(Bug) Offset and CenterSnap

systemInfo_tom_p_2024-03-01.txt (5.0 KB)

draw a rectangle 20x20
offset by 2
there is a unnecessary additional CV (Curve Start) (Bug Part A)

_simplifyCrv will not Filter this additional Point (because it s the Start ?) (SimplifyCrv should ignore CurveStart/End or have an option for this) (Bug Part B)

and this additional CV causes Center-Snap to fail.

Hmm, I thought this bug was fixed a couple of versions ago? In any case it seems to be fixed here in my current 8.5 SRC (8.5.24058.13001, 2024-02-27)

OK, looks like it was only first fixed in 8.5:

Yeah, been asking for this for a long time… There are several open issues in YouTrack referencing this problem.

Offset was broken in several occasions for me today
Had to go to R7 to do all linework, a major issue for people that just own R8.
