Bug: Endless Loop using SetPt


(David Cockey) #1

How to put Rhino in an endless loop using SetPt. The only way I was able to get out of it was to end Rhino using Task Manager.

Start SetPt command
Select "Objects to be transformed’ and right click
Set Points dialog box opens
If “Set X” is checked type X to uncheck it
If “Set Y” is checked type Y to uncheck it
If “Set Z” is checked type Z to uncheck it
With all boxes unchecked right click.
A message box appears: “At least one coordinated must be enabled.” Everything in Rhino is locked.
Close the message box.
It reappears. Everything in Rhino is still locked.
Close the message box.
It reappears. Everything in Rhino is still locked.
… And so on.
The only way I could stop the loop was to close Rhino using Task Manager.

If the last “Set X/Y/Z” box is unchecked by clicking on the check rather than typing the corresponding letter the endless loop does not happen. The “At least one coordinated must be enabled.” message box appears but it does not reappear after it is closed. Rhino continues to work normally.

Hi David- thanks, got that- here it seems the right-click to accept the blank boxes is the key.
