Duplicate rotation

Recommended Posts



I've noticed that when you duplicate using the command + j of an object that has the centre point moved (let's say to one end of a line that you have drawn), rotate it one degree and keep duplicating (say you want to have 360º of lines like in compass), it introduces a fraction once and a while.


I'm just getting to know Designer and I was testing the duplicate command.  I wanted to have 360 lines corresponding to 360º on a compass and every 2nd or 4th duplication (it's not always consistent), I get a fraction introduced to the next line.  For example, I draw a line vertically, convert it to curves, move the centre point to the base of the line, rotate it 1º and then duplicate it, 2º, 3º and then it duplicates it 4.1º!


Am I missing a setting or step in the process???


Attached Pic: notice in the transform pane the R: field is showing 110.1º after duplicating it from 108º, 109º then poof 110.1º.  I have to manually correct it then move on duplicating it.  I also notice this will only work with a line that has been converted to curves.  The process won't even work at all if the line is just kept as a line.  Duplicating it gets even weirder if it isn't converted!!!
