Unfortunately, it seems like Konstantin is not able to find much time lately ( its been almost 3 months : ( ). I believe these reports were great for highlighting the work being done in the development of Synfig (since I dont think most users really checkout that sort of stuff from Github).
So how about maybe we continue with these reports until Konstantin is able to find time again ? I could volunteer to do (or help in doing) them, and then maybe it would just need to be reviewed by someone else. I don’t really think it should take much time do so : )
Hey Mohamed! That would be absolutely awesome! Thank you so much.
Yes, last months I am completely busy with new project (it is also related with animation/open-source and involves Synfig, but I can’t disclose much details at the moment).
So, your help with the reports is much appreciated!
I have document in Google Docs where I was drafting all reports. If you will continue the same way, then I will be happy to review your reports before publishing.
Fixed pasting of external exported valuenodes (#2086)
Many of our users know that Synfig has a powerful capability to “Export” any parameter of a layer. This is like saving a parameter’s value in a variable, which can be linked to other parameters. And that variable is stored in the same Synfig file, where the layer exists. But what happens when you copy a layer with an exported parameter to another file? In all previous versions that would result in the situation, when copied layer references exported value from its original file. This was non-obvious for users and such external references might lead to file corruption when the original file (the one where the layer was copied from) is deleted. Now this is not the case anymore! With the new feature introduced by PR #2086 Synfig now shows a dialog when the user tries to paste a layer with exported parameter. In this dialog user can define how to handle the exported value - it can be copied to the destination file or can remain as a reference to the source file. Also this dialog shows which file each exported value belongs to and allows to rename exported values.
