Niggles in the new release (1.2mm, invalid email and random zoom outs)

Hi, I love using Seamly2d but this latest release has become a bit of a bother. The default pen width is now 1.2mm and no amount of changing settings or messing around can change this.

Similarly, if you do try and change the settings in the Application Settings you can’t do so until you enter a valid email address. Why? I don’t want to add my email address thank you.

There also seems to be an issue with the focus randomly zooming out, especially if you are doing close work moving spline points or hiding point names.

The thing that bothers me is because you only seem to have one main release a year I am stuck. Any chance of some bug fix interim releases?

Many thanks and keep up the excellent work!

More info on the zooming out. If you click on something and miss it zooms out to the full extent which given I am spending a lot of time now clicking on lines so that I can adjust them from the default 1.2mm to the 0.35mm that all my imported files are defaulting to.

I put a null email for the email thing. It was an oversight. The 20240205 release has the issue fixed.

It sounds like when you miss your target you click again almost immediately. Effectively double-clicking. Double-clicking zooms to fit. It does get annoying at times, but I haven’t thought of a solution that I’d like to present, can you?

Oooh, is that what does it? It’s been happening to me, too, and it is very annoying. @Douglas, is there some way that we can de-activate this double-click zoom feature?

OH! I bet he already did that.

  • rummages through Application Preferences There it is!
  1. Application Preferences (in the File menu)
  2. Graphics category (at the bottom of the list)
  3. Behavior tab (again at the bottom of the list)
  4. Zoom section (middle section)
  5. :black_square_button: Zoom to selected with double click

As for myself, the annoyance from accidentally double-clicking is less than the distress of trying to remember where I left the zoom buttons last. It helps a lot just to know that it’s a double-clicking feature.

Was just going to mention that:

Also… at least on Windows - the mouse double click is a function of your system settings for the delay setting between double clicks. If you have the setting set too long, any 2 successive clicks will trigger a doucle click event. Shorthen the time, and that won’t happen.

This has not been an issue for me… as my delay is set pretty short.

Ooohhh… Thank you. You’re the light of my life! I’ve de-activated the double-click zoom option now. I work with one finger on the Ctrl & the other hand on the mouse wheel, so I zoom in & out all the time. Much easier for me :star_struck:

Yes. Double clicking doesn’t zoom to fit any application anywhere ever so remove that or allow for gestures and shortcuts to be specified as a user option. Young people have no differentiation between a single and double click.

It would be really useful if the roller ball worked as a proper zoom. Mine sort of works sometimes. Works perfectly on other apps.

Thanks for that. Will check out Github

I’m kinda getting a bit annoyed at having to repeat myself…

You can DISABLE the “zoom to selected with double click”. It doesn’t need to be removed.

Shortcuts have nothing to do with this topic, but I’m looking forward to your work on the custom shortcut feature… issue #392. :wink:

Works perfectly for me. Maybe try setting the zoom modifer and speed differently.
