SOME HELP... SHAPE PROPERTIES OPEN EVERY NEW POINT CLICK
« on: March 17, 2020, 03:30:08 PM »
Hi,


would there be any way to disable the shape property window at each point click in the photo, and open only when requested the shape property window and not at each new click?


Best regards

YES please, give us a check box in the dialog and allow us to "use same properties for following shapes until tool change" or something. Having to close this dialog at every point is painful.

PLEASE Agisoft, remove tha dialog or make it optional, it is unbearable as is. Imagine after having stereo-digitized 22372 shapes. I had to downgrade to previous version to not commit  suicide.
Also, notice that the current way of rendering a point (shape) easily turns screen into a mess when there are plenty of them. You should enable cleaner rendering mode for displaying vectors in all views. (colored, please)
Also, please enable a reasonable way to toggle view of markers attached to shapes. they become totally intrusive and incompatible with visualization. What if you show them only on selected shape/s?
Best regards

Hello,

we have published pre-release version of 1.6.3, please check it. Now in the Shape Preferences dialog it is possible to switch off automatic dialog display upon shape drawing:

Hi Alexey,

Perfect, the button worked perfectly.

However, we have a difficulty with the automatic repeatability of the description.

When inserting new points in sequence and do not open the property, the description automatically replicates in the next to the previous description.

This fact made the operation time-consuming, as we need to create a point and put the description, then create a new point and delete the description to continue with the others that do not have a description.

If you have to disable as in the old versions 1.5 or earlier, or an advanced option to disable this option such as "Tweaks" would help a lot.

Another point that we noticed, after creating several points and using "Navegation" then select only one point and request properties it appears the message in gray tone "Multiple shapes selected" in the Label field and other fields without information, so you need to leave and return on property to appear correctly.

When multiple points are selected to edit the description, only the Layer is modified, however the description does not change after editing. It just changes one by one.

Best Regards,

Hi Alexey,

In version 1.6.4 the option to select the copy of the last description was very good!

However, we are having difficulty filling in the description field after the label, because pressing the TAB key advances to another unknown field and not in the sequential order of the fields. In large volumes of points this makes it extremely slow and we have to use the mouse which delays the collection of points.

A worrying situation occurs in a random and very frequent way,

The most common steps that occur are.

1. First we define the layer to be created the points and activate.

2. In the first photo we create some points no more than 10 points, we proceed to the second photo and create the 5 more points.

3. the last point created we use a shortcut key to access the properties of shapes and change the layer of the last point created.

4. At this point, the program displays the properties screen and shows that "multiple shapes" has been selected.

5. If we make the change, it will randomly change the selection, which includes different points in an understandable order.

To solve it, we have to disable the creation of the points and activate the selection mode and select the point shape that we want to change to correctly access the properties of this single point.

If the operation of accessing the properties of the last shape is using the right mouse button, it occurs less frequently compared to the use of the shortcut key.

Best Regards,

Hi Alexy,

In time, if it is possible to have an advanced field to disable the automatic counting of the points created, simply leave the voids similar to version 1.5, in large projects, we divide the activities and with more than 20k to 40k points created when joining we are having difficulties to edit because there will be two numerators, and as the program accepts a character in front and the point selector does not notice it simply loses its order creating a new sequence.

We see with a simple solution just to let the description field be the first field to be edited for when it is requested to open the shape properties instead of the label as it is in this version 1.6.4 and then press TAB to go directly to LABEL.

And about the Label, for a long time we have the difficulty of ordering after adding a new layer, when we search in more than 50 layers we find it just by typing the layer. But during the selection of points you need to create a new layer it will automatically go to the bottom of the list.

When searching for the layer in the layer field in the properties edit box, the new layers will be at the end of the list, if by manually Ok, but when we have several, the search is confusing.

What we currently do is start typing the name of the layer if it doesn't appear first we have to type the letter of the last initial layer created, example Z, and then the down or down arrow and again the initial of the newly created layer, and if the newly created one is the active layer, we have to invert the process and type the letter A, down arrow and type the desired layer, if they automatically reorder the problem would be solved.

What we have been doing is creating a doc.xml list of layers and importing into chunk replacing the shapes.zip file, but if we need a new layer, it is a huge inconvenience, especially when changing the selection for not knowing the layers.
