Hello john!

I don't understand, I'm trying, desperately, to respond since your first message but my answers don't appear!! I created an account but it didn't work too, I used another e-mail address but not working too!! :( I tried to response through me e-mail also, but nothing... (Am I doing something wrong??)

So I'm starting a new discussion... I hope it will work. Here my previous responses:

Your 1st message:

Hello john,

Many thanks for your answer! Your questions are perfect, I was not sure to be intelligible :)

• Yep, exactly: specify the lengths and then see them rotated at random angles. But for the texts, the better would be to specify small angles (in order to read them correctly, whatever the composition)
• Maybe yes if it's possible to guarantee that elements would no overlap?
• Yes exactly, an invisible rectangular bound :)
• Apart from the fact that texts should be read correctly (so, small angles of rotation), the lengths of the line segments should be always the same and the rectangular bound, I don't see others constraints (zillion is perfect :)
• Yep, I was thinking about a frame node and export a range of SVG frames.

PS reaction: oh yes definitely! It reminds me of the Japanese Tokonoma which is a space within the house in which items are displayed in a certain manner for artistic appreciation (a house function that we don't have here in Europe!). Nodebox is perfect to reproduce, sometimes, this unintentional concinnity of things :)

Your 2nd message:

Thank you so much John, that's amazing and it was exactly what I was trying to do!

I will go deeply in your file to understand how it was done. It seems that you didn't received my previous mail with my answers?

I just see your new message! I really don't understand why nobody can't see my answers...Hope you will see these messages this time!

Best and thank you again!

    Hi DRun,

    My apologies! We can see your comments now in the original discussion.

    For some reason the system marked your earlier comments as spam. I have no idea why this happened. This has happened to other people in the past, but only rarely.

    Thanks for your comments. Glad my solution was useful.
