Point deviation unclear dialog


#1

The Point deviation now lives in a panel.
Hmm, ok.

@Joachim_Kuntz Translation is missing.

When I open the panel, it looks like this:
No idea what to do.
Ah, I have to scroll in the panel, stupid me.

Then I find a microscopic button:

It reads ‘Starl’ (STARL).

The ShowEdges dialog is more clear:

-C-H-A-R-L-E-S-

@Charles: what I get in the ShowEdges dialog is clearly “Start”, not “Starl”.

My WIP build is the following: 6.0.17073.13071, 14/03/2017. Please check if yours is previous.

As for the missing translation on top of the dialog (PointDeviation, which should be Punktabweichung) I am going to look into it and let you know when the issue is solved. Thanks for your feedback!


#3

My Wip is 6.0.17080.23331, 21.03.2017.
Because of a material issue, I enabled daily builds in order to check the result.
But after that, I disabled daily builds, so in future I will get the normal WIPs again.

Perhaps the L is a T, and the microscopic button size clips a part of the T.


Next issue:
When I call the Point Deviation panel from the panels menu:

Befehl: _-PointDeviation
Zu testende Punkte und Polygonnetze auswählen ( Sichtbar=Nein ): _Visible
Sichtbar ( Ja Nein Umschalten ): _Toggle
Unbekannter Befehl: _Toggle
Sichtbar ( Ja Nein Umschalten ): Ja

I must click ‘Ja’ in the command line to get the panel.
This shouldn’t be, or?

OK, I’ve just updated my build (now 6.0.17081.23521, 22/03/2017) and the button still reads “Start”, and quite clearly so:

Sorry, but I got no idea what might go wrong with your version. In order to get help, and also for the following issue you’re pointing out, maybe you should contact our technical support team (tech.eu@mcneel.com).

Kind regards

But I know:
The clipped text is a DPI issue.
And the button size is ridiculous.

I thought I’m in the Serengeti.
As far as I understand, the technical department gets support, hints, error reports and ideas from the users in here.
Hmm.

Hi Charles - apart from the localization, you’re suggesting it would be better if Start were at the top of the dialog, right?

Hello Pascal,

the position at the top would be good, more logical in any case.
While that was not my idea, it was yours.

I complained about the button size.

The Edges dialog, see initial post, makes it far better.
Why not use the dialog/panel width?
Like e.g. here:

Also then we don’t need to talk about clipped text…

Thanks,
