# Issue #416: Marker and Yardage Calculator feature

New issue 416: Marker and Yardage Calculator feature https://bitbucket.org/valentinateam/valentina/issues/416/marker-and-yardage-calculator-feature

Susan Spencer:

Add feature to calculate a Layout based on fabric width. A Layout on fabric is called a ‘Marker’. User indicates if fabric has a ‘nap’ (one-way direction) or a ‘repeat’ (horizontal stripe, vertical stripe, or plaid (both horizontal and vertical)). User indicates in Detail mode the grainline of each workpiece. The workpieces are arranged so that each workpiece’s grainline matches the grainline of the fabric.

Once the Marker is generated, the yardage can be calculated and displayed.

I know about this problem. Here is what gave me my mom from her work:

In this case we have three different layers that a program calculate independently. And also in one layout they calculate three different sizes.On Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 5:48:13 PM UTC+2, Susan Spencer wrote:

and this bit becomes critical in any close fitting stretch type clothing (leotards swimsuits and any dance/activewear type stuff)

maybe there could be a “compass rose” type thing you could mark pattern parts with so that the layout algo will know to avoid bad rotations??On Thu, Dec 10, 2015 at 3:56 PM, Roman Telezhinskyi dismine@gmail.com wrote:
