    When I changed how the Vertical Spacers were created, the code needed to be changed so that the Segment Edge Length would take the Spacers into consideration.

    The Segment Edge Length (S.E.L.) now is reduced for each row in which a spacer exists.

    PLEASE NOTE: The Spacer is a piece of wood with parallel sides. This means that it is simply glued to one angled edge of each segment in that row. Since this piece of wood is angled, the value you assigned to the spacer is adjusted for the angle based on the number of segments in that row so if you have specified a spacer width .25", for example, the actual reduction of the S.E.L. will be more than .25".

    I hate to ask, but what is still on your list?

    Just so you know, in asking this question, I am not committing to doing any of the things on your list.
    :p

    Some feedback...
    Palette pick button changed to pull down list - no problem
    Paint touch pad enabled - shouldn't be too difficult
    Profile and Plan category add “No Category” - shouldn't be too difficult
    Profile and Plan category add “Imported” imported items get added to imported category - no problem
    Bowl view fits entire window - likely to be difficult. Increasing the size of the palette effects the users of all screen resolutions. Enlarging it on a high-res monitor makes it unusable on a lower (768 dpi) monitor. Shifting to dynamically setting window sizes makes my teeth itch. Not a good sign.
    Vertical Spacers only work with feature ring, add to painted or plain bowl - Since I've never seen a painted segment bowl or a tornado bowl with spacers, I'm goint to have to be convinced this is worth the penalty in adding complexity to the interface. I'm not currently convinced.
    Add save file name to plans - no problem
    Moving profile points above or below window make profile un-editable - no problem
    Add save file name to Rings PDF - no problem
    Be able to multiple sold rings on top - sounds like a great plan for Woodturner PRO
    Painted added to bowl with feature ring - BIG effort, but is on the list.

    So I see 8 out of your 11 that I can and will do. That's a lot better than I was expecting.
    No work on this will be done until the newsletter has been out for a few weeks. It is ready, as is the mailing list and I'll send it out as soon as I get back from NYC.

    Thanks!

    I'll check them off the list as you get the complete.

    There were a lot more but you did those
