Version 0.8 Release
« on: April 20, 2020, 01:47:10 PM »
What's New

The program now looks for subfolders in the "devices" folder, so you can separate devices by source or function. All the previous devices I've made have been included and moved into the "default" subfolder.

Devices can be mirrored across the X and Y axes.

The "No Texture" checkbox has been replaced with a "Raised Detail" checkbox. When unchecked, the program will automatically "flatten" the image to a single color. Pixels with a color magnitude below 50% will be set to transparent. What this means is that custom devices no longer need a "flat" image and a "detail" image.

Edit - Update 0.81
Corrected a typo in the elements dropdown.

A cool feature would be the ability to load a previous ribbon and modify it.

A cool feature would be the ability to load a previous ribbon and modify it.

More generally, it would be helpful to have the ability to work with a list of all the devices added to a ribbon and add a device in between two previously added. I've had ribbon schemes which required me to undo several steps to make the next ribbon in the scheme even though the succeeding steps were almost all the same except for an additional device at the beginning.

Saving a short .txt file with the sequence of instructions would probably complement this well and also address Erik's suggestion.
