Settings for helper "rubber" line

Reported by: andygol Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:
Keywords: Cc:


I searched but didn't find settings for helper "rubber" line for adjusting it appearance.
How I can set it colour, width and style (dotted, dashed, solid. etc)? Can somebody add options to adjust it?

You can turn it on/off. Color is the select color. Style cannot be changed.

What if I add common options for line style (width, pattern)? (color is separate)
This can be customized in different places (rubber line, extrude, improveWayAccuracy, etc.)
It is not very common to customize them, but if people want...

Let us try it:
draw.stroke.helper-line, draw.anglesnap.stroke.highlight, draw.anglesnap.stroke.helper parameters corresponds the stroke: 2 5 10 means 2px width, 5+10px dashed line. 3 means 3px width solid line.
GuiHelper.getCustomizedStroke is the function that decodes this preference strings.
helper-line color is also customizable (defaults to selected color).

Maybe a mistake in change 5741...
In this line:

rubberLineColor = Main.pref.getColor(marktr("draw.helper-line"), null);

are you sure "draw.helper-line" is translatable?

It is indeed, but it should be "helper line" only.

comment:9 Changed 7 years ago by akks

Thank you. Never understood this color-translating features :)

Are you sure that there is only one line called "helper line"?
Are the translations in Extrude action correct?

Color translations is easy. Simply use a user visible translatable string. The code behind will convert it into a color code. There are no hidden colors - all colors are user configurable always.

Could you change the name, so a human understands it --> iwa to improve way accuracy?

comment:13 Changed 6 years ago by akks

Ok, I'll change it. Are the color names suitable?
