having moved from 22 to 25 in the past week, we've noticed that some of our associative railing has glitched out. in this case, we use the railing tool for roof flashings or gutters with a custom profile & have the nodes linked to the roofs. you'll see in a thick blue line the original & correct linked nodes. however since the upgrade to 25, it's gone around the roof, the long way around (red lines) , & flipped the orientation of the profile.
This bug has happened in other projects & with other custom profiled rails.
it's not just a slight annoyance, it's also having to re-model & re-label things in multiple drawings. if this bug is inevitable, is there at least a quick way to re-orient the nodes of the associative rail? ie, back to the blue line sequence?
for the curious: no, we weren't going for some sort of Frank Lloyd Wright inspired overhangs.
weird that it only flips the segments on some, but not all. either way -- at least it's a quick fix. cheers
It is to do with how the railing was placed.
It should be placed with 'Associated' nodes and segments.
If you click each node of your slab/roof or what ever you are associating to, it will place a node at each of those points (a black square node).
it will still be associated to the element, but this flip path option will not be available.
If on the other hand you choose any 2 corners of the element (they don't need to be adjacent corners but they can be), it will place the railing from the first corner, along the edges of the element, to the second corner - you wont see any nodes, but it will still associate to the other corners in between the first and second points.
Before you click the second point, you have the option to TAB to swap the railing path to the other edges of the element.
When you place by just 2 points, you will have this option to flip the path when you later select the railing as shown in my image.
