Thank you for considering my suggestions!
I just quoted your responses as to not have a quote heavy post.
This is possible - I guess so you want all maps in that group resized to the same dimensions? I can do that.
Any preferences for which Key to use?
I was thinking Space Bar since I would use this feature a lot.
Already there! Right click on the palette for the menu and select Zoom and your flavour of zoomage. 50%, 100% and 200%. I can add a 400% if you wish?
Oh, very cool! I hadn't noticed this. A 400% would be pretty nice though.
About the inside corners... Check out this image I mocked up below. I used a 3x3 matrix to create the three shapes on the top image, and then manually added tiles to alter them to create the three shapes on the bottom image. I hope its obvious to spot the differences since explaining them is hard to put into words.
For Shape A, all I did was add the inside corners. To make this image, I used 4 additional tiles than the 9 that were used to create the matrix.
For Shape B, I used 8 additional tiles than the 13 previously mentioned tiles.
4 of them are the "double outside corners" and 4 are the "double inside corners"
For Shape C, I used 1 additional tile, which is the center "quad-inside corner"
I didn't mock up a Shape D since I don't have the tiles made up, but that would be 4 additional tiles for "triple-inside corners".
Im not sure where the tiles that go in these spots could be placed on the matrix. I can imagine the logic your matrix would have to use to figure out which tile to place, but building a UI for how this would look like would be tricky.
Maybe set it up like a list in a new window that the user has to click a button to open, with a checkbox to toggle "Use Extra Tiles?"
A list something like this:
(The underscores represent drag-to boxes like you have in your matrix UI now)
Single Inside Corners: _ _ _ _
Double Inside Corners: _ _ _ _
Triple Inside Corners: _ _ _ _
Quad Inside Corner: _
Double Outside Corners: _ _ _ _
I know this is quite a task and if you're not that interested in spending a ton of time to do it, that totally understandable. However, if it is easy to at least allow the Single Inside Corners like shown in Shape A, that would speed up my production immmmmmmmmensely!
Thanks again for considering my suggestings
