General Discussions

For anything and everything that doesnt fit in other categories.


For example, if I create an SVG and use an externally referenced font file, and if that font files has 100 glyphs, but my SVG only uses 10 of the glyphs, do the 90 unused glyphs gets stripped out of the font file before Base64 encoding? This is essentially my work flow with some other tools, doing the steps manually. Results are good but the process is tedious. Looking for a pure C program to portably compile on Android (Termux, Clang, NDK, BIONIC), Windows, and Linux, install as a Node.js package, and automate the process. I may have to write it myself and release as open source.

I recently found out about vecta and after browsing through the documentation I'm wondering if I would be able to create a "integrated" UI inside a vecta io board. Either fully handwritten in HTML, CSS and JavaScript or if there already is support for this via iframe or such.

The plugin examples that are provided seem very simple although I understand this is the beta phase I was looking to do something similar to the already integrated vecta layers functionality.

Where I could either add my own add to something which could represent a list of board objects same as in layers or some other functionality. And then handle these objects in a small UI pop-up such as the layers pop-up.

So generally my question is, could I technically with the current documentation and support develop something similar to current vecta layers in the form of a plugin? If so could you please link me to the part of documentation that has this, because I couldn't find this part.

thank you.

I want to use the formula to set the shape.fill property depending on a named shape on my drawing.

The goal is to quickly modify the fill of many elements in the drawing by defining a new color to an item with the name "alpha",

My idea was to do this ...

var shapeDefinition = $.shape('alpha');

if(shapeDefinition != null )
        this.fill = shapeDefinition.fill;
        this.fill = 0;

But that is not saveable in the formula field. There is neither an error message nor a status message.
