I would also find very convenient to have the passmark also available even if there is no sewing margin.
But I'm facing another problem:
I try to understand the passmark tool and check its usability in my case.
During my process, passmark (or notch) is mainly added at the end of the patterns making, as a mark to help the stitching process.
I would expect the passmark to be neutral regarding my geometry, but when I add them later, with the node tool, and marke them as passmark, they become part of my detail geometry and therefore, change the geometry.
See the file enclosed: I would like my piece1bis to have the shame rounded shape than my piece1, but with the passmark A1A5=A2A3 and A1A6=A1A2+A2A3. Is it possible,according to that process?
If not, I see that you recommand to use internal path. I also tried this option in this file. But this is damn long to do. Is there a faster way?
See the file enclosed.
