direction of line segment orthogonal

Post by J-J » Thu Mar 28, 2019 9:07 am

I using the latest snapshot on Win7-64. I select line segment orthogonal with start option: If the reference is horizontal the the segment goes towards positives coordinates, ok. now, if my reference is vertical or close, the segment runs towards the negative coordinates. I do not recall having noticed that behavior in previous issues, or may be I missed something!

The direction of the orthogonal line depends on the direction of the original line, this has not changed. To change the direction of the orthogonal line, you can change the reference point to "End".
