Passage information should be supported in more export formats

Description (last modified by Olly Betts)

Currently exporting doesn't allow you to include passage information in some formats which really ought to allow it:

  • HPGL? Is this still used?
  • GPX? Doesn't seem to support polygons - draw tracks along the walls?

Now implemented on trunk for some formats (SVG and DXF), which will be in 1.2.7. Other formats can be done later.

The skencil project seems to have ceased development ~5 years ago, so enhancing skencil support doesn't seem useful.

Added support for EPS in [33fd7d5a4766851dcb84ce38a82cff62cbf93092/git].

Not sure if HPGL is actually used these days - should probably check before putting a lot of effort into improving support for it...

Added support for passage polygons to KML in [f2cb1010705c32db8c39a7cc4a3e9b31e7ce6348/git].

I think this isn't worth doing for HPGL in the absence of any indication anyone is using it - nobody said they were in the thread a few months ago, though that did get rather side-tracked: https://lists.survex.com/pipermail/survex/2016-June/thread.html).

GPX doesn't seem to have a sensible way to include passages (tracks along the walls doesn't seem a good approach). I think for exporting to a GPS, something like exporting to garmin's "IMG" format is probably the answer, assuming there's a suitable library to write it. But that's a new export format, not extending an existing one.

So closing.
