Nope… I don’t see it either. In fact the only two shoulder_center measurements I see are to the high bust front & back.
Also missing in regards to the shoulder center would be the girth measurement which would be shoulder_center_f to shoulder_center_b through the crotch. Necessary if making jumpsuits - like Elvis, leotards or one piece swimsuits.
the procedure for requesting a new measurement is (or was) on the wiki. I may not have time to check the forum for the next couple of days, but if I come back and have no indication that you have found the procedure, I will look it up. you might try using search in the repository at github on the words add new measurement. If that returns nothing, you might try the search on bitbucket. I hope that what I am remembering is not something I once read on “old wiki”
This is why I suggest a new measurement system where (just like in LF) the user can place points and define paths between them. In this case, you would use the ‘Midpoint between two points’ tool on the path from ‘neckBaseSide’ to ‘shoulderTip’ to define the ‘mid-shoulder’ point, use the ‘Perpendicular point along line’ using the bust point and waist line to define a point on the waist line directly below the bust, then create a path from the newly created mid-shoulder point to ‘bustTip’ to the newly created point on the waist line. (It would probably take less time to do it than it did to type it in.)
I think a template properly implemented should allow you to use the term girth or any other term defined in that particular pattern system to map to the known measurement.
@Douglas, that is why I asked you earlier about a written reference for the use of the term girth. I am working on the issue of how to implement templates (and am willing to accept any help or input). Currently as far as I see there is no effect in selecting any pattern system in the preferences.
If one of those does not contain the specific measurements that you need then there are at least two ways to fix it:
add a patternsystem to the list
add the ability to create one’s own patternsystem
Personally, I prefer #2 and I believe that instructions and examples need to be provided for creating a new template to define the patternsystem.
@slspencer talked with me about this at length and I have been unable to find any example to prove her wrong. I will try to summarize what she said about measurements and invite her to correct me if I am wrong.
The list of terms used by people to describe body points or measurements between body points is a huge or infinite list. After the study of many pattern making systems, she created the “known measurement” list used in valentina. Templates should be used to present the known terms to a user while there is a finite list of known measurements recognized internally.
