itable question

July 24, 2010 | 8:54 pm

Hi All,
I’m trying to create an M4L device with itable and I’m running into a probem. maybe you can help me. I like that itable has the pencil mode and the draw mode, which makes it easy to draw simple lines as well as freehand curves. The problem is that in line mode, the line automatically starts from the last point you edited. I’d like to be able to turn on line mode, and then click once to choose the beginning of the line, and once to choose the end. Does this make sense? Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks,
ben

I hear ya, the line tool is nice but it has that "sticky" feel which can be annoying. If there was a way to output the last point you edited, you could do a patch-around, but there doesn’t appear to be. Though the popup hint which shows the mouse location knows it… hmm.

How about a "forgetlasteditedpoint" message? :)
