Implied bezier with polyline

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to turn off this ridiculous implied bezier/curve or whatever it is, when using the poly line tool?  If I wanted a curve, I can choose from several modes make that happen.  If I've selected the straight line mode, I probably want a straight line.  Why does this program work against you so much?  It's frustrating....

That is actually Corner Vertex mode - not straight line mode.  If you only want straight lines either click without dragging the mouse once clicked or use the polygon tool.  Clicking and dragging (even a slight amount) puts you into a curve.  This is working as designed.  More info here:

Thanks for the reply.  The problem is, I'm not clicking and dragging.  I just click, then try to move the cursor to the next point, and I get the curved line.  There are times the tool works as expected, but a lot of the time it starts the implied curve nonsense.  

 

I've been using Vectorworks since version 11, so I kind of know what to expect from this tool.  VW2019 is different.  It's not consistent.  And it's frustrating.

Its definitely more sensitive in more recent versions. I've noticed it too.
