Layer display bug

A very simple one; Simply select an object that is on a layer and youll notice the layer changes on the bottom bar (next to mouse position and units etc.). It will change to the layer of the selected object. This is very useful for changing layers of objects. Anyways, I will often select an object to see its layer in the bottom bar. If you select an object its correct layer will display but if you select another object on another layer the layer will show as the current active layer instead of the objects actual layer. You must deselect everything then reselect the object to display its layer.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create new file
  2. create 2 objects (lines for example)
  3. create 2 layers beyond the inital NewPart layer
  4. assign each object to separate layer and have active layer be the NewPart layer
  5. select object and notice bottom bar changing to that objects layer
  6. without deselecting select the other object and notice the layer in the bottom bar changes to the active layer not the currently selected parts layer

Hello - So far I do not see this - are you changing the selection or adding to it (Shift) in step 6?


I am changing the layer only. I tried to get a video but it wont capture the bottom most bar for some reason. I will attach 2 pictures. The first one is selecting the first part the second one is taken right after simply selecting the other part

Hello - yeah that is what I understood but I do not see that here so far - can you please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and copy/paste the results here?

Hello - a long shot, but I’ve seen strange and unexpected things from plug-ins - can you disable glTools in Options > Plug-ins page then close and restart Rhino - any different?


No change from when it was enabled

Hi Josh - ok - I see this with the automatic points on - I have that turned off, here, in general.
I’ll get this on the bug list- thanks.
