VW2017 - VW Display of Arcs with Markers

Question

Try this -

- draw an opened ended arc in Top/Plan view on the Layer Plane

- add arrow markers

- switch to a front or side view

- drag the arc up or down so its Plane becomes "3D"

- switch back to Top/Plan view and notice how the arc now displays as a weird open mouth arc hinged slightly at its apex. Also note that the object highlighting is still a nice smooth arc.

- turn off the arrow markers and the arc displays as it should.

Thanks!

Could you also tell me what the radius of your arcs are, as well as your layer scale?

I am able to see some of what you're seeing here, I'm just trying to get a sense of when the issue is more apparent, since I'm not seeing as much of an offset as you appear to be getting.

@MarissaFLayer Scale is 1:1, drawing is in metric, arc radius is 4mm. I was working on a solution to someone's post on the Forum. But I often work this small in VW for my jewellery work.

@zoomerI feel the same way but I tend to have fill on for class reasons.

It's not your fault at all. :)

It is the duty of the Software to avoid that from happening.
