Problem: Creation of unflat planes and mis-alignment
Hesitant to refer to this as a bug, as I may be trying
to do things that it is not supposed to do.
After using Align to Selection on a flat face, I
thought that move free should allow movement of the
verts belonging to that face, around on the same plane
as the face.
This appears to be the case in fact if moving any of
the original verts.
However, if any one, or all, of the edges are cut, and
the new resultant verts moved around, then the face no
longer stays flat, although still subjected to AtS.
Try this on any face of a default sphere. I used faces
in the northern hemisphere that were not on a major
Also, select a face on sphere and use extract region
normal on it.
Reselect the face on the sphere and apply Align to
In ortho mode, surely the extracted face should
exactly cover the original face on the sphere? It does
There is also a slight movement between using AtS on a
face, and using AtS on the edges surrounding the same
Other anomalies using AtS in edge mode on edge loops
of 3D twisted pipework type models.
A file would be needed to describe same properly, so I
will wait until (if) asked as I may be barking up the
wrong tree anyway.
