Description Roman Kuznetsov 2018-08-24 07:33:35 UTC
Description:
Add opportunity to snap dimension lines to shapes as connectors linked to glue points

Today, if we change size of shape, then we must change size of its dimension line manually. And if we move shapes, then we must move all dimension lines too.

I offer snap of dimension line to glue point of shapes to change size of dimension line avtomatically

For this:
1. Need add new default glue point to all corners of shapes
2. Need re-work code of dimension line to gets type of connector

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to work with many number of dimension line for many shapes


Actual Results:
We must move/resize dimension lines manually

Expected Results:
Dimension lines will be move/resize avtomatically follow shapes


Reproducible: Always

Such kind of lines would indeed be useful. Currently the file format has no means to describe them, so LibreOffice would need to implement them in its own namespace.
