Negative Fractions

Post by Eric123 » Tue Nov 29, 2016 3:53 am

If I make a line (for example) from @0,0 to @-20 5/8,0 it will make a line that is 19 3/8 long. It is subtracting 5/8 from 20. I would like the line to be 20 5/8 long.
Is there a way to use negative fractions?

Thank you.

Certainly - try this: @-(20 5/8),0

I agree that @-20 5/8,0 should be evaluated as @-(20+5/8),0. This has been fixed for the next release.

Thanks for the quick replies!
I'll try this @-(20 5/8),0 and/or this @-(20+5/8),0.
Glad to hear it'll be fixed.

And thanks for an awesome CAD program!
