Switching to Rectangular Notation ignores previous sizing
« on: October 04, 2017, 06:03:50 pm »
When switching to Rectangular Notation, the shapescript will ignore the existing diagram object sizing (especially if larger than the default) and reset to the default size specified for Rectangular Notation.

If object sizing is  Ox×Oy and the default non-Rectangular (Icon) Notation sizing is Ix×Iy and the Rectangular Notation sizing is Rx×Ry, then it could be argued that if at the switchover, if Ox = Ix and Oy = Iy, then they should be switched to Rx and Ry respectively.  However, if they are not the default values, then the object sizing should remain Ox×Oy.

My user found it quite annoying that where they had large object sizes, typically encompassing other objects, on switchover, the sizing became very small and they had to resize.
