X12 Bug While Entering Coordinates?

Recommended Posts

I'm drawing a screen molding in plan view using a rectangular polyline.  I hit tab to enter dimensions of X=.25 and Y=.75 (first image).  The result is a 24" x 24" square (second image).  Can anyone confirm this as an issue for them?  It seems to be the case with a polyline too.  All of a sudden I am unable to enter coordinates to draw shapes.

I believe that you might have the polyline tool active. That looks like the default polyline if you just click though I don't know what happened to the original. In any case it works correctly here moving the pline 1/4 and 3/4

Mark - It is definitely the rectangular polyline for which I am trying to enter coordinates using the tab key.  I can reproduce it over and over again.  Same thing with entering coordinates for the polyline.  This is the latest update to X12 from yesterday (or the day before - can't remember).  Thanks.

I just restarted and everything seems to be working now...

FWIW I'd use transform replicate, move for that.

If I'm understanding correctly, he wasn't trying to move it.  He was trying to initially draw it.  That is, he was trying to drag out a 3/4"x1/4" polyline.

That is correct.  I have not had the problem since I rebooted my machine.  I had Photoshop and AutoCAD open at the same time, so could have been a factor.  I remember a problem with AutoCAD 2010 when PS was open - maybe something similar?
