Sure, sometimes I just don't know how to describe and I need help from you guys to understand what is going on...

Will try to explain this better, as much as I can.

So, I am adding a feature to an existing project.
This is a polar pattern, using a Sketch supported on ZX_Plane.
The Sketch is well-formed, not fully constrained, tho.

The feature is this cantilever, here. (This is "almost" the ZX_Plane view)

Now, I want to create some copies around the Z-Axis using the polar pattern.
Before, I used to use the Normal Sketch Axis or the Sketch Z-Axis to do that, for the same feature.
I also tried to use some other Sketch Axis to solve this.
Nothing seems to work now.

So, my question is:
Has anything changed in this version that is related to the Polar Pattern?
If, Yes. Can my issue be related to that or this looks like just a poor design?

Sorry, I can't share this design here.

Can you reproduce on a minimal example (that you can eventually share) ?

Changing the tip of the Body fixed this.
Do you have any page explaining this? I am using Freecad for more than 2 years and I never needed to know about it.
