Grammar makes a big difference

Recommended Posts

"This operation only works on hybrid objects in plan projection."

This is ambiguous and untelling. It should read as one of the following:

This operation works on hybrid objects only in plan projection.

(unless I'm mistaken, this is the intended meaning; one must be in plan projection for this tool to work on hybrid objects)

or

This operation works only on hybrid objects in plan projection.

(Hybrid objects that are in plan projection are the only objects upon which this tool can act.)

or

This operation works only on hybrid objects while in plan projection.

(When in plan projection, hybrid objects are the only objects upon which this tool can act.)

:GRRR:

How about borrowing the amazing technical writers who wrote C4D's manual and getting them to do error output messages? [big Grin]
