I took a quick look at the labels and the template editor, and without going into details of the “other” program - which I believe made the editor even worse… I believe we need to update the label editor. In that regards I’d rather wait till after I deal with some other features I feel are more important right now.
That being said I believe we could incorporate more elements from the measurements and variables. We could probably include custom or “user defined” measurements, and variables into the mix - with the caveat that any user defined element would not display / print translations in the labels. That’s why for ex the inclusion of the placeholders Word: Cut and Word: on Fold are there, where those strings are translated. If you just added “Cut” or “on Fold” in the template it would not be translated.
Since I also believe there is a need in the app to have a “text” tool to allow for more than the 2 “labels” in the current app, it may make more sense to incorporate updating the template editor while adding a new text tool. For example: there might be a need to be ale to place (translated) words like “Gather”, “Pleat”, etc… the logical thing to do is use the template editor in a text tool to add these sort of words. If the list of placeholders expands to include more measurements, variables, and other words, the drop down list will get unusably long. Therefore - it’s one reason why I said the template editor needs updating. There needs to be a simplified way of selecting from a multitude of various placeholder in various groups.
