When i select to move a straight edge of a polyline, it grows proportionally if the edge is at the end of the series of line segments.

Maybe somebody will fix it some day.
If it got broke accidentally, maybe it will get put right by accident.

For now: marquee stretch.

I dont think this ever worked in any -version. Basical the lines are edges of a fill with a hidden line making up the last line so when one side is edited it wont stay the same length. Pity

I have never understood why this behaves this way (I assume it was just the easiest way to program it) and I have never found this behavior useful. It would be nice to see it fixed.

I remember reading in a post a while back that it treats it as a closed polyline. Don't know why, but seems to be the case. I would be happy with both options in the pet pallette (stretch as if closed, stretch and maintain length).

Stuart, that was my post.

I'm glad that others agree with me.

See my previous post on the subject.

Its just ridiculous
