Dragging the Pie Handles

Recommended Posts



Loving the 1.5 beta btw.


Anyway - when dragging the pie handles, the start, end and total angles are shown as integers, when they in fact aren't. So... I first drag all the handles for all the pies, then I have to manually rewrite all the angles to get their rounded values.


This is tedious, and .. quite frankly a bit silly.


I think you should either show the angles as floats when I drag the pie handles, or you should show them as integers, but then also make the pie snap to whole angles. As it stands, I cannot (necessarily and easily) snap two pies together using the handles.


The screenshot shows two pies with what appears to be the same angles - but obviously, there is a gap there.




PS: I never though I would write in a forum about snapping pies together.

If you need it to be precise, you could type the angles into the context toolbar.  That will give precise results.


We could show decimal places for the angles.  Most people would enter angles in whole degrees though.  When editing on the page, this allows a very precise amount of control.  Whatever precision we show, it'll ever be as precise as editing the positions on the shape itself.
