[FIXED] Issues with Transform Toolbar

Post by pwillard » Sun Jun 20, 2010 2:46 pm

I'm using the latest version and in the last two release I have noticed some odd behavior that is not consistent.

When using the transform tool bar... most often while manipulating X,Y position of individual points, the field input box will blank out and not show the current value. Since I use this to verify alignments, I really do want to know what the current value is... but the field will only update when I try to change it... which is not always my goal.

So... in a nutshell... when selecting points in the Transform Toolbar, fields do not seem to reliably show "current" value after a point is selected by the mouse.

I can confirm this bug in the latest version — ver 6.1 build 225.

You can align point easily by using the Align toolbar. It can be detached and placed wherever you want for easy access when aligning points — I use this method a lot to ensure that all vertical and horizontal strokes are truly orthogonal. You may find it quicker than moving individual nodes with the control + cursor keys.

Has this bug report been overlooked?

This issue should be fixed with the version we've released earlier today.
