custom multiple window is arbitrarily opaque

Recommended Posts

Mac G5 1.8Ghz dual, OSX 10.4.6; VW12.0.1

I get random results when using the custom window for multiple windows. All non custom windows work OK. In open GL or RW, the multiple windows sometimes are opaque. You can't see through them and the muntins do not show. Glass is set for clear. I've tried class settings and turning off certain classes. The last test says it is a bug. I duplicated a custom double window which works correctly (is clear and shows muntins) . The duplicate is opaque.

The only unusual thing I see is in the window preferences' data pane where the "Operable Sash Length = 37' 10". This is the value in the working and non working custom multiple windows.

Henry,

Can you send me a file where this is happening?

Thanks,

Dave

Robert,

I have the same problem as he has with the opaque windows..... some are correct and show muntins and mullions, and others dont.... the windows that are ok, if duplicated, still seem to be ok, the same is true for the opaque in that they stay opaque.... flipping the window has no effect.

Robert,

thanks for the note, I sent the bug along. I also noted a bug discussion about the offset tool not correctly offsetting if the offset is greater than the length of the leg to be offset. Do you know if VW is working on that problem... it has been in existence for quite a while??

Michael, I entered a bug for that yesterday. Actually, some programmers (given the algorithm used to produce offsets) would not call that a bug, but since it doesn't meet expectations (or give the user an option to meet expectations) it's a de facto bug.
