To grade a garment, you use the grade points on the base size. The outline of the pattern pieces for the other sizes are plotted by reference to those base size grade points.
Grade points on the base size are colored white.
By default, all corner points (squares) on the base size are grade points.
You can configure other points (circles) on the base size to be grade points. For more information, refer to Configuring Points as Grade Points.
You can only select grade points on the base size.
