Re: Expressions, how they really work

fair point, the expressions available are quite limited and sometimes you're going to have to make do. If the num values are only ever 1 or 0 you could replace num_1==1 with just num_1 and keep the same functionality. Personally I would probably split this up in two and something like this: chosen_p...

Re: Expressions, how they really work

... Usually they are up to 20 characters long, but in some cases they can be more than 400 characters :) ... I would try to avoid that. Having to figure out how a 400 character expression works is quite hard, even if you're the one that has made it. Not to mention having to figure out why it breaks...

Why should we bother providing feedback?

Excuse the bluntness, but except for the HTTPS thread it's been years since anyone connected to Missler has replied to something posted in the Suggestions and Enhancements subforum. Do you want feedback? Do you want to engage with your users? Right now it feels like Missler says: "You have feedback?...

change top.cfg encoding to UTF-8

Apparently the default encoding for the top.cfg files is UCS-2 LE BOM Git is awesome for tracking changes in text files, but cannot read the (outdated) UCS-2 LE BOM encoding. Which means I've got to manually change the encoding to see what changed every time TopSolid touches my $TOPCONFIG's top.cfg ...

set layer colour and/or transparency

Is there a way to set a colour/transparency for a layer?
Desired result:
- Switching to a layer switches the design colour/transparency to the layer preset
and/or
- Placing an object in a layer changes it's colour/transparency to the layer preset

I'm looking for any and all resources regarding scripting. Specifically to facilitate exporting a BOM and/or a cutlist to excel.

Re: parameter suggestion drop-down list

I discovered there is a drop-down menu in the semi-transparant box that appears when you select a dimension. It replaces the entire content of the dimension. This can be used to check the existing names and add them in when you're using just that value. Although this helps, I think it could be more ...

Perspective view

Somehow I can't get "conical perspective" to stick. The view keeps reverting to one without perspective, especially after using "fit screen".

I'd like the perspective view to stick. Please advise.

Re: top.cfg group vs. config, who's the boss?

so what I gather is this group top.cfg gets read first then config top.cfg gets read, and it overwrites group top.cfg settings that are also in the config's top.cfg for some settings (and no one knows for which and/or how many) this is not the case workings might differ for different .cfg files Excu...

Re: Best practices

Using edgebandings - Nesting don't calculate edgebanding thickness INTO part size, so nested parts are smaller, when edgebandings cut off their thickness from part. It's stoneage solution when edgebanding machines didn't had milling unit. Here are some workarounds to get right result. As I understa...
