Topic: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Hello

I have tried the Appimages, but prefer to have the application installed.

Is it possible to install 0.8 stable from flatpak?

In the screenshot you can see I selected the stable release, but the 0.9-dev is installed.

Hi,
my repo is only for devel version.
You could try this :

flatpak install --user https://dl.flathub.org/build-repo/45176/org.qelectrotech.QElectroTech.flatpakref

@Scorpio

I have been playing around with version 0.8.

What I have noticed is the dynamic text fields do not rotate with the symbols like in 0.7. I have attached a screencast of 0.7.

What I have noticed is the dynamic text fields do not rotate with the symbols like in 0.7. Please view attached a screencast of 0.8. This happens on my Arch and W10 machines with 0.8

Is this by design as I see that 0.9 does the same?

@Xenotek
thanks for your video, I think I remember dynamic text fields can't rotate when element rotates to simplify the code.

Maybe Joshua can clarify the explanation.

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Element texts have a new “Keep visual rotation” feature.
This means that when an element is rotated, the text follows the rotation in x.y however the _visual_ angle remains the same.

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Ok, I can see when i click on the text in the diagram editor that the option is available in the properties. This is checked/enabled by default.

Is it possible to uncheck/disable by default?

My problem is that I have many symbols that use dynamic text for terminal names. This enables me to rename the terminals as I need. For example I have created VFD's with limited terminals to keep the size small. Then I can rename the terminals as I need them. Otherwise I will have various versions of the same VFD in the collection for different terminal combinations.

I can go and edit all the symbols to use plain text, but that is a lot of work.

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Hello xenotek,
I see in the element editor there is not the properties "keep visual rotation" (I forget it).
If I add it, then you can edit your element and enabled (or not) this property, this will solve your problem ?

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

@joshua

This should solve the problem for new elements yes.

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Feature added, wait for next build to test.

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

Thanks Joshua

Once built, will I be able to install from 

Re: Arch package for 0.8 stable?

@xenotek : If you want Flatpak package use my 0.9 repo to get this new feature.
You can go there without worries, 0.9-dev work very well.
