Corner Tool seems to fail beyond 5 corners

7 posts in this topic

I was trying to smooth the corners of a hexagon by selecting all corners and applying the cornering tool. I noticed that the behaviour was not consistent for all 6 corners. For 5 out of 6 (or 8, which i also tested) the cornering is consistent. For the remaining corner(s) the radius is only partially applied. I've attached some images to show what i mean (in the hexagon, the bottom left corner has a smaller radius, in the octagon three corners have a smaller radius).

 

AD 1.6 Beta 6 (oops, i just noticed that i posted this in the wrong category)

From your example, it looks like the bottom left point is not equally positioned with the other points. Unfortunately, I'm not getting the same result. Are you rounding the corners all at the same time or individually?

Hi Bri-Toon. Thanks for trying to help.

 

My steps:

  • Create a Pentagon using the Polygon tool
  • Increase the number of corners/sides from 5 to 6
  • Select the Corner tool
  • Select all corners
  • Apply the rounding using the Tool options bar

In the meantime, i've noticed that, even when i keep the Pentagon, one of the corners (the top corner) remains sharp despite being selected. Image attached.

The reason I wasn't facing this issue is because I didn't realize a new beta launched yesterday. You said 6, but I can't always keep track of the number. I installed the latest version, and for me, I can't even get the radius pass .02 inches. It looks like this is a new bug. You should post this in the beta topic so MattP sees this.

For comparison: This bug is not present in the current Windows Beta (1.6.0.79)

 

However whilst playing I did notice that...

 

Using the corner tool on a polygon converts it to a curve, without warning the user. This means you loose the abilities of the Polygon Shape tool  to curve the edges.

 

The same applies to all the other shape tools (eg Tear) - as soon as I use the corner tool I can no longer adjust the 3 parameter of a teardrop.

 

Is this a bug, or by design, or a design limitation?

I noticed the same thing. Whilst I can understand such a limitation being imposed, I think there should be a warning about this behaviour.
