[new mini feature] Sketcher Segments per Geometry

Postby abdullah » Mon Mar 13, 2017 9:55 pm

In the help forum there was some complain about teselation in the sketcher (linked to bsplines that can get really long).

Some time ago I implemented an option to increase the segments together with some improvements for BSplines and I forgot about it. Today I rediscovered it and decided to post here to create awareness:

As said, a mini feature... ;)

very nice, thanks! I wanted it occasionally, when working with thin rings (concentric circles with somewhat small difference in radii).

Indeed default value usually works good but in special use cases the result on the screen can look bad. Being able to fix that by increasing the segments value is therefore a nice addition. Thanks for adding the configurable option. And as you did a good job with this feature announcement and provided the corresponding image and everything. To raise awareness for another of such mini features i decided to mention it here.

Font size value is now being used for the "blue" text too. I remember occasionally users asked if the font size can be made configurable by the user. Now the user can configure it.
