Hello, (I'm not sure I'm in the right place!)

I want to share with you my SJ Add DC Attribut plugin.


Sj Add DC Attribute is a plugin for Sketchup.

It is used to apply one or more common attributes to a selection.

  • Attributes can be entered, or taken from a list of favorite attributes or present in one of the components of the selection.
  • The dialog box is now in HTML, animated by java-script.
  • Automatic translation according to local Sketchup settings.
    Languages ​​supported English and French.



The plugin is free, the code is not encrypted and commented in French to help French Ruby beginners.
You can download the plugin:
on my site : https://www.sketchup.simjoubert.com/my-plugins/sj-add-dc-attribute.html
or on the Sketchucation plugin store :https://sketchucation.com/plugin/2537-sjadddcattribute

Thank you for your feedback

Simon

Hello
A new version is online and fixes bugs in CSS, which hid the start of lists that had more than 20 attributes.

Do you find this plugin useful? Does the interface suit you?

Thanks for your feedback.

I like the concept but the UI needs more simplifying.



The native DC dialog packs more interaction into a smaller area and that helps to tell the user what they are editing/adding and where.

Your dialog, even when sized at its smallest, still requires scrolling.

Add tooltips to your inputs, buttons etc on hover to describe the intention.

Thanks for your feedback.
Comparatively, I have more info to display, but it is true that the box could be more compact. Good idea for the tooltips, even if it involves translation work. I'm starting with Bootstrap and I'm going to refine the ergonomics.

Here is a GIF of the plugin with its adaptive display depending on the width of the dialog box. And with long lists of attributes.

Hello Sketchuppers!

I am happy to announce the release of version 0.3.0.
I look forward to your comments and suggestions for improvement.

Have a nice weekend

New in version 0.3.0

  • Improved interface to be more compact
  • Added tooltips and help popovers
    An option enables or disables tooltips.
    This preference is saved in the template and editable in the form.
  • New option list management
    You can import option lists from a CSV file.
    Options can be reordered.
    Error detection if a label is empty
  • Improved Value/Formula input field
    A double click on the "value/formula" field toggles the display of a multiline input area.
    If you fill in the "Definition" or "Summary" attribute, a toolbar appears. It allows you to add HTML layout tags in one click.
    If you enter a formula, detection of errors on the number of closing and opening parentheses, as well as on the number of quotation marks.
  • Improved instance management.
    Modifications can be applied to all instances sharing the same definition, or only to instances present in the selection.
    If the attribute does not exist, it is created for all instances. If the option set is only on selected instances, then only those will receive a value. The definition and the rest of the instances will receive a null (empty) value.
  • New condition "Do not modify if existing!"
    Possibility to activate the condition by clicking on the field label button.
    If the condition is activated, the label is framed in yellow.
    This allows targeted modification of attributes and meta-attributes.

    • Example, activating the condition on the Name label
      If the attribute exists, do not modify
    • Example, activating the condition on the "Value/Formula" label
      If the attribute has a specified value, do not modify the value
    • Example, activating the condition on the "Formulaunits" label
      If the attribute has a specified unit, do not modify the unit

  • Coupling of the condition "Do not modify if existing!" and case management
    The condition is checked on the definition and not on the instance.

  • Attribute saving and creation progress dialog box.

Automatic translation according to local Sketchup settings.

Language supported English and French.

Hey
I use Profile Builder 3
1. I draw the element in the direction of the red line
2. I cut the element with the section tool
3. After that, I use Add DC to add an attribute
4. The element turns, in the direction of the green line.

But
... If I draw the PB3 element in the direction of the green line, the element does not rotate.

But ++
I normally draw a group or component
The program works flawlessly

The program is useful and I found many uses for it.
I hope there is a solution to this

thank you

Hi Simon! I recently discovered you plugin and it's brilliant!!! Thanks a lot!
Although I'd like to suggest you a couple upgrades, to improve usability even more.

1. First thing, the possibility to save a set of favourite attributes to be used in other skp models. This is very convenient when you have a set of fixed attributes you always want to load for any of your components. Could be useful to name the set so the plugin can load the relative attributes

2. Second thing: the possibility to add to the selection a set of attributes (the thing we saved at step 1) so that the plugin can import a number of attributes without having to manually select them one by one.

Tell me what you think! Thanks again a lot!

Hello Pibuz

I am delighted to read that this plugin is useful to you! :D
Your suggestions join the evolution plan of the plugin for the next major version. With the introduction of group of favorites:
  • The import-export of its groups.
  • One-click addition of an attribute group to a selection.

We will have to be a little patient, but this is a reasonable objective.
In the meantime, I'm counting on you to promote the plugin, and buy me a coffee! ;)

Have a nice week end
