[Split] How to separate circles with the split tool?


Recommended Posts

I experienced this in v1.6 but didn't think too much of it at the time as it was a random one-off thing I was doing.

This was the result (following your instructions) after around ten minutes... seems quite and excessive use of memory for something so simple and also gave the fans on my MBP a good cardio workout. Interestingly I also got a mac message telling me I was almost out of HD space. A finder window showed I was down to 20GB and strangely once I applied a forced quit this jumped, in stages, back to 40GB. I did a search for any files over 1GB but found nothing to account for the missing 20GB!

One for the dev team me thinks O.o

Select all except the cyan circles and Divide - from the result select the biggest parts left and right and delete - select everything except the cyan circles and call Boolean add = crash. macOS held hostage try to force quit AD if you can.

Thanks for the file! I'll get this passed on to the dev team!

The Mac will be using any free disk space as virtual memory so that will be where the extra 20 GB went.
