Version 2.x is coming .....

Language translators, and proofreaders needed.

I did the German (de) and Spanish (es) files, and they need proofing. (It's been 35 years since I took Spanish in high school, and I only 'dabble' in German when doing genealogy research.)

The files need to be Unix line endings (EOL) and UTF-8 encoded. They are named "basic_utf8_XX.hash" and "debug_utf8_XX.hash", where XX is replaced by the lowercase language code. (ie: 'en', 'es', 'pl', 'fr', etc...)

The plugin will "auto" find these files, or the user can choose a specific lang from those that are present. (In 'en' mode, the hash files are not actually loaded... as the Ruby code knows what the English strings are.)

<----<<<< PM me if you'd like to do a certain Language translation, or proofread/correct the 'de' or 'es' files.

If a debug hash file is not available for a certain language (but the UI strings in a basic hash file are present,) then the UI will be in that local language, and console output will be in English (if the user has turned it ON.)
So... the priority is on the 'basic' hash files, in order to show the UI elements in the local language.

replaceable parameters
%s will be replaced by a number, like: 34
'%s' will be replaced by an entity flag, like: '#<Sketchup::Face:0x624452c>'

words.txt

NOTE! The above file, and the hash file in the next post, will be used with ver 2.x,... they do NOT work with ver 1.0 (if that's why y'all are downloading, but not volunteering to translate.)

    OK.. here's the basic hash template file:

    The 'XX' in the name needs to be replaced with a 2 char. language code.
    Within the file, change the "XX" hash values to the local translation.

    Please use parenthesis ( ) as I have, and punctuation periods, or '...' where I have, in the translations.
    Also repeat the use of capitalized words, as they are in the English keys.

    The %s params can be moved in the translated strings, to where they are more appropriate for the particular language.

    basic_utf8_XX.hash.txt




    Here is the template file for the debug strings.

    The technical terms should match those in the localized editions of Sketchup.

    debug_utf8_XX.hash.txt

          Thanks go to Tomot, for knocking out a first edition of the basic Polish 'pl' hash file !!

          UPDATE: We will need a proofreader, who's first language is polish.

                  I have translated the word "limit" by "limite" in French : must or not ? (I suppose yes :)

                  Not yet tested :oops:
                  you must rename them ...utf8_fr.hash.txt I suppose?

                    Looks good... Thank you.

                    But... we need the Plugin Description in Francais, Si vous plaît:

                    "Adds some useful tools within SketchUp, like Hide / Show entities and layers, Freeze / Unfreeze for components, and Show / Unfreeze all."

                    Combination of Google & Microsoft Translators:

                    "Ajoute quelques outils utiles dans SketchUp, comme Cacher / Montrer des entités et des calques, Gel / Dégel pour des composants, et de Montrer / Dégeler tous."

                    Sound OK ??

                      OK.. thanks Pilou ... got and updated the file.

                      FEI (For Everyone's Information): I finally quit "fiddling" and sent Dana the "FreezeTools" ver 2.0.0 package, so he can have a first look. He'll likely put the package up on Github, until we are satisfied, that there are no major issues. Then he or I, will put the package on the EXTENDSketchup site.

                      Known "to do":
                      1. Reformat and expand the Help html file.
                      2. Tweak the "All" commands so they are correctly walking the nested groups / components, and performing their tasks the way they should.
                      3. Make sure if possible we do not have strange behavour during Undo and Redo operations.

                          First of all, the Active Layer cannot be hidden, so if you expected that, it will not happen.

                          Isolate Layer seems to work OK in my v2.0.0 ...

                          I had sent it to Dana for his approval, but he had just started a new job, and was heavily working on the ExtendSketchup plugin... so nothing has happened.

                          Dana.. how about if we have TIG and/or ThomThom take a look ??

                            If you have v1... zip downloaded from the direct link, then it doesn't contain the begin..rescue..end protection of the newer version that you can download manually from the site that is linked to :?
                            However, as even this could also jump out of the layer manipulation loop prematurely you can fix the tool's code thus...

                            Edit the Utilities.rb file in the SU_Utils subfolder, using Notepad or a similar plain text editor like Notepad++...
                            Use its 'Find and Replace' tool to change the two lines of code that say
                            l.visible = false
                            with this
                            l.visible = false unless l == @model.active_layer
                            This will stop you trying to make the active layer invisible which is disallowed...
                            Save it and restart Sketchup.
                            Now the two layer tools that try to switch layers 'off' should work without errors...

                            Ishboo,

                            I use this utility alot with large projects and it no longer works with sketchup 8.0.15158. Could you please check why it does not load? Was there a change in the sdk that conflicts with your ruby scrpit?

                            Many thanks,

                            David

                            Hi David, I will look into and get back to you. I've been working on re-writing the application recently. Will update!

                            I've finished a new release of the plugin. I've renamed it to VisTools so it's not so confusing and ambiguous.

                            So you are settling on "IntrepidBear" as your toplevel namespace and filespace, then ?

                              Hi Dana, nice clean set of Utilities.. well done and thank you on behalf of everyone who has downloaded it!!

                              I had a think about the Isolate Entitles: its great to be able to isolate something particularly in a large model when you want to just work on that specifically however it would is just as important to be able to revert back to the entities that were visible. The same applies to the Hide Entities tool: mostly I would think that once you've finished with the hiding what you need you'd want the option to revert back....


                              Just a thought

                              Thank you again. :thumb:

                              Glad you like the tool!

                              If I understand correctly, you're asking for the ability to "unhide all" which is actually a button on the menu, so you should be able to do that already. I apologize if I'm misunderstanding what you're looking for.

                              Thanks for the reply, Dana.
                              I see you have an 'unhide all' botton in the toolset but what I was thinking was if I isolate selected entities I would like to then go back to what I had shown before I did so, not necessarily unhiding all.
