Hi!

I have been longing for some way of making the creation of Paths and Clipping more precise in Spine.
And my proposal for a hopefully easy solution is to allow the vertices to snap on integer values while editing and creating new ones. Adding a small tooltip to the pointer would allow showing the x and y coordinates as we move the mouse around would.

In addition to this it would be very useful to be able to select one or more vertices and type in their x or y values directly.
This type in box could be either the normal transform or a small specific one on the edit path toolbox.

Today when not inside the edit mode there is the possibility of using the transform tools rotate,translate & scale but only on the entire path or mask at the same time. My sugestion is that if one or more vertices are selected the changes made typing in values would only affect those selected vertices.

Hi, thank you for your detailed suggestions!

Actually, adding a snapping feature has been already on our roadmap, and I added a link to this post on the issue ticket:
https://github.com/EsotericSoftware/spine-editor/issues/554

Allowing numeric input for vertices is also on our roadmap:
https://github.com/EsotericSoftware/spine-editor/issues/77

Thank you so much!

I had seen the first ticket, but since it did not specify if it would be snapping on object level or sub-object level I thought it best to add my own suggestion.
But the one about numeric input I had missed entirely so now I'm subscribing to those both issues and look forward to seeing some news about them.=)

Wish I could help making these a reality since it is the two things I'm missing in my daily work with Spine (apart from the import of image sequences but luckily that is already on it way)

I'm sorry if my previous reply seemed like I was saying you didn't need to add your suggestion because we already have tickets for them! Even if we already have issues on GitHub for it, it is valuable for us to know that there are various use cases and how many people want that feature, so please do not hesitate to share with us your opinions.

In my opinion, I also think that both snapping and numerical input for vertices are much needed and hope that they will be implemented soon!
