HOTARC2

I have problem with HOTARC2. Under some circumstances, it is not placed where an ARC2 with the same parameters. Looks like it ignores some of the coordinate transformations.

In Archicad12 it was completely wrong, in Archicad14 it is sometimes wrong.
Does anyone has experience with it in Archicad15? Is it correct there?

here is a sample code:

!first draw
GOSUB 100

!transform
ADD2 2,2
ROT2 45

!second draw
GOSUB 100
END

!draw something 
100:
PEN 4
ARC2 -2,0,1,0,90
HOTARC2 -2,0,1,0,90

ARC2 0,0,1,180,270
HOTARC2 0,0,1,180,270
GOSUB 200
RETURN

!show XY cursor
200:
DEFINE STYLE "xy" "Arial", 2, 3, 0 
STYLE xy
PEN 1
LINE2 0,0,1,0
TEXT2 1,0, "x"
PEN 3
LINE2 0,0,0,1
TEXT2 0,1, "y"
RETURN
After coordinate transformation, the second HOTARC2 is placed badly.
You can search for it with the mouse. (ArchiCAD build 14 HUN 4204 Win32 FULL)

In ArchiCAD 15, one of the arcs after the transformation (the one closer to the center of the object) does not have the HotArc2 mouse response, I do not know why.

It works in AC15 the same way as in AC14.
It's really interesting. Is it a bigbug?

Looks like the ROT command doesn't effect to the HOTARC2.

Interesting.
I changed the start coordinate to 0,0 to see if the negative value had anything to do with it. Now the second, farther away, segment of the rotated arc is the problem with no active hotarc.

The hotarcs are being rotated, but they are not being moved the correct
amount. If you move your cursor above the left end of the rotated one about the radius high and just to the right you find an invisible node which is the center of the hotarc curve. the mercedes cursor appears to the left and right.

HOTARC2 seems to be a bit buggy.
In some new ArchiCAD version(s) (I do not know exactly which) it does not work with 0, 360°, but with 0, 359°.

Hello,

I think this the full hotarc2 circle has
been for a long time to be declared as
'hotarc2 0, 0, radius, 0, 359.9' or similar,
not full 360 degrees.
