Forgive me, if this is a stupid question. I acknowledge that we often learn to live with strange “features” of tools, where some specific implementation has been chosen for various reasons. I have often wondered about this one in Sketchup:
Consider the four geometries embedded in the topmost face (named from left to right)
a) a square containing a face
b) a square NOT containing a face
c) two connected triangles both with faces
d) two connected triangles NOT containing faces
These were all created embedded in the same surrounding face, so I just
deleted three “inner” faces to get this.
Now, delete one of the outermost edges. The surrounding face disappears,
as shown in the middle figure.
Then reestablish the edge to redo the face. You are now left the the bottommost figure.
As can be seen,
a) is as before
b) the outer face “overwrites” the hole (does not recognise the hole?)
c) faces of both triangles are “overwritten” by the outer face
d) the outer face overwrites both holes (does not recognise the holes?).
Naturally, I would have liked that reestablishing the outer edge would
reestablish the face as it was originally.
That not being the case, I struggle to see that this really is a “logical” behavior.
Can anyone shed some insight why this is a “logical” i.e. why has
the implementation been chosen to be as this?
