I have use the Version Git:a4f375effa68 “Built on Di Mai 11 2021” on Ubuntu with “Seamly2D-latest-x86_64.AppImage”. All Names of a Pattern-File are not displayed. With Version Git:ef7785524de6 the Names are displayed. Is there a switch to activate or deactivate the names? Or is this a bug in the AppImage version?
No, not a bug per se. Click the “eye” visibility icon next to the font drop down on the toolbar … or select the show point name item in the view menu to show the point names. Once you do this, the prefs will remember the last state of the visibility when you close the app.
I’m looking into being able to set a default value for new feature prefs… in this case to have the point names show after updating the app.
I submitted a PR that fixes the point name (and origin axis) setting to default to show on new or update installs.
Hi Douglas, I tried this but could not see the point names. I have clicked on the eye icon and saved the pattern, closed the software and opened it again. Did I do something wrong? Kind regards.
Saving the pattern has no effect on the visibility of the point names. Each time you “click” or toggle the eye toolbutton (or toggling the menu item in the view menu) the current state is stored in the preferences.
Have you tried zooming in on the pattern? There’s a point at which the names are turned off when they get to small by zooming out to be of use, and appear again when zooming in.
Something else I thought of to check… go into the app preferences graphics->fonts, and make sure a font is selected for the point names.
BTW… should note that while zooming in, once the point names reach a certain size, they cease to grown in size, and maintain the same distance from the point.
I see them now, thank you!!
