New function  point tangent to Bezier curve
Issue #981
new
Some patternmaking systems require in some situations to put a point on a Bezier curve. This point is placed on the tangent to the curve starting from a previous point.

You could accomplish this by using the “Point intersect curve & axis” tool. The tangent point is a special case for the intersection of a curve and axis… as per picture below:
Created simple curve Spl_A_A1
Created point A2
Select Point intersect curve & axis tool
Select curve Spl_A_A1
Select point A2
Swing axis until it first touches curve creating point A3And since there are 2 points of tangent of a curve and point:
Swing axis until it first touches curve creating point A4
Note that when using a curved path there may be more than 2 tangent points.

I have seen this as well, but I didn’t manage to find a way to do it. The next step would be to draw a line from point A16, touching the green curved line and stopping at Line BwBg.
I guess we are talking about the same thing.
