Hello Ingvild-
Very interesting to read about your experiences with writing the Diagonal Planes - Thank you for informing all of us of this - I am glad to know about it too - Val ;-)

So they are there for the special occasions, and can be used for more detailed writing or research, but even if I was (one of the persons) who asked for them a lot, I now see that they are not as neccessary as I, for one, thought before. My personal suggestion is that you just mention the fact that these palnes do exist in actual signing, but that they do not seem to be neccessary for efficient writing or reading, and that you choose not to include them in your project at the present time. That way, you show that you are aware of the phenomenon, that you have considered including these planes, and your reasons for not doing this (not neccessary, more complicated program, both for development and use)

Is that possible to know how import or how often this plane is used in SW?

My intention is to demonstrate these two developed reference planes only at this stage to show the capability of the system, for we are not a company to produce a product after all, which should cover all functions.
