Size reffers to dimension of individual crosses. All crosses inside the object have the same size unless some effect or transformation is used.

Span defines extent of knot fill with respect to object contours. Possible values are Overflow , Cropped , Interior . In case of Overflow fill you may want to exclude object contours from the mesh. This can be done in Common Settings tab.

Align to Common Grid . This option allows to align crosses in individual objects to the same grid. To make this alignment work the objects must have same size of the crosses and no effect or transformation can be used.
