LIne End Markers Appear

Question

I have had this same exact thing happen on many files over the years. Could it be that all those files were corrupted?  Or might this actually be a bug?  Also, I have reported this multiple times to tech support.

It is not just happening to the space objects.

All the markers are removed if I undo the create similar object action.

If it can be replicated in a new blank file we can file a bug, but I tried using create Similar here in a new document on a number of similar objects to yours and was unable to get the markers to appear.

See attached.

New VW 2017 file.  Import classes.  Draw items on a design layer.  Create sheet viewport.  Set viewport rendering to Sketch.  Set to Notes-Sheet class and draw a callout. Use right click to call up context menu and execute create similar object.  Line end markers appear.

The Sketch rendering setting is key.  If that is turned off the phantom line end markers go away.

I imported my standard classes from a previous file that contained them.  You could do it from the file(s) I sent.

Then the issue looks to be with the imported classes, If I repeat those steps here without doing a class import first, or importing from a default template, I do not get the handles.

I see the issue in your file, but I am unable to replicate it here. Even if it went to support before, that's the best bet, they can try it out on other OSes and see if they can recreate the issue. Tech@vectorworks.net

Did you set up the class exactly like my Notes-Sheet with the custom line end marker?

What should I do next? File bug report? Send it with explanation to Tech? How can I make sure the issue is officially tracked?  Like I said I have encountered this for many years.

Tech@vectorworks.net, as long as they are able to replicate it, it can be filed as a bug properly and will be tracked.

Actually I have to say I am wondering why I am required to put this next level of effort in. I don't really have the time to be doing this if the first place. But I thought I would  give it a try with the new system and all. I think that I clearly demonstrated that it is a bug and that someone at N should take it from here and track it and keep me up to date on the progress on solving it.

Currently that can only be done through Tech Support, who do not yet monitor this board. They may very well in the future (many have suggested this and I agree) but for now the old channels are still what need to be used. You can certainly forward them the link to this thread however and then you won't need to upload the files or re-explain yourself.

Okay.  The link idea is helpful. 

Was this troubleshooting forum the best place to post this topic in the first place?   Or?

When could one expect you to get involved in seeing something through?  Was this issue not important enough in your view?

It may be difficult to imagine, but, before I figured out what was causing it (maybe two years ago), I lost many work hours over the years due to this issue.  After trying several times to call tech attention to it, it was very discouraging to find it in VW 2017.
