Customizer Hidden tab?

nophead
I have played with the customizer for the first time today. I have several constants at the top of my file that are not parameters to be adjusted, they are just named constants. The documentation on the wiki says I can create a hidden tab that will stop them being displayed, but it doesn't. I just puts them on a tab named Hidden.

E.g.
/* [Tab Hidden] */

Am I missing something?

The Thingiverse docs (http://customizer.makerbot.com/docs)
say it should be just /* [Hidden] */

So maybe just a bug in our documentation.

ciao,

The other thing that stops it is a module, I have used

a=1;
module stop() {}
b=2; // b not in customizer

That is not wrong. I mean: The documentation is not nicely worded, as it
was mainly written and edited by non native speakers, but writing a
clear documentation is even a challenge for native speakers. Part of the
issue is surely also structurally.

With Kind Regards,

Re: Customizer Hidden tab?

Thanks.

Both documents are misleading because they show how to create a tab with a name and then say "Three tabs names have a special functionality;"  and " The following tab names are reserved for special functionality: " . So I tried [Tab Hidden] [Tab][Hidden] and [Tab [Hidden]].

It isn't a tab name at all, it is something that is not a tab. So not an English language problem, it's logically incorrect.

The Thingiverse one follows it with an example, so they get away with it.
