Can somebody for the love of God explain this?
I have talked about this problem and described it in detail 3 years ago but no solution has been offered other than to deal and live with it. But how can a bug like this be tolerated if those decimals eventually cross the decimal point and you’re left with a project that has cms of modeling errors?
Something is wrong with the Arc Tool. Everything goes smoothly until the Arc Tool is used somewhere in the project. Then as if the whole file gets “infected” with a virus - arcs no longer measure properly, although circles do, drawing straight lines mess up existing arc dimensions etc. It’s basically a precision bug. The worst thing is, there was a temporary solution. You could just erase the “infected” geometry, and copy the remaining into a brand new SU file. That would ensure a clean environment. But as of late, even that escape route fails. and make sure that every click I do is snapped, so this is not a question of clicking a wrong place in the space.
This issue has been bothering me and others since 2010. I have a slight case of OCD and seeing those pesticide numbers at the end just makes me angry. It can’t go on like this. I’d like to hear from the SketchUp developing team. Are you guys aware of this? What is being done to solve this almost decade-long bug?
