Ring View

I hope this is the right place to post this. I cannot get the ring view to show anything, just a error message that tells me that only painted rings are printable. I created a small bowl in a tornado pattern. Painted the rings. All shows up on the "Bowl View" and in the "Summery View". Yet the ring view gives me the error message noted above. I am reasonable sure it is something that I am not doing correctly, but cannot figure out what it is. I am using v17.
Thank you for the assistance.

Ron,

The whole purpose of the Ring View is to help you lay out segments for a Painted Segment vessel.

I don't see much of a need to generate a multi-page Ring View for a Tornado bowl because every ring will be identical. With a tornado bowl, you get to decide whether you want the rings to rotate to the right or to the left and so the segment numbers are meaningless. You simply lay out your segments identically for each row and then offset them to the right or to the left to achieve the look you're after.

When I return from an East Coast trip, I'll change this so that for a Tornado bowl the PDF document will be a single page that you can use to make sure your layout is correct.

Ron,

I went ahead and made the change since it I knew it wouldn't take too much time. The Ring View now prints a single page for a Tornado Bowl and you can use that page to layout the segments for every ring. On this printout, I do not print the row details since it is for every row.

You can get this build (1.1.019) from the Downloads Page.

Art. I noticed the same thing. I downloaded 1.1.01 and ran the install. When I checked within the SP software it shows 1.1.019. It could be the window where Lloyd has it posted is not wide enough for the "9".
