Plotmaker & Polyline bug

I have found a little bug in Plotmaker3.0 R3 Aus(6392) that causes improper translation of arch segments of polyline tool on drawings in some cases. The angle of them is calculated as an additive to the current one. (e.g. originally defined angle was 45deg. in Archicad, in Plotmaker would be 360deg-45deg=315deg). So I am getting sort of "bubbles" along the polyline in Plotmaker. It is all right when I change direction of polyline drawing in Archicad. Is that fixed with AC 8.1?

The answer is no, it is not fixed in AC 8.1.v1 1410.

We have seen the same bug. I have instructed my staff to use the Bezier tool or arc tool.

We so rarely use the polyline tool except for contour lines on site drawings anyways. It just happened that a new drafter started to use the tool to draw the leaders to text. Thus we discovered the problem like you.

Also only seems to be an issue as a single arc. No arcs or lines before or after. Can you confirm this Rob?

Sure hope GS resolves in 8.2.
