126.96.36.199 has a new
feature in the spirit of the recent ballot layout craziness. Ian is going
to love this one.
If you hold down the
control key when dragging races and headers around the card editor, GEMS will no
longer prevent you from dragging them into and outside of the timing mark
areas. It behaves as previously without the control key
pressed. If you
think this is nuts, no one in devel disagrees with you. Just don't hold
down the control key.
Why do this? A
- Now that race lines
can be turned off individually, races/headers might have some
of their area completely devoid of artwork . This means you
can safely drag the blank part "under" the timing marks. Puerto Rico may
use this to center their ovals.
- This is an answer
to Greg's RCRs to put "this side up" arrows, instructions to print shops,
and the Declaration of Independence out in the cut mark area. Just make
headers and ctrl-drag 'em there.
- Its consistent with
allowing users to overlap races. If we allow them to overlap ovals, we
might as well allow them to mess with other verboten areas.
