Placed Permanent Guide moving issue

Issue

Moving an already placed Permanent Guide does not work like moving a cut plane. (Click-drag-release method instead of Click-drag-click method)

Solution

Workaround: Hold down the primary mouse button while dragging.

Moving the cursor to the Permanent Guide tab can break input

Moving the cursor to the Create Permanent Guide tab while placing a chain of walls can break the wall input

Solution

Workaround: Avoid using the problematic tab, while creating walls, or place the needed Permanent Guides before creating walls.

Drag multiple copies not working with Permanent guides

Issue

Dragging Multiple copies of Permanent guides is not working yet (It uses the same program mechanics as the 3D cut planes.)

Solution

Workaround: Use the "Drag a copy" multiple times (with the ALT on Mac or with the CTRL on Windows platform)

 

Good to know

  • It is not possible to undo the placing of a Permanent Guide (just as in the case of placing 3D cut planes)
