Catenary tool, Fmz version 8.5.0.2?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Does the "catenary tool" works in version 8.5.0.2 (I have the LABPrimitives_8_0_0_6 installed in formZ 8.5 Pro Plugins)?

It worked fine in v 8.0.2, but now only a dialog box shows up (see attachement). What can I do?

 

Many thanks!

Hi Info,

 

Welcome to the forum.  Yes, those are the expected options.  The rest of the input for the tool is achieved graphically (just get the tool and click in the screen to determine where the shape is located.

 

Are you sure something is different between formZ 8 and 8.5?

Hi Z,

 

thank you for your quick answer.

Well, in v 8 the catenary tool works perfectly, in v 8.5 clicking the tool, I directly get the attached dialog (last post), then the tool quits immediately clicking OK, without having the possibility to click anywhere maintaining the tool active...

 

Best,

C

C,

 

If you go to the Preferences: Modeling -- do you have the Return to Pick tool option? 

 

If so, this is not compatible with any tools that use the result buffer.  Uncheck this and try again, does that help?

 

Instead of using the Return to Pick tool -- if you ever want to go back to the pick tool after executing an operation, just use its key shortcut (the key right below the ESC key), that will be a much faster workflow in the long run.
