Ever since I started using Templot, 10 years ago, I have always used F7, move and join, with snap on, to join templates together.
I have noticed from time to time Martin make comments about why people use it and say it's only for beginners and it always puzzled me.
About 4 weeks ago I had a "Eureka" moment I found; P, Peg/Align Tools > B, snap the control template onto background template > ........
It is so useful, I wonder why it took so long to find.
I think the reason is; nobody talks about it, it is just not obvious but Martin, it is brilliant.

Did you find that from the same thread as me, Godfrey?

It's a brilliant tool, isn't it? Even now I'm still learning Templot. For days I've been working on putting the whole of Whitby into Templot and finding it didn't fit. Thanks to this feature I discovered in minutes it was down to lots of small barely perceptible mis-alignments of small groups of templates. Snapped them together and it fitted perfectly.

Martin's a clever chap alright.

Derek,
I can't remember how I came across it. I think I was looking for something and just tried it. How many other people don't know about it.
I wonder what the best way is to advertise these features.

Hi Godders,

I just don't know the answer to that. I tend to assume that "everyone knows" about stuff that has been in Templot from the beginning, but of course they probably don't.

I have just now discovered that I made a video showing the notch-linking functions less than 12 months ago, but I had completely forgotten about it, and I can't even remember making it:

 https://flashbackconnect.com/Movie.aspx?id=MTd0T1Pp4DIGd5QfbfBqQw2

I must have posted somewhere about it at the time, surely? :?

Martin.

Hi Martin

Thank you for that video. I have never seen it before but I do know everything that is in it, now.

Like you my memory is getting worse and I am at least 7 years in advance of you, I think.

I managed perfectly alright without the notch linking functions, it was just so nice to discover them and irritating that I had missed them for so long.

One thing I wasn't doing is criticising you, as I am sure you know.

Another thing I never do, is travel anywhere without Templot.

It has been to many corners of this country and a lot of the world.

Thank you

Godders

Hi Godders,

I didn't think you were criticising me!

But I am wondering what other long-standing functions in Templot folks might not be aware of.

For example, this old page also contains details of the slewing functions:

 https://templot.com/martweb/gs_geometry.htm

They all still work exactly as then, and very useful too, but I can't remember mentioning or explaining them in a long while. And they are not currently explained anywhere else as far as I can find.

It's a worry that I'm now getting in such a muddle with the docs and web pages that I can no longer remember what I have done and haven't done. :?

cheers,

Martin.

Hello Martin,
The features of Templot are so many that it is impossible to remember them all. It is such that one finds things only by looking to do a certain procedure through past postings or searching.Personally that is one of its attractions for me.
There is a way to do something I just cannot remember it.
It always comes through with an elegant solution.
Thank you and regards
Trevor:)

If I forget how to do something,I refer back to the videos and that normally gets me out of trouble, even though some are a bit long in the tooth now, a bit like me!

Cheers

Phil.
