Rhino V8 red and green origin lines are wrongly positioned

In Rhino V8, the red and green origin lines are wrongly positioned in the Front and Perspective views. Consequently, when control points are turned on and clicked, the displayed coordinates are incorrect.

In V8 run the command AutoAlignCPlane and make sure Enabled=No

Hi David. I tried that, but nothing changed.

Regards, Garry.

Run the Rhino command 4View
The viewport CPlanes were changed from the default World CPlanes

Hi David. Still no change. It seems that there is an internal gremlin.

Regards, Garry.

@coffsoft looks like you have auto cplane on.


Try turning it off.

Hi Dale. The button said that it was off. I clicked it on, but there was no change. I clicked it off then retarted Rhino. No change. That is effectively what I tried above using the command prompt.

Regards, Garry.

Turn AutoAlignCPlane off.

Then run 4View and repeat if needed.

4View changes what I see.

Your file before and after running 4View

You need to reset the CPlanes after turning off AutoAlignCPlane.

Hi David. Thank you. That fixed it.

Regard, Garry.

Having AutoCPlane on by default was a mistake. It seems like a gimmicky feature meant to look good on sales demos to Sketchup users, that is leading to support issues like this.
