My first plugin: Show Stem Thickness


#21

One rude question :slight_smile: : have you added dragging?


#22

I’ve liked using this plugin a lot so thanks for making this!

But know after I updated my Glyphs to Version 2.5b (1104) this stopped working. Is it just me or does this plugin have some conflict with the latest version?


#23

Show Stem Thickness actually quit working at Build 1103. I filed an issue with the author on github but haven’t seen a fix yet. I am staying with Build 1101 until it is fixed because I use it daily.


#24

I noticed the same thing. I went back to 2.4.4 (1075) for now because I did enjoy the Show Stem Thickness to always be ‘passively measuring’ as I pass my mouse over the current glyph. Hope the plug-in owner can update it before 2.5 comes out officially!


#25

I send a pull request that fixes it.


#26

Thanks Georg.


Stem thickness plugin not working in latest 2.5b versions 1104 and 1105
#27

Thanks @GeorgSeifert, Sorry guys for slow responding and not updating the plugin, I’m studing again and I have problems with managing time


#28

Totally understandable Rafal.

It seems there is a new problem though. I just added a new issue for the new merge for you to look at.


#29

I’m also having trouble using Show Stem Thickness. (A great Plug-in by the way, I usually have it on all the time – many thanks!) It works again, but only partially: Shows thickness between two straight lines or between straight and curve, but no result between two curves. I am using Glyphs Build 1105.

Appreciate any help!


#30

I send a fix already. I’m not sure if it is applied yet. But try updating once in a while.


#31

It has not been merged yet. In addition I sent a reply to you about another issue with it, but I sent it as a reply to a github notification of your commit. Should I resend it to you at support?


#32

I did send another pull request that should fix this.


#33

The last one I see is #10, which is where the new problem shows up.


#34

I don’t understand. With #10 the plugin works fine for me.


#35

It measures fine for me too, but I discovered something new (to me) about it. This may have been the behavior in previous versions and I just didn’t notice it.

In views in a glyph window above 6000 pts the measured width numbers begin to go outside the background panel. I did some more tests this morning and see now that while the plugin background panel isn’t tied to a grid, the width number is (base aligned), even if the user has grid/steps set to 0/0. Here’s a screen shot of two instances:


#36

This is a problem in my code. I fixed it.


#37

Thank you Georg.


#38

Rafal has merged #10.


#39

I probably hadn’t updated the Plugin correctly, sorry! It works fine for me as well now.

Thank you everybody!
