The following quotations all come from the review thread.

- At the time the PDF is made, it isn’t yet known who will be sitting next to whom.
- One sheet has 65 stickers, so one sheet per person would waste two-thirds to three-quarters of each sheet.

The glass stickers were also rather hackerish to produce, so some improvement to the code is required.JacobH wrote:The stickers also worked extremely well; thanks Julian. As Wolfgang suggested, the only improvement would be to have each person’s stickers as a block so they could be cut up and distributed before the tasting starts. Also, for blind tastings it might be nice if the number took up only half the sticker so that we can write the name of the wine in when revealed.
It would be relative easy to add boolean flags that produce one sticker per glass per person, with some number of extra blank people, and that the Names loop be outermost. This would put all of each person’s stickers on the same page, except those who crossed a page boundary. Extra boolean controls could prohibit crossing page boundaries. But this could still be difficult to cut, as roughly illustrated in the following text diagram, in which the people are A, B, C, etc.
- Code: Select all
The cutting would have awkward 90° turns. Better suggestions welcomed.
