Pretty simple request for a feature:
right click any circle or object, “Convert to DRILL point” option - always make the center of the circle the center of the drill point, once converted remove the vector from the document.
Note- the whole point of this feature is to be able to select MULTIPLE objects and convert them all into drill points
Some problems with the existing system:
1- no way to convert “loose points” in an svg into drill points (loose points are simply ignored)
2- no way to export something with a “representation” of where a drill point should go (such as crosshairs in an svg)
3- no easy (nor sane) way to set up drill points when dealing with 100+ holes to drill and the center accuracy of those drill points is critical to the task at hand
4- no “snapping” ability, where as the center of the drill marker would “snap” to the center of the svg hole
5- no X/Y grid system where the known coordinates of drill points could be typed in
While it is possible to add drill points “one at a time” into a document, then drag them by human hand “near” a circle, and then using the “alignment tools” to center the drill point onto the circle this process is a colossal abuse of the sacred and limited time a human has to be alive… the amount of time it takes and its lack of efficiency make this method undesirable (at best)
Ideal Situation resulting from feature: should just be able to “select all” , right click “convert to drill point” and be done.
