Just to confirm TechDraw is available in the build i did today! Probably yesterday i didn't get the correct branch.
Looking good. I added some views and dimensions. Everything can be moved around. Title block text can be edited directly by clicking on it. Spreadsheet view still works! And as a bonus it has preferences page!
Good job and thanks to all involved over the years for making it. It's amazing it is finally here and it looks like it will meet all the expectations.
Some UX notes and first impressions:
In the sidebar when inserting 2D projections i noticed characters are used for arrows. Maybe icons could be used instead. In Python you would do something like this:
Code: Select all
iconArrowUp = QtGui.qApp.style().standardIcon(QtGui.QStyle.SP_ArrowUp)
The result can be observed in the middle button on the attached image:
As for the attached image i do have one observation. Green indicators for inserting title block text, view text and i guess view "drag handle" UX elements do work. But i would imagine this visual elements could become distraction once user gets over the initial learning curve. If something would be done to improve this in the future that would be nice! But this should not be priority and more user feedback is needed.
