Pattern Piece Flip in Details

on Mon Dec 11, 2017 9:34 pm
I have need to flip pattern piece in Details.

In the cases when I have the left and right piece, it would be nice to have those printed the correct way up.
When cutting lot of different pieces, it is difficult remember exceptions. To have the label text on the top of the pattern piece makes it easier to cut correctly.

Sorry, slow down little bit. I just cannot get the idea. Do you mean you don't like that layout can mirror a piece? You can disable this.

The need is simply to control in the Detail mode that the piece flipped on not in Layout mode.
Now the flipping is random by the placement algorithm, but I would like to control it more.

Finally, i understood. Smile Right now there is no an easy way to do this. Piece you see is just a projection of is going on on Draw stage. I can flip the piece, but later your will need to unite flipped piece and this is very hard to do. Another hack is to present Force flipping option that will work on layout stage.

Is it so hard for you to mirror points you need to trace for the right piece?

I do the mirroring in the Draw mode if needed. It is sufficient at the moment.
The Force Flipping will give all needed control to the printing, which is actually needed.

Okay, but if you want this please add new issue. This can work only for layout.
