Bug: Control Points vanish when selected


(David Cockey) #1

Control points vanish in the Right viewport when selected in the attached file. Only the selected control points are affected. The control points reappear while being dragged and vanishes again. They also reappear if another object is selected, or if I click anywhere in any viewport. VanishingCP01.3dm (140.0 KB)

The Right viewport has an active clipping plane, and the green surface is clipped. Selected control points do not vanish If I move the clipping plane so that less of the green surface is clipped, or if I disable the clipping plane.

Same behavior on this machine with NVIDIA graphics and V6 SR2:

Works normally when saved as V5 file and opened in V5. However V5 file has same problem when opened in V6. VanishingCP01V5.3dm (134.6 KB)


(David Cockey) #4

Did some more testing and found the bug is independent of the display mode.

What I know:
V6 bug not in V5
Linked to or caused by clipping plane
Hardware independent
Display mode independent

A somewhat similar bug in the V6 WIP with control points disappearing when the model was rotate, not when selected, was reported in November '16. Control points disappearing
@stevebaer reported that he was looking into that problem.


(David Cockey) #5

Is anyone interested in this? It’s an obvious bug with V6 which apparently did not exist in V5, connected with clipping planes, and not hardware or display mode dependent. A specific example has been provided. It should at least make the tracking system or is it a known problem which is already in the system?

Hi David - I am checking this now.
