Storing custom measurements and pattern system mmeasurements into each customer measurement file results in multiple measurement files per customer (multiply each designer x each patternsystem), and creates patterns that can be used only by the original designer.
This breaks the Valentina shareable patterns and sharable measurements model. It removes Valentina’s special sauce. Sharability is the very foundation of this project.
The pattern system measurements should be stored as macros. When a designer selects a pattern system, and has a measurement file selected, the calcuated custom measurements should be available in the meaasurements list, but are not permanently stored. Similar approach for custom measurements that a designer has created.
The current ‘increments’ approach works perfectly for pattern-specific measurements, as these are stored in the pattern. Designer’s custom measurements should be stored in the pattern as well. Pattern system measurements should be availalble in Valentina, so no need to store them in the pattern.
For ‘increments’ that
