Variable Text is coming


(Oz) #1

The Variable Text feature in LightBurn is ready for user testing. If you do work that uses serial numbers, mailing lists, date stamps, etc, I’d love to have your feedback. If you’re interested in trying / testing it, PM me or reply to this thread and I’ll give you access to the beta build that’s been posted.

Hi Oz,
I would like to try this new feature for a small project with approx. 40 names sign for a birthday party.

Thanks for your work to make LB better and better.

with my best regards
Bernd

Hi, I really like to test this feature, because I have to engrave 400 serial numbers on stainless steel plates, and I hope this feature helps me to save a little time.

@bernd.dk - You already have access to the Beta group where the new build is posted. @Gee - You’ve been added.

Look for the category “LightBurn Beta Testers” here in the forum for the 0.9.05 builds announcement for the download links and documentation.

I’d like to try this out as well!


(Blake Bartlett) #6

Does this work by letting you set your own variables, and perhaps an interval that they increase or decrease by each burn?


(Oz) #7

Close - The docs are posted here: https://github.com/LightBurnSoftware/Documentation/blob/master/VariableText.md

It will do what you say, and quite a bit more (though I have increment only, no decrement).


(Eddie R Sinclair) #8

I could certainly use serial numbering.


(CJ Morin) #9

I would like to try it out.


(Oz) #10

@CJ.Morin, @ESINCLAIR, @loather - You’re all added to the beta group, and will now be able to see the release notes and download links.
