_MeaningForwards/Backwards placement
« on: July 22, 2021, 05:45:18 pm »
Metaclass or stereotype. That is the question. How about both? If those two (and likely a few more) properties could be respected from both sources? With the metaclass taking precendence? Wouldn't that be cool? So I could (still) have a general metaclass used by multiple stereotypes and define these properties therein. And for a single stereotype I could overwrite them with some individual setting.

What are dreams for: being shattered?

I don't recall (getting old, y'know). But I'll send that request. Probably futile but hope dies last.

It was buried in... Custom MDG _UCRect appears not to work

But it DOES seems like a good way out of a questionable design issue.
