some initial thoughts

heys!

there should be a snap or spinner increment that one could set so that the smallest number for input would be something like 0.25mm or something user set

having things dragable and then the units to 3 decimal places just produces junk faster rather than anything that's to a real or desirable size

also if i'm entering a fillet radius i should be able to use the wheel on the mouse to spin up some numbers perhaps?

cheers

Hi Carl,

Some of what you suggest is already there. See the attached picture. The slider on the ruler gadget can be dragged to set a specific snap value. Operations like drag respect this snap. The spinners in the ribbon currently do not. That is a good suggestion, however.

Thanks for the input!

Thanks Jeff!
i was wondering about that slider , but the increments along it didn't seem to make much sense at the time , although i will have more of a look at it soon!

yes the spinners in the ribbon (like when setting a fillet radius this way etc)

cheers!

Ahh got it ! (hover over it and use the wheel on the mouse )

amazing what 8 hrs of sleep can do! :smileyhappy:

initially i just dragged the maker for it and the numbers were all weird increments , once i used the wheel to set it to 10 or 1 etc the increments on the slider made more sense...


cheers

Hi Carl,

Good observation. You are correct - sometimes the increments chosen are a bit weird. This is a helpful observation, and we will give us something to look into.

Thanks!
