Application preferences notches length

Hallo, the notch length can be set to a maximum of 1.5mm. Is it possible to increase it to at least 3 or 5 mm? 1.5mm notches can easily be overlooked in print. Gr Michael

Hmm, the max default size in the preferences appears to be 1.5 units, but the max size individually chosen appears to be 5 units.

Which is reasonable for cm, but is silly for inches, & basically unusable for mm.

3-5mm does seem usable, so I don’t think we need the max units increased to 15, but on the purely emotional side, my experience with “the big three” argues that it might be good to increase it to 10.

Confirmed. Not sure why I used 1.5… when the Piece dialog is set to 5.

Confirmed

The more robust way to handle it is instead of limiting the max value in the form(s), is to code the max in the dialog cpp’s based on the pattern units.

Hallo, to increase to 5 units is also adequate. It would save me a lot of rework. I have not yet seen any notches with more than 5mm in practice. Thanks

Oh good, I was concerned that it might have been one of those hardcoded into the wrong level sort of things.

Well… it is harddcoded… in the 2 dialog ui forms. But the ui forms have no idea what the pattern units are… so have to determine that in each dialog class constructor, and setMaximum() for the length spinbox.
