LDPatternCreator - Release 1.3.9 - Nils Schmidt - 2012-07-09


Here is the fresh LPC 1.3.9 !

Please uninstall older versions of this software before installing a new version.
Your configuration won't be deleted if you have already version greater than 1.3.1 installed on your machine.

Change log:

New features:
  • You can use a spline tool for creating spline curves.
  • You can save your data in a LPC - V1.00 legacy format. This format will be read by all LPC versions, but it does not store all pattern information (e.g. metadata, primitives and groups).
  • You can switch between the selection of overlapping primitives while CTRL is pressed.
  • You can zoom with '+' and '-' too.
  • The zoom textfield shows the zoom dialog with just one click.
  • The F5/F6 toolboxes are movable.
  • Overall program stability, compatibility and performance is improved.
Fixed Bugs from 1.3.X:
  • The sticker dimensions are not correct.
  • It is impossible to select a primitive/​group, which is transformed into a straight line.

(see full list of tickets for 1.3.9)

I included a short readme.htm in the installation directory.

Cheers & Leg Godt

Nice! for those who are dumb enough like me to look for the spline tool a long time: it's located in CSG menu...

Otherwise - but I guess you already know that... I find somewhat weird that spacing of dots is not equal on the curve. Well, it would makes sense if vertex spacing was controlled by local curvature (higher curvature -> more dots).
