Perhaps I shouldn’t even ask, but I’m having big problems drawing a simple house in 3D using Perspective view.
OFFSET VERTICAL LINES
For example, I have vertical lines which I want to offset from a corner in a room (a typical “contruction lines” case), but pffft, offset simply refuses to spit out an offset line. Isn’t offsetting vertical lines supported? (or, not supported in Perspective view?)
Another problem is that Ortho influence is extremely “weak”. Does it work at all? Just about anything else that can “disturb” takes precendence over Ortho, like Osnap to any silly geometry nearby or faaaaaaar behind, and even if nothing is nearby the Ortho mode is releases when moving the mouse the slightest off the ortho path. It’s actually useless.
I never had any problems like this with R5 (except for the totally mental “snap-to-any-irrelevant-crap-located-far-behind-any-objects-in-front”, a totally backwards strategy which I simply cannot understand…).
