Uber Tuber drill template label positioning
« on: September 23, 2018, 09:16:03 PM »
I'm working on graphics for my Uber Tuber build.  I always use Inkscape and the Effect Pedal Builder's Vector Pack for this sort of thing, overlaying everything onto the drill template in several layers, but I've hit a weird problem with this one, and I'm looking for a quick sanity check.  Here's where I'm at:

The knobs and corresponding labels seem positioned correctly, but that Boost toggle label is not right....

I've measured a real sub-mini toggle switch and shrunk my switch graphic a bit to match, but it is almost completely covering that control label. 

Is the text on the drill template purely informational and not correlated with control label positioning, or have I missed something or done something wrong?

It's not meant to be artwork, simply for reference. You'll definitely need to move the Boost label  ;)

You'll find, too, that the switch body sits right up by the chassis wall so get the drill template aligned nicely on the chassis.  It works out great because the switch can't rotate.
