Controlpoints not visible anymore

Recommended Posts

I made a 2D path PIO and as i wanted the path to be edited directly with the reshape tool or by double click i make the PIO events enabled and write all necessary to make it working:


vsoGetEventInfo(theEvent, theButton);

CASE theEvent OF

{User has single-clicked the object's icon. }

5: ok := SetObjPropCharVS(3, Chr(3));


{ ... the rest of the script}

and it works fine.

But by all other Pio that use Controlpoint have them not visible anymore.

even the built-in one like callout tool.

I'm not sure it come from my path object. I tried before to use CP and to hyde them on purpose but i didn't get it. it looks like i really get it now and that's very bad.

Do i switch a VW behavior?

Thanks for help

Sorry for the question. I found the answer and i am not proud of it.

I just had interactiv scalling off !?!

but i didn't remember to switch it off. and and restart VW.

maybe it should be automatically being set on start?

I may be misunderstanding your question, but changing interactive scaling shouldn't require a restart. It is just a mode of the selection tool (like changing the circle tool from radius to diameter) and the setting should stick between Vectorworks sessions.

The mode can toggle with the U key (as with any mode), so perhaps this is how it turned off for you. You should get a warning, though.
