Issue #181 resolved
Roman Telezhynskyi repo owner created an issue

New standard:

  • Have reserved measurements names that program can translate.
  • Have very simple structure for measurement <m name="" value="" description="">.
  • If program will find known name she will translate it.
  • Change dialog creation list of measurements.
  • File can contain only several measurements instead of all list that we know (support).
  • Allow don't use measurements file at all.
  • Canonical path to individual measurements file.
  • Fix path to standard measurements file if pattern file was moved.

    Here is the latest measurement graphic as of 2015/07/24 Half arcs were added in Group D (D26 - D41). Half widths were added in Group F (F8, F9, F10, F11) and Group G (G5). Groups A, O and P were reorganized. This is now complete for the pattern systems that have been reviewed (54 systems). If anyone has additions please let me know. The measurements in green are more accurate when calculated from other measurements. measurement-body-diagram_20150704_2_50dpi.png
