editing PICs
« on: October 10, 2020, 12:05:22 PM »
When editing a pic in SCICompanion, is there an easy way to nudge lines, either indivdiually or in a group?

In my specific case, I have a view with three boxes drawn on it, and I want to change where I've put those boxes.  I don't want to redraw the boxes from scratch, because they're fairly intricate, but I no longer like where I've placed them.

There's a "transform coords" button in the toolbar, to the right of the Toggle Priority Lines button.

If this is checked, then when you hover over the image, the "control points" of whatever drawing tool is selected (pen, line, fill) will light up and you can drag them.

That only works for individual points though.

To move groups of things, select the cmds in the cmd window on the left, then cut (ctrl-x) and paste back (ctrl-v). Then you should be able to drag them as a group in the image area (there are also hotkeys, on the numpad I think, to stretch/shrink them).

Okay, so that sort of worked... but it's not exactly as I expected... I can select some of the commands I want in the list, and then cut/paste them, but when I paste them it looks like they're not "committed". As in, they don't show up in the list.   --- oh, i figured it out... I have to double-click the mouse once I've positioned it where I want them... not sure what I was doing wrong before, but I was causing SCICompanion to hard crash.

This may take some time, since all the commands for the boxes aren't all in a row.

Is there a marquee select type of command, where I can select the areas on screen I want, and it will auto-highlight the commands that are inside that box?

I just saw too an earlier thread that touched on this stuff: http://sciprogramming.com/community/index.php?topic=1807.0

Unfortunately there's no way to do that  :-\

And yes, there are still some crashing bugs in the pic editor when cutting/pasting/transforming coords. Still haven't been able to track it down.
