Proposal of smart scale bar

Postby Kouichi_C_Nakamura » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:58 am

Currently, the scale bar of iviewer is not cool.

The length of the bar stays the same, and instead the number associated with the scale bar changes, often taking a weird number, like, 0.476 mm.

So far the feedback I received about this scale bar is not great.

People prefer to see a scale bar with more sensible numbers, eg. 0.500 mm or 200 µm etc.

Could it be possible to write code to find the right length of the scale bar, eg, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000, 5000,...?

This might take a few milliseconds away, but the user experience might be much better.
