size of custom handles?

Hi,
I wanted to recreate a popular handle for use on kitchen shelves etc. It's working fine as a door handle but shrimps and distorts when used as a cabinet door handle. Weird or not?

cabinet door or cabinet drawer? Does that make any difference?

It is not just you. It does not work right. However, one of the ways you can compensate is with the Settings using negative or positive dimensions



another way is how save it that is too complicated to explain, but I had better luck saving it as an object ( was a morph), then as a nob.

The issue is kind of related to morphs not knowing which side is up and also a perfectly vertical rotation. If the the morph has a vertical rotation of .01 off of plumb it will give a very different result than at perfectly plumb. That sort of thing. I typically use nobs and handles that are independent objects.
But you can get what you need using a custom nob.

I also do that, and that is one of the reasons why I made this wish
