I select the curves to project in front view, then as the surface is hidden from my view by a surface ‘nearer me’ I select perspective view, select it there, then activate the Front view again and hit enter.
I get message ‘The Projection missed the selected objects’
The objects being projected in Front view sit on the Cplane and the surface is the far side of them.
Prior to this the same objects were projected to a surface sitting nearer me, so they had to be projected towards me as such, thus proving this is possible, as I was able to select them then the surface all in Front view, and it worked.
It just doesnt like the user exiting out to select surface in another view then hopping back into Front view for example.
Solution is to move aside the surface blocking the view then move it back, both surfaces sitting on the same layer.
…or change Front view to Back view !
