Please help with 'centering' a pattern
Hello! I know this is my first post on this forum but I really need some help and I searched the net like crazy and found nothing.
OK, so maybe I'm just stupid, I made a new test pattern to see if I can use it to decorate the edges of a bed cover(retexturing a bed for Oblivion). sooo when I make the selection where I want my pattern to appear...well it does some crazy things(or not crazy) the point is I want it to fill my selection and remain centered but it just goes up or down...I want to know if there is any way to center the pattern you use in your selection. I made the pattern's height to match the selection's height I'm using and it still goes crazy.... Sad I have inserted a picture to show what I want.
Thank you in advance and sorry about my question if it's stupid and about grammar/spelling mistakes, English is not my native language. [Image: stupidpattern.png]

RE: Please help with 'centering' a pattern
Thank you for the reply, ofnuts! I will try to use the clipboard method....I don't think(or know for that matter) that I can make it into a brush because I started from the brush and made it into the golden thingy with a tutorial, so it has bumpmap and whatnot...so I don't know if that is possible.
Uhh, I was afraid that it's not possible to do what I want to do. What I don't understand is why when I make a selection the exact size of the pattern it still won't fill centered...I just have to find another way to add these details to my blankets. Sorry for being such a noob.
Thank you again for answering!
