Railing/fence fails to create flat frame bars

Question

In VW2021 SP1 the Railing/fence tool seems to fail to create/represent flat-shaped vertical frame bars (while horizontal frame bars are behaving as expected).

I tried both on a new file and on an existing converted one, where bars are simply not represented. Should I report it as bug?

It's working as expected on mine.  It looks like you don't have the left and right frame bars checked.  So what looks like frame bars may actually be posts.

Thanks @michaelk for your kind reply. This is very strange, I double checked but I am not able to find any misconfiguration. This is working as expected in VW2020 but not in VW2021 (attached here both versions). Furthermore I get more inconsistency with horizontal bars (showing, but with incorrect size, as in the image below).

Thanks for the example.  That makes it much easier to follow.  Especially with railings, which I find can be a little confusing.

 

Railings in 2021 got some nice new features.  And I think you found a nice new bug:  Vertical frames don't show correctly when selected to be flat.  And horizontal frames are offset and too big.  

 

Are you running a localized version?

We run and tested both versions at the office, localized and international (US), with no difference. I’ll share with our distributor and submit as bug via VW website. Thanks again for your reply.
