Tangentially connected tool + Restricted horizontally opt.

Postby Husky » Sat Jun 15, 2013 8:44 am

XP32, 3.1

Maybe somebody can help me to understand this behavior :shock:

If I try to use the Tangentially connected (AN) tool plus the Restricted horizontally (EH) option then I get something what I haven't expected.
I expected that the EH restriction works at the center of the radius - but it doesn't. Instead it is following some kind of angle ...
Similar problem with the other restriction tools ...

The goal in this scenario is to connect a 3/4 circle at a line. This example shows a horizontal line - but it should work at all lines under all angles ... :wink:
How can I tell the radius to be finished at 315° ... without additional construction lines?

Unfortunately - nope :?. Or should I say: Not good enough. I'm asking for 315° and get 272°(or 88° instead of 90°) :wink:

Agree! Because right now I'm not really able to control this tool. But ... is it a bug, is it a feature request or is it me .... :wink:
