Currently, the Status Bar displays
  • stitch count
  • coordinations & length and angle (of current needle point)
  • stitch type and setting
  • current object
  • auto fabric

Can we have trim count on it?
To my knowledge, currently, to show the total number of trims, I will need to enable Design Information, which is a tab and takes up screen estate.

And to further optimise the available space for users with wide display, can we make the Status Bar more readable by, say, adding description and units?

(screenshot of my Status Bar)

I would suggest:
total: 1,997 stitches    7 trims    8 objects    current point: X=-3.70mm Y=14.70mm Length=15.16mm Angle=104.13° (absolute/relative)    Satin Auto 90%   (fabric)
If there's enough space (such as wide display), I think adding description and units will help understanding. When the monitor is not wide enough (or EmbroideryStudio's window is not wide enough), we can drop out additional description and units.

P.S. the degree (°) symbol can be easily typed by option + shift + 8.

Thanks

Antony,

Can I get your opinion on the Design info panel? At present, this shows the number of trims plus:

- Colors
- Stops
- Colorways
- Sequins
- Bling objects
- etc.



Would this suffice to get the info you need instead of adding some new information to the current panel?

Pretty much all the basic information necessary that I can think of now.

If you want my opinion on further improving...
Please list both units for dimensions:
e.g. Height: 68.5mm (2.7in)
(Reason: sometimes customer specify dimension in inches, but I don't feel like to change my settings just for that.)

Since we are on the topic of adding information on Status Bar, apart from Trim Count, I would also like to see information on selected object(s).

Earlier I suggested something like (italic text for monitor wide enough):
total: 1,997 stitches 7 trims 8 objects
---
current point: X=-3.70mm Y=14.70mm Length=15.16mm Angle=104.13° (absolute/relative)
Satin Auto 90% (fabric)

(--- indicates section break)

I would like to suggest add:
selected: 250 stitches 0 trims
It shows up when there are objects being selected

So the Status Bar would look something like (italic text for monitor wide enough):
total: 1,997 stitches 7 trims 8 objects
---
selected: 250 stitches 0 trims
---
current point: X=-3.70mm Y=14.70mm Length=15.16mm Angle=104.13° (absolute/relative)
Satin Auto 90% (fabric)

I believe information on selected object(s) can be useful, when we are focused on certain area(s)/object(s) of the design. Thanks.
