[Solved]Scale of items in a projection group does not work

Postby IngoMeier » Thu Oct 24, 2019 10:39 am

Solved by placing two projection sets (an extra one just with the corner views with a different scale). Not comfortable, but works as expected.

Hi!

This is maybe another one for the Master Of TechDraw wandererfan. (Thanks for all your efforts!)

Each item of a projection group has its own scale property.
Changing this does not change anything in the drawing.

Is it intended to work?
Or should the scale property of the item been hidden?

Same behaviour in Version 0.18.16131 and 0.19.18542

Same sample can be used for testing. Just try to shrink an item at the corners This feature is useful (in my opinion), but it might break ISO / ASME conformity.

Thanks,
Ingo

The ProjectionGroup controls the scale for the individual items. The ScaleType and Scale properties on individual items should be hidden. They are currently marked "ReadOnly", but I'll change it to avoid confusion.

What about leaving the corner view unchecked and inserting a regular view with the appropriate direction and scale?

Yes, that is a way to go.

Scale is hidden for ProjectionGroup items by this git commit a8ee33a754.

ScaleType is still shown despite setting it to "hidden". Hopefully this isn't too big an inconvenience.

No Problem!


Thank you!
