The good ol’ “2 Point Arc” tool (formerly just called “Arc”) can be activated using “Sketchup.send_action(“selectArcTool:”)”
What now is called the “Arc” tool in the UI can be selected with “Sketchup.send_action(“selectArc3PointTool:”)”. This tool is referred to as “Arc3PointTool” by the RoolsObserver as well despite the UI having another tool called “3 Point Arc”.
The tool the UI calls “3 Point Arc” and ToolsObserver calls “Fit3PointArcTool” is the one I’m having troubles selecting. I can’t find any documented way to select it; it doesn’t seem to be mentioned by any name in the #send_action docs.
However I’ve noticed that the list of Windows only integer arguments for #send_action matches the tool_id returned by the ToolsObserver. Using this value does activate the tool on Windows! I’m afraid though it won’t work on Mac since the docs specifically says integer arguments are Windows only.
Does anyone have any ideas how to activate this tool on Mac? Perhaps it has there is a string identifer for send_action that is just missing in the docs?
Btw, the tool_id value for this tool is not present in the list in the ToolsObserver page. Should I add it? @tt_su
