Editing Mirrored or Flipped Extrudes


When you create an extrude, it seems that whether the shape you start with is in the working plane or the screen plane, it automatically becomes a planar shape on its own working plane within the extrude.

When the extrude is rotated, this working plane moves with the extrude, and the extrude can be edited and the planar shape modified in it’s three dimensional context (with “Show other objects while in editing modes” turned on).

However, when the extrude is either mirrored or flipped, its planar shape seems to end up on the layer plane, with no context whatsoever.

I wish, when mirrored or flipped, that the planar shapes of extrudes would retain their working plan and the ability to edit them in their three-dimensional context… VWIS031

Did this feature ever get added to the functionality of VW?


Furthermore, is there any way to change the plane of a mirrored extrude so it remains in context relative to other objects?
