Weird prob in 2012 - short lines wont draw, long ones do


Just this morning drawing simple 2D polygons and lines - short lines just vanish when when I finish the line  - yes all classes are on.


Lines they keep vanishing until the line length is about 35 metres., also small polygons with say 7 vertices are reshaping themselves to a smaller poly of 3 vertices.


This occurs with snaps on or off. Units metres, precision 0.001

Anyone seen this? No changes to system recently.

Do you possibly have a snap grid set to a large value? If you do and are drawing lines that are not at least 1/2 of the snap grid length then they won't draw.

@Pat Stanford  Thanks. Turns out I had polyline button live rather than 2D polygon, not a problem I've managed to trigger before all the way since ~2005.
