length input by adding some single segment values

Postby HornOxx » Tue Oct 15, 2019 8:41 am

Hi All - a dumb question certainly :) is it somehow possible to draw a line e.g. by simultaneous vcb-input of various known different length segments (something like: 240+65+95+180) ?

You can't draw a single continuous line by adding up segments in the Measurements window like that. I know there have been requests to be able to do math in the VCB but not yet. It does make me wonder if an extension with an alternative VCB might be possible. Seems like something that would be right up the alley of several of the Ruby gurus.

thank you - yes, that would be a banal but so convenient thing :)
