

Click the link in the confirmation message to go directly to the Download Page

 

Oops! You hit back, closed the window? The link is no longer there? No worries you can still download your patterns:

2 - Through your Jalie account

Click "My Downloadable Pattern" under the "My Account" tab or the link at the very bottom of the page to see the list of PDF Patterns linked to your account.

Drop-Down Menu in the upper-right corner of the screen.

If you are logged out, you will need to log in to see it.

 

 

Links in the footer section, on all pages of our website. Visible at all times (logged in or not)

3 - Through your email confirmation

In your order confirmation (you receive the email within seconds after placing your order), you will see the pattern you purchased with a link next to the file name (in blue). Those links will take you to the download page. 

 

You may have to enter your login information if you have not been on the Jalie website for a while. Your credentials are the email and password you used at checkout.

 

I AM ON THE DOWNLOAD PAGE. WHAT DO I DO NOW?

The My Downloadable Patterns is where you will find all PDF purchases, grouped by order and listed by date (the most recent purchases first). You can see how many downloads you have left for each file.

 

When you click the download button, the PDF will open in your browser. Once it is open, SAVE IT LOCALLY.  Once a file is saved to your computer, you can print it as many times as you need to. DO NOT PRINT FROM YOUR BROWSER

The buttons may be slightly different on your computer / browser.

You might have to go through the File menu to save.

 

 

SAMPLE TEST PAGE IN CHROME

Our Sample Test page in Chrome. It is tempting to print from there. DON'T :) If it opens in your browser, save it locally.

Click the download icon and open the file in Acrobat. With Acrobat, printing is less tricky and you can use the layer option when available (print your size only).

Choose a location you will easily find afterwards. Go to that folder, open the PDF with Acrobat Reader and then you are ready to print and assemble your PDF pattern.

There is also a way to save the PDF without opening it in your browser (useful for larger files like our cycling apparel pattern or men's pants pattern that are scans or the original patterns):

  • Right-click on the download button
  • Select "save target as..." or "save linked file as..."
  • Choose location and save 

Quick and easy way to save the patterns to your computer.

After saving, locate the files, open and print as many times as needed.
