I’m sure I can figure something out. I’m sure it has to do with the default currently only works with a new notch, and not loading / converting an older ver pattern. It probably would make most sense to set the notches to the default settings when converting the pattern. Keep in mind that “passmarks” had no length and width… so off the top of my head when a pattern is being converted - the length and width values are being set to a hardcoded .250 - or a 1/4 inch. If so this is an easy fix… just need to replace the .250 with the default setting values.
It would be possible to add a button somewhere (and menu item) to reset all the notch geometry, not exactly sure where to put such a button.
This has been brought up several times… you also have to set the “Show second notch on seam line” in the pattern preferences.
It’s a legacy thing… something that I can probably get rid of as there is no need to have 2 checks. Or what would make more sense is the Show second notch pref setting should be the default setting for a new notch… which can be overridden per notch - just like the type, length & width.
Which then brings up the question - if there’s a global replace for the length and width - should we not also have the same for Type and Show second notch? So here’s an idea… what about a Notch Manager… where a dialog displays a table of all the notches with the Notch Id, Show Second, Type, length & Width values… We could have a “Replace All” button that resets all the values to the defaults in the pref settings… as well as separate replace buttons for each property. By putting the data in a table it’s all in one easy to view form where you could globally replace, then tweak any individual notches.
