Hi again,

Earlier today I was attempting to use the Join Polyline from the ribbon interface in BabaCAD 2017.
I am running it on a 64 bit Windows 10 Home machine with integrated Intel graphics.
I found that I was neither able to join two polylines nor a polyline and an arc or spline.
After the first few attempts BabaCAD stopped working, so I first simply re-opened BabaCAD and tried again with the same failed results and a crash.
Following this I shut down my machine and did a reboot too before trying again.
On the next attempt I was unable still to produce joined objects but no further crash took place.
I deleted all objects and began again with my screen recording software running to see if I could reproduce the filed results.
The video file Baba1.mp4 in the following shared folder shows these attempts:

The results are similar to those obtained in previous attempts. When clicking on the Join button on the ribbon after constructing a polyline and an arc the Command Line requests selection of a polyline. If I select the arc first it gives me an error. If I 'select' the polyline first it does not appear selected but the command line asks for selection of another polyline or arc (indicating that the polyline was selected). After then selecting the arc (which is visibly selected) and pressing SPACE or ENTER the result seems to vary randomly between doing nothing, deleting the polyline and replacing the arc with the polyline segments.
I haven't tried a range of segment sizes for the polyline or arc but it does seem to me to be performing erratically, and certainly not as I expected.

Whether anyone else has a similar experience, or can reproduce the issue I don't know.
Hopefully you can give me an explanation or reproduce it yourself.


General discussion about BabaCAD / Links Broken on Website Index Page

On the home page of the website there are 4 images of things prepared in BabaCAD. The two on the left are fine but the two on the right have links that loop back to the home page and the images are therefore not displayed.



General discussion about BabaCAD / Terminology for Documentation

Hi Mirza,
I hope I am not being too familiar by using your first name.
On the linked image (see separate link paragraph) I should like to know what your terminology is for the three items indicated.
In v 2.0.0 Errata CommandLine, I think, refers to item 3 as a "Dynamic Input Box". This would seem a convenient description and terminology for it, but it may not be your preferred terminology. My interest here is in perhaps providing some small assistance with documentation as my time allows.

Attempting to post this with an attachment gave me an error regarding the image attachment so I have removed it. Accordingly, here is a link to the image in a Google drive folder I am sharing for the purpose

Also, I am not sure if you prefer to have several issues raised in one post or if each post should address a single topic. Accordingly, for the time being I shall raise separate posts for 2 other issues I have come across.


General discussion about BabaCAD / Feature Requests
« on: July 22, 2017, 01:08:52 pm »
Are you open to members making requests for features they may have seen/used in other CAD software that might be both useful and perhaps easily implemented?

For example, in DraftSight there are several ways to construct a circle. Three of them can be emulated using circle, arc and ellipse techniques but, so far as I can tell, the remaining two (tangent,tangent,radius) and (tangent,tangent,tangent) cannot be constructed without geometric computation by the person doing the drafting. The (tangent, tangent, tangent) method is very useful to quickly construct inscribed circles precisely within other objects.
