Failed subtractions tip for 8.5

Recommended Posts

I've been occasionally plagued with the failed subtractions bug when using VW 8.5.2. When this happens, typically a rectangular box shows up instead of the object. We have known for a while that selecting the object, then "editing" it (ctrl+[) and "exiting" ("done" button or ctrl+]) will fix things. Often, however, if the subtraction has been moved, duplicated, or mirrored, the rectangular box shows up in a strange spot and cannot be selected. I have found that by drawing a selection box around the empty spot where the object is supposed to be, it can be selected and edited to cure the failure.
