Center lines too short

Postby NCCALCADA » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:18 am

Hello,
I am drawing the plan for a piece i have created, and i have an issue regarding the center lines.
My piece has a geometrical revolution and when i am drawing i want the center line to appear.
Thus i'm clicking on the "show vertical line" but the line is too short for my piece.
The horizontal line seems to be long enough, but is well, horizontal.

Is there any option to extend the line ?
The part where i struggle is that this is a cross-section i think, because in the normal view the center line is good.
Note that if i rotate my drawing, the vertical and horizontal exchange their position leaving me whith the same issue.

Is there some interaction between the cross-section and the center line ?
And is there a way to define the length of the lines ?

I'm working with the 0.17 freecad.
Cordially, NC

Haven't seen this before. I'll have to look into it. I don't recall any way of adjusting the centre lines off hand.

Always helpful if you can post an FCStd file that demonstrates the problem.

Thanks for responding,
You're right it's better with a file :9

I've made an example, because it's not only the center line who are too short, but the cross-section indicator too.
