Snapshots / Re: FET-6.22.0 snapshot available
June 15, 2024, 01:34:09 PM
That is already possible in old FET versions.

search in the css file this:
caption {


and modify to this:
caption {
 font-size: x-large;
 font-weight: bold;

Well, it was only fast, since we (or better you) didn't change the GUI. That is still old (short) only; but I think that is very fine. We changed only html-timetables and print; so tables that are for other users. So for example also not the statistics, but I think that is also fine)
And also because you are working without a break. Other guys work only max. 10 hours per day. I hope a few guys will donate for this work.

Maybe view some of my videos about FET and speed: (Speed up by CPU) (Speed up by Multi Core) (Speed up by software) (Speed up by software) (Speed up by time limit)

The problem is that we need to inform the users about that.
Maybe with something like a kickstarter project. Or like Wikipedia is collection money. Sadly most guys use this software only a few times per year and probably won't notice it.
Maybe a thread where we describe the feature and print the collected money for that TODO so far, so everybody can see it more detailed.
hmm... I don't know.
Just doing nothing doesn't help. Most guys sadly don't donate :-(

I fear there will no single person that is able to spent so much.
We should think about collecting a lot of small values to get the same sum.

If you want to know some more about the speed, then maybe whatch some of my videos: (Speed up by CPU) (Speed up by Multi Core) (Speed up by software) (Speed up by software) (Speed up by time limit)

I must admit, that i am bad in the GUI stuff.
It is always a bit difficult to estimate how long we need to code it.
Sometimes I can code 100 lines of code in a few minutes and everything is running without a single bug.
But sometimes only a single line of code can take hours.

Liviu, what do you estimate in this case?
June 09, 2024, 09:47:31 PM
You mean implemented into the FET interface.
Yes, that must be coded. Sadly a boring task. I implement features that I need myself or that make fun if i code them. But I don't have time to code other stuff. Sadly I must work to earn money, so in fact I also haven't unlimited time to code.
But yes, every time if there are guys donating this project, then it will be much easier for Liviu (or me) to code new stuff. Well, our dream is that there are enough donations that we could code the whole day. But sadly that is currently impossible, since most guys don't help or donate. I must sadly earn my money with an other job. That is also why you must pay for software like asc and that is why that tools are maybe a bit better in some points than fet. People pay money to the asc coders and so the coders can always code. They are not coding only in spare time for fun.

Replacing the names should be possible with css.
So like here:

Naming the breaks will be difficult, since FET breaks are more flexible and can change the hour. So it will be impossible to span them.

BTW: Those hours are not allowed in Germany, since the students can't swap a room in 0s. We always need time to swap the room. If we do it like that, we will get trouble, since they will complain that the teachers work less.

Depending on if the hours are on the x-axis or the y-axis.
Open the .css-file from the results folder and search for this:
th.xAxis {


th.yAxis {


Then add the hide command for example like this (if hours are on the y-axis):
th.xAxis {


th.yAxis {
  display: none;

On paper you are right.
You might sent it by mail. On screen it is not too bad.

hmm... We might hide the hour names at all.
or we might print the hour names only if the start and end time is used.
So in worst case all times. In best case around 4*hours per day.
It is a bit complicated to print only the needed start and end times, but
I think it is possible to code it. Sadly not very easy and it must be coded for a lot of timetables. So sadly a longer coding task.

maybe a good item for the TODO list.

That feature is not implemented by csv, because in normal case there are not many hours and you need to add them only a single time in your whole life.
might be max useful if there is a school with a lot of hours because of a small duration like 5 minutes.
i think Liviu can add this into the TODO also for days.
shouldn't be difficult to code, but need some time to code. Since i don't need it myself and i guess it is not used by many users, i will only code if someone donate for this feature request. I guess Liviu will also code if someone donate for it.
Not sure. Maybe add both, so we can still think about which variant is better.
hmm.. I think if such a feature will be added, then it should contain a filter like in modifying multiple min n day constraints. So like modify only activities with hour x or with subject x or only sub-activity x.
