WFS Feature Requests Q1 2024

if you use another watcfaces app you can see it’s possible : Facemaker and Watchface Designer.
If there was a text shadow we wouldn’t have to deal with bitmaps, the same goes for character spacing. For me.

You can get shadow fonts there are many free ones just do a google search
or
make a copy of the text box and off set it slightly and change the bottom text box black or grey color.

I’m not sure it is a good idea to use shadow fonts in user set complications they might not work well for all of them. I’d only use them in my custom components.

I don’t want to search on Google, if possible, I think it would be more useful if WFS had this feature. You cannot find a shaded version of every font suitable for the design.

@DeliFani
I will add this when I submit the feature requests

thanks for this kindness

Add a new type of complication slot boundary so that we can have a arc type slot bound.

Here is watch face format guide.

Request: Full support of java.time.format

What I actually wanted to do, but couldn’t figure out a way to do in the current WFS is getting the timezone offset to display in the ISO 8601 format. Currently, the [TMZN_OFS] tag only allows for a format like “-7.5”, what the ISO 8601 format would look like is “-07:30”.

Naturally, if WFS were to support the java.time.format, then I could have just used the “X” symbol.

I think this has been reported as a bug but please submit it as a bug as a Developer Support Request.

Hi Ron, Nico from Bergen’s here.

It would be great having interactive Variables like in Facer.

For example, you touch in a elipse (button) and it affecs the properties of another object that uses the same Var_#

Take a look: https://help.facercreator.io/hc/en-us/articles/4412565649435-Interactive-Variables-Layers

Best and thanks for your help.

Best, Nico

That has been my number 1 request for many years. If a watch can keep track of all the complication settings, styles and other things that a user changes there should be some way to store a user variable.

Yes those were on my wish list since GWD. But to me it looks like they were protecting the Facers business model, where this sells as one of premium features.

I would have one small request, could there be please added a description somewhere to the opacity field?
It is in unnamed field next to the color code and every now and then new people are asking same question about where to find it.

I consider this a bug myself. It is not obvious and the documentation is lacking except in a blog that isn’t referenced anywhere in the WFS section.

I suggest not using “+” and “*” for logical expressions

Instead use || and &&

As in confusing when “+” and “*” are used as logical signs or addition or multiplication

@Knightwing
It is Boolean Algebra

Is group and small box masking possible? :thinking: @r.liechty_SDR ?

You can’t group a complication slot because it has it’s own masking (the Slot Bound component)

See this Blog by Jakia on Masking.

But i mention before raw wff allows masking in complication group. So its not impossible to implement
