Unable to edit subd plane using box edit in Rhino 8 after update

Hello guys,
I used to edit the dimensions of objects in Rhino by using the edit box to get the exact measurements. However, after the last update for Rhino 8, I encountered an issue where I couldn’t edit the dimensions of a subd plane. Every time I tried, I received an error message saying “Unable to transform the object”. This functionality used to work well for all objects, but now it’s only an issue with subd planes. Is there a solution to this problem?

Hi @yara.barakat2712 ,

I’m not seeing this issue using the same values you showed with a SubD plane.

Can you post your file please along with the text file saved from the SystemInfo command?

Hi @BrianJ and @yara.barakat2712
I’m seeing the exact same thing - see video.

Thanks @Normand I got it now… it appears that the orientation is a factor.

@yara.barakat2712 ,

Do you recall when this worked as expected? Was it in an earlier Rhino 8 service release or an even earlier version of Rhino like v7? We’re trying to narrow down where the change responsible occurred. Thanks.

@Jakob Normand, thank you, that’s exactly what happened to me.

This occurred shortly after the latest update of Rhino 8 . I am unsure of the exact date, but it was sometime between May 18-21, 2024.
