Yes, the term has been a bit contentious and deceiving over the years. And I’m wondering if it’s really either. Some people use it for measurements while others, I think most, use it as an easily accessible place for things like Ease where one can change the values in one place for the whole pattern. I also use it for complex formulas that get used over and over in a pattern (normally size related). I have no idea what one should name it, just please don’t take it away
And… while you’re busy with this… what about an export/import of these increments/variables to or from another pattern? At the moment, I do this manually. (Then… I don’t know if anyone else would want this feature… if anyone else uses it the way I do.)
Yes, the History is a little touchy in the sense that one must always select the bottom line after editing something back in time (I’m time travelling again). I don’t mind, either way would suit me, personally.
But that said… could I suggest something? Would it be possible that, once one has finished editing and clicks on the OK button at the bottom to close the box, that it automatically selects the last line before exiting?
Also… when editing in History… one selects the line to start editing, but if one wishes to add 2 lines based on each other, one needs to manually move to below the 1st line. Shouldn’t the position of the edit automatically move down as one adds lines?
Please note that these are only things that I’ve noticed that could make the feature more ‘friendly’ to work with. One thing that I have noticed that has improved vastly, which is a great help, is that the program auto-backup is working much better. Thank you very much for this. When I do crash because I forgot to move to the last line or to the next line, I only have to close the pattern and reopen it, do the changes again and continue working. You’re a STAR
