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encoding for the top.cfg files is UCS-2 LE BOM Git is awesome for tracking changes in text files, but cannot read the (outdated) UCS-2 LE BOM encoding.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

export BOM and/or Cutlist to excel using script

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

Thnx.

Re: "part positioning on machine" preview window

... they don't spend a lot time on this forum since its intent is user to user interface. If that is the case, I don't understand the purpose of the "suggestions and enhancements" forum. I didn't seem to have any luck reaching Missler either through using the form on their website or through this f...

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...

parameter suggestion drop-down list

To make it more clear what is meant with a parameter and/or expression, it is a good habit to make parameters a bit more expressive than just 1,2, or 3-letter combinations. (good code hardly needs documentation). Currently, this is not so easy, because it is not straightforward which parameters are ...

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

As I understand it, by default TS looks at the group top.cfg, and then overrides it with the config's top.cfg settings to adjust the company settings with personal preferences. Yet I am told (by our reseller's consultant) that there are settings for wich the group's top.cfg settings are forced. Is t...
