Feature request: Ruler Property Editor for "LayoutView::create_measure_ruler()" #342
This is related to both:
The newly added feature LayoutView::create_measure_ruler() is extremely powerful and useful as I expected! Thank you very much for providing this.
To further enhance this feature, I would like to have an enhanced Ruler Property Editor with a GUI something like below. I hope the GUI is self-explanatory.
I'm preparing a separate test report regarding LayoutView::create_measure_ruler() #341 where some issues captured through a kind of stress test will be described.
To me, it seems that the issues are (perhaps) related to the deep part of the "auto measure algorithm."
I think this enhanced GUI should help debug the issues, too.
With warm regards,
thanks for this suggestion. I striving for generic functionality with as many use cases as possible. So I'd like to modify the proposal somewhat. Here is an idea:
"Swap points" would swap P1 and P2 (a function I wanted myself). "Snap to layout" would snap P1, P2 or both to layout edges.
The seed points would be P1 and P2 then. If you set P1 = P2, the effect is the same as for "create_measure_ruler". All these buttons imply "Apply".
You can try this solution in the "issue-342" branch.
