    I think I see what you're saying, Chris. Do you get this request frequently from users in the field?

    Chris, is Cut Square checked in the Products List?  If so uncheck it and see what happens.

    Hi Dave, good thought, but it was unchecked. Interlocked, the carpet would be over-width.

    Not understanding the overlap Chris, the installer in me can't wrap my head around it.  Can the user provided an project and some clarification how this would be achieved and not be short on product?

    Justin, we don't get the request in so many words. Most often we see it when a client asks us what to do if they see cuts that will interlock when physically cut in the real world, but Measure won't allow them to interlock because they overlap by a centimetre or two (1/2 inch-1 inch). We tell them to adjust the size of the room/s slightly to allow Measure to do the interlocking or extend the width of the carpet.

    When I asked a client if the ability to overlap might be something they would like to see in Measure for carpet only, they responded positively. Logic would dictate that the ability to overlap would be restricted to maybe a couple of inches. 

    I would see it as a General Setting "Allow Carpet to overlap up to________" (anything more than three inches would be rejected). Then, as a user, if I had this set to two inches when I move cuts on a roll I would get an alert if overlap occurred, and the amount of that overlap i.e. the overlap would only occur on moving cuts; it would not happen by default.

    I will have Caedan attach a simple scenario showing a use case.

    Hi Chris,

    I've escalated this to our development team for consideration.
