Finer Control of Drawing Updates

Postby wandererfan » Fri Aug 30, 2019 11:47 am

git commit 5bed53f858 and git commit b2d8eeeb65 add finer control of drawing updates.

There are 2 new preference parameters:
- Update with 3d - this is a global control on whether or not drawings are updated in real time with changes to the 3D model. Default TRUE.
- Allow page override - this setting allows the "KeepUpdated" property of an individual drawing to override the "Update with 3d" setting. Default TRUE.

There is also a new tool:
TechDraw_Redraw forces a drawing Page update without reference to "Update with 3d", "Allow page override" or "KeepUpdated".

The existing preference parameter "KeepPagesUpToDate" controls the initial setting of "KeepUpdated" for new Pages.

The default values result in no change to current behaviour.

These changes are documented here TechDraw_Preferences#Drawing_Updates and here TechDraw_Redraw.

Thanks for the hard work. I'm looking for testing.
