Re-enabling of Free Node positioning

Re-enabling of Free Node positioning

Postby spinifex » Mon Aug 01, 2011 8:44 am

I have just posted the feature request appended below at Mantis, and you can support it or otherwise by adding a node to the request at this URL:
https://sourceforge.net/apps/mantisbt/f ... hp?id=1184

"Dimitry enabled Free Node positioning in Preview versions 1.2.6_01 and 1.2.6_02

http://sourceforge.net/projects/freepla ... ic/4530255

but after discussion of some imperfections in implementation the feature was disabled.

But future discussion within that thread suggested that the (ongoing) posters felt that basically "the baby had been thrown out with the bathwater", ie even if free node positioning was not perfect it was a great feature nevertheless. And that maybe it could be made a less obvious option and/or provided with some pop-up warning about its imperfections.

Or perhaps the code could be made available (sort of like a plug-in) for intrepid mappers?"

Cheers

I probably get back to this feature after we have a new release and increasing download numbers.

Hi Dimitry

Good to hear that resurrection has not been ruled out.

...and the increased download target gives me all the more reason to continue my mission of spreading the good word about FP across the Indian subcontinent.

cheers
