Place along path

Recommended Posts

Hi - can anyone tell me please why the Place along Path tool just doesn't seem to function ?

If I use "By Distance" and enter 1 m it arbitrarily uses something like 53.486 m !

If I use number of copies and put in 515 it arbitrarily uses 15 !

Have I missed something ?

What am I doing wrong ?

Am using 7.3.4 on Mountain Lion.

Thanks in anticipation !

Cheers

Rod

For some mad reason when I opened the file and tried it one more time it worked properly !

I had tried it over and over again before posting my question on here.

But there remains one very odd thing - after carrying out the operation NOTHING works properly.

Items are showing in the view when they are clearly switched off - nothing can be selected.

The only remedy is to save the file and Quit FormZ - then re-open the file.

Everything then appears Hunky-Dory.

But at least I can now move on.

Cheers,

Rod

So now it's happening again.

After functioning fine with both Distance and Number I needed to use the same profile to place along a different path and it now insists on changing my 1.000 m to 0.0126 m - repeatedly - even after I quit, open the file again to find the 1.000 setting has remained ... and then it changes it again the moment I try to use the tool.

I'm going to have to give up and do it manually.

I can't waste any more time.

Cheers,

Rod

It's probably that version. The next version 8 and the subsequent 8.5 upgrades were major rewrites and I know they completely redid the 'core' database.

The current version is 8.5/8.6
