Yep - as a fellow software developer - that’s what we get paid for.
Actually, in this very particular case I don’t see anything mutually exclusive.
TBH there are bunch of things that could be done that would really improve the whole thing. Colour coding, matching colours in thumbnails to colours on screen, better indicators in the thumbnails of what is doing what and in what state it is in, being able to pick items within groups.
Then there are more advanced tools like auto-nesting, auto-adjust to margins, being able to rotate numerically for accurate registrations. Being able to assign colours to cut/score settings either within the SVG or as a “recipe” and about a gazillion other things I can think of.
While I’m glad to see the bunch of stuff that came out along with the Beta Premium, I do think there is some core functionality/usability issues that should be addressed first.
