    It would be really useful to be able to use Curve Points with the Linear Avatar Tape tool, or have a Curve Avatar Tape tool in its own right. This could work in a similar fashion to the Line (Avatar) tool. See my comments regarding how I might use this here: https://support.clo3d.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360004034568-Cording?page=1#community_comment_360001881007

    Have just played around some ore with the tape tool and it does seem to follow contours with the Linear tool so maybe this is not as necessary as I thought

    It would be really useful if there was a Convert Line (Avatar) to Avatar Tape tool. That way you could exactly match the lines drawn for the pattern pieces before flattening and then use the Attach to Avatar Tape tool with 100% accuracy. The simulation would then work seamlessly and the resultant pattern piece would be exactly where you drew it in the first place.

    On the Avatar tape - is there a way to highlight/view the measurement after taking the initial measurement (as with the circumference measurement)? The yellow is a bit difficult to see against the gray of the avatar...
