|Summary||0009754: Flowaround distances|
|Description||Flowaround needs to have distance option (witch should have separate values for each border of rectangular frames).|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Thats why the "Contourline" option in the NodeEdit Palette exists.
Simply select "Flow around Contourline" and edit the Contourline to your needs.
Thanks, that is great for fine manual tuning (which is not most common task). But word "simply" does not describe this case very well (that's why I choose "feature" severity, not a bug).
For simple and quite common action like setting equal flowaround distance for all sides of rectangular frame now we need:
1 go to "shape" in PP
2 select "use contour line"
3 click "edit"
4 click "edit contour line"
5 set spacing step
6 click "reduce" or "enlarge" button
7 click "end editing"
Adding "flowaround distance" field next to "Round corners" would decrease this procedure to 2 steps (for most common case of equal distances):
1 go to "shape" in PP
2 click "up"/"down" arrows or simple (indeed simple!) roll mouse wheel
Setting different distances for different side of rectangle is quite complicated task too - one need to manually calculate and set coordinates for each corner point.
we definitively need a better way to manage the contour line for simple cases.
this will go into the new PP...
||btw, ale, what about new PP? I didn't receive any messages from you.|
I played around a bit with shapes other than rectangles and saw that flowaround distance is absolutely necessary: just try to set flowaround via contour line for triangle or arrow-shaped polygon and you will see too.
And one more stupid question: is contour anything more than polygon attached to frame?
