Current object layer grayed out. Can't change object layer

bug
(Dan Taylor) #1

Two of us at the office are experiencing this. No matter what object we select and what layer it’s on, it appears we can’t change the layer. If I select the layer and click ‘move objects to this layer’ they appear to move but if the layer has a material assigned to it, they don’t change to that material.

The layer selector appears to be a bug. Not sure if the material changing is a bug or just how things work.

I’m having trouble reproducing this one. It would be helpful if someone can provide steps to reliably reproduce what looks like an annoying bug.

Dan it’s quite intermittent, draw a cube, make a copy of the object, gumball drag/alt, or copy paste, then put the objects on a new layer, sometimes the properties panel becomes inactive, I have also noticed when moving the objects to a new layer they are not always taking on the colour of the new layer, hth

Thanks for these steps. I was able to reproduce this once, but I’m having trouble doing it again. I’ll keep trying.

Update: I’m getting closer to reproducing it. I think I’ve cornered this one…I think.

Got it! I don’t know why that was so hard the first time. Logged in RH-50838. Can you please verify you can reproduce this on your machine with the steps listed in that bug-track item?

Thank you! Damn, that’s annoying.

A temporary workaround is to switch the right-hand sidebar inspector from Object Properties to Inspector Panels and then back to Object Properties.

We’ll get this fixed. We have a lot of clues.

This should be fixed in the latest RhinoWIP. Please test and make sure. Thanks for your patience with this one.
