As you may know, we have launched a new website. You are right on it. We can now not only provide you with the latest Valentina version to download, but also support our project by purchasing our products. But we don’t want to stop there, so we want to offer you something else.
When working with Valentina files in general, and measure files in particular, there are times when restrictions, either intentional or due to software limitations, prevent the necessary changes from being made. In these cases, the solution is to edit the files manually.
At first glance, adapting measurements for Valentina doesn’t seem to cause any difficulties. But is it really?
Sooner or later, every product starts being compared with the competitors. And it seems that we, too, are slowly approaching this point. I would like to share my thoughts on this. I’d like to say right away that this is not a comparison of solutions from other manufacturers with Valentina. Rather a short commentary.
We have recently had a lot of questions from users on the subject of “How is a beginner’s video course different from a user’s guide? And which is the better choice for learning?”.
This question is controversial and needs to be considered in more detail.
This question cannot be answered unambiguously. Because, firstly, it all depends on your current level of training and knowledge of Valentina. And secondly, it depends on whether you prefer a book learning format or a video tutorial format.
Let’s explore this in more detail.
Modern versions of Windows have a built-in security system which checks that executable files are digitally signed. These signatures help identify the program’s origin and also help protect the program files from tampering. Previously, Valentina was also distributed with a developer’s signature, and now we have lost that capability. In this article, we’ll talk about why this has happened and the implications for Valentina users.
In the distant past, when the mouse had not yet been invented, interaction with the computer took place solely through the keyboard. Much time has passed since then. And systems such as Windows and Mac OS have popularised the use of the mouse to interact with the graphical interface. In today’s world, we can’t imagine using a PC without a mouse. So many programs rely on it. Valentina is no exception in this case.
However, old ideas don’t disappear, just new ones are added on top of them. So keyboard skills are just as relevant today. What separates the professional from the amateur is the ability to work with keyboard shortcuts.
