Hello SU world!
I have SU Pro 2019, and today I keep getting a remedial error that I can’t locate a solution for. I have several years of SU experience and have used the section plane tool many times, so this is quite strange. Today whenever I click the tool and try to place a location in the model it fails to initiate the section tool. After selecting the tool (using the drop down option or the button shortcut) the arrow stays as a white arrow and gives an error bell/notification when trying to place anywhere in the model. The arrow never changes to show the section face tool, and I am unable to select any other tool until I have escaped out of the process. Even the standard spacebar shortcut is unable to break out of the failed command.
I have a previous section plane in the model that works fine within the controls, I just can’t make a new one. Obviously I’ve tried closing this file and using different files only to experience the same failure. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Even though photos don’t really show the process (and in fact don’t show the cursor) here are a few for fun anyway…
