at present plom doesn't muck with the sources of your test - just the PDF, so it can only watermark it can't manipulate the text as you indicate
cbm

well.... akshually,... in principle you can generate your tests anyway you want and tell Plom what your version map is (Plom needs to know which versions of questions are in what paper).

What's the estimated lifespan for the qt-based GUI? I recall that there is a web interface in the works (courtesy of Forest and Nicholas?) so just wondering if it is still worthwhile to submit changes to the current interface, based on experiences using the manager recently

at least two years, maybe more. web-UI will be a huge job
also: we can have more than one client! So I'd say patches welcome!
and guidance/advice if you want, but not tonight :)

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind :) (sorry, something odd is going on with my two gitter accounts..)

Is anybody familiar with the "selection" behaviour of QTableView?

um - somewhat
much fun can ensue
what in particular are you wanting to know?

FYI 0.8.1 Windows binaries are broken: plom/plom#1924

0.8.2 is ready to go, but a new setuptools 60.8.1 is out so I'll let that propagate a bit, planning to do 0.8.2 tomorrow morning

evening, maybe for system specific stuff, we can use the other channel
but big picture here:
Plom tools now try to verify SSL certificates

re: Philip's feature request about showing counts - is it a good idea to make these tab titles dynamic?
i notice some letters are underlined (potentially for keyboard switching, though it doesn't seem to work on my computer
anyway there's space next to the "Perform actions" button in each section to fit in some count

hmmm
i kinda dislike dynamic titles... but that is just me. and i can be convinced to change my mind
Elizabeth Xiao

I think it would be more efficient to see all of the counts "at a glance"
but i'm afraid of something obnoxious happening like underlining a parenthesis
cbm
@cbm755:matrix.org

underline: on windows and linux: this is alt- accessibility shortcuts. It might be "option" on a mac.
Elizabeth Xiao
@localsystem:matrix.org
[m]
ah yes, it works
cbm
@cbm755:matrix.org
[m]
The underlining is set manually: "C&olin" makes alt-o a shortcut for Colin
I know this from Win 3.1 (!!) but maybe its even earlier
Elizabeth Xiao
@localsystem:matrix.org
[m]
Gotcha - so I can keep the same underlining scheme if/when updating the titles then
cbm
@cbm755:matrix.org
[m]
makes sense
arechnitzer
@arechnitzer:matrix.org
[m]
yes
i can see how to do this
cbm

a word of caution: we keep talking about whether work on Manager is "making a silk purse from a sow's ear"

Father's aunt? someone armed with a vicious cherry-wood cane anyway
anyway, happy to take accept improvements but just something to keep in mind

this should be a pretty quick change, just counting the number of rows in a table and displaying it
cbm
@cbm755:matrix.org
[m]
do all such tabs update with a single click to "upload"?
(this is only useful if it really gives an overview)
Elizabeth Xiao
@localsystem:matrix.org
[m]
do you mean refresh?
arechnitzer
@arechnitzer:matrix.org
[m]
"just"
dangerous word
cbm
@cbm755:matrix.org
[m]
I tihnk I might mean that. The button I have to click to get correct information
but not click too often or I might lose all the work I did

Somehow I think I might be somewhat to blame for the creation of the porcine components of this conversation
