    Hello,

    I am trying to edit the parameters of a solid with the help of the ted command. What I do is this:
    1. create a solid (e.g. a sphere named S.s)
    2. sed S.s
    3. ted (then edit with vi and save&exit)

    Nothing changes if I start ted again the original parameters will still be there.

    Any idea?

    Cheers,
    Oliver

    Oliver,

    What version of BRL-CAD are you seeing this behavior in? (can check with mged -v)

    If it's not 7.18.0 please check the latest - if it is we may have a bug with ted.

    Thanks,
    Cliff

    Nevermind, I've confirmed a bug.  It will be fixed in the next BRL-CAD release, thanks!

    That was quick - thanks! It was indeed version 7.18.0. I will work around it until it is fixed, no big deal.

    Cheers,
