    Figured this one out; the image was taken with a flash. Cool. 1 down, 7 to go.

    Is meshing ("enabled for meshing") the same as reconstruction?

    Yes

    Is there a way to open multiple projects? If I try to open a new RC window it tells me RC is already open. :-(

    No at this time, its for resources allocation so people not try align one project and mesh another project and etc.
    as it would create issues with stability....

    Why does the project title disappear from the menu bar when I make the window full screen?

    Can make some screenshot if its not a problem related to windows color scheme settings...

    Why aren't control point names conserved when you export and then re-import components?

    If set names and not numbers then it should work so can easy transfer them.
    Can make screenshot of this to be sure in this ??

    Screenshots attached -- small window shows project title, maximised window does not. Brand new Windows 10 install with default settings.

    By the way, another "little thing" -- there are several misspellings in the software -- "registred" instead of "registered" and "do you realy want to" instead of "do you really want to". EDIT: also, "aproximate" under prior lens distortion should be "approximate".

    Beginning to think you guys should be paying me as your software tester :-) I should at least get a free account or pro upgrade or something...

    Hi Aaron,

    What the hell kind of color is coral!? Coral is an animal. It comes in many colors! Why not change to something like "pink" or "orange" that are actually colors?


    You should always ask women regarding colors. They perceive this other than men. Coral is animal, but also a synonym for color - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coral_(color).

    I know, I was teasing about the animal!

    Seriously though, it's a bad choice of color name. Also, the color RC uses is not coral anyway, according to Wikipedia's definition. It's pink. Hot pink. (255, 85, 161) to be specific.

    They should rename it to flamingo.

    Animals are good :) if there will be more complains on that we will reconsider renaming ;)

    Yeah, this is some good thing about MS ribbons. I'm fighting with this daily. The problem is that we do not have control over that where windows renders the window title and this is determined depending on size of gap between context ribbons and quick access bar and size of gap between context ribbon tab and [minimize][maximize][close] buttons, automatically.
    In most cases it shortens the title text to something unreadable... to get rid of that you can move QA bar below ribbon, or to add more commands to the ribbon. Then you will have enough place for the project name.

    Why doesn't the "selected input(s)" panel appear when you select an image under control points? Similarly, if I control-drag an image from under control points, I expect it to behave the same way as an image under "images" but it doesn't.

    This is because image names under control points represent actual image measurement, which is triplet [image index, x, y]. So if you select more of them, then you are selecting image measurements and not images. You can drag&drop measurements between control panels and images.

    Thanks for posting all these comments and also for finding typos, etc. Regarding the testing, the question is why our payed testers did not notice that so far!! maybe we can fire them all :) nevertheless, we will make some benefits for people which are active on our forum. We will announce that officially at some point.

    I demand that you change the colors to bonobo, frog, pig, and flamingo so as to be consistent! Actually at this point I have developed a sort of synasthesia with the numbers 1-4. When I count sheep at night to go to sleep, there's a blue sheep, a green sheep, a magenta sheep, and then an underwater sheep covered in coral tentacles.

    As for the testers, I expect they've done a great job; you can't catch everything. For the most part I've found RC easy to use and I think the interface is beautiful. I guess it probably wasn't that way several months ago.

    to get rid of that you can move QA bar below ribbon


    Like this? Still no title. It's not a big deal since I can shrink the window to see what project it is, but it was driving me crazy at first when I couldn't remember which version of the file I had open after being away.

    MS ribbons ... fighting with this


    Just re-write RC in QT and release it for linux :-)

    Wishgranter, thanks -- indeed, you're correct -- the names are transferred if you rename the component and otherwise the numbers change. So that's this one resolved.

    Another typo -- "alignment" is misspelled in the Alignment settings tooltip.

    Hi Aaron,
    cannot find that typo. Could you please snip it? Maybe it was corrected in a meantime, but just to be sure :)

    many thanks.

    Another one: "togenther." You guys should probably find a way to use a spellcheck!
