What do you all think of having a boilerplate "legend" box on the pattern--perhaps on the tiler's cover sheet?
Adding any sort of text to the coverpage involves writing C code that in turn outputs PostScript code. In addition, PostScript (like SVG) does not handle flowed text. So you have to determine where lines should break/wrap and so on. It seems a lot of work for limited benefits. Not to mention that you have to program in C, which is not the typical profile of people who contribute to FreeSewing
Would adding a "notation block" like our measurement block be a better alternative?
Any block we would add in the
tiler will have the same concerns. We'd need to define an API between the
tiler and the rest to pass the information, and somehow we need to figure out how to present that information through the
tiler. Since the
tiler needs to be able to handle all sorts of paper sizes, this is not trivial.
tilernow has no idea how long of a line of text fits on a page. And moreover, it has no way of calculating how long a line of text is. So there are a lot of things that would need to be developed in order to make this work.
tilerCLI binary. So funneling data to that is not obvious because you'd have to turn it into something you can pass safely as a command line parameter. A more future proof method would be to build a proper tiler API that does not rely on our C tiler but instead does something more modern.
