WIP block issues


I see a couple of problems with the current WIP and blocks:

  1. for objects inside blocks with ByParent material, parent material is ignored (object color ByParent seems to work OK)

  2. problem with linked blocks:
    Try inserting a file as linked block, ideally for this test containing objects on several different layers/materials.
    Then from BlockManager switch the block from Linked to Embed, and try to run BlockEdit - all objects end up on current layer with material ByLayer.


Hi Jarek - I’ll test, thanks.


Hi Jarek - I see your # 2 - if the linked block is inserted with 'active; layer style -


I do not yet see the by parent problem, but I’ll poke some more.



Hi Pascal,

thanks, the ByParent problem here happens even with simple box:

  1. make a box
  2. set its matertial ByParent
  3. make a block out of it
  4. change the block material or put the block on different material layer with block ByLayer material option.
    The material inside the block stays unaffected.


Yep, I do see it, thanks, got side tracked…


RH-41040 and RH-41041 are fixed in the latest WIP
