Einhugur Plugin Releases (2023)

Maybe, depends on how many people are actually using them I guess.

I did not expect this to be high use control though as in not to many people are looking for Gauges.

What kind of Gauge are you looking for ?

Anything you’d find on older electronic test gear (e.g. analogue multimeters). In fact, an LED-look-alike digital display might also be good.

I have mentioned the Gauge Control to a client, regarding our particular project, sharing a screen shot of the example project. I jested that it might give us a fun steampunk look. But he is keeping it in mind. :slight_smile:

You know you can tune its color palette though !

After evaluating a bit then I think we will add more styling in some sort of baby steps. Since drastic changes are very slow process since its all plugin code.

So I would expect the next step with more flexible styling would be to offer optional 180 degree view instead of 90 degree. ( and then go in some incremental steps as needed).

+1 for 180 degree view

‚ÄúDashboards‚ÄĚ with dials and also linear scales seem to be all the range with senior managers wanting to keep tabs on the pulse of a large organisation, particularly with ‚Äúlow code‚ÄĚ cloud databases, though the controls available on those platforms are usually very crude, little better than a pie-chart.

I posted hotfix for the Word Plugin release from yesterday:

Version 2.5.2:
Fixed issue introduced in version 2.5 where tables would always appear at bottom of the document even if having paragraphs bellow them.
