Title: Polyline Tool
Post by: littleman on April 20, 2017, 09:00:19 AM
How do I control the direction that the arc segment form from right clicking o while using the polyline tool.
When using the polyline tool and right clicking and selecting the are segment, How do i control which direction the arc bends.
Right now it does not  what to bend in the direction I want it to go and I can't seem to find how to control the direction it bends.

Thanks,

I never have learned how to control that. I simply accept whatever arc direction TCad produces and then edit it afterward.

Maybe the Polyline tool (http://www3.turbocadcommunity.com/tiki-index.php?page=Line%20Polyline) in the Wiki can help. After you have chosen "Arc Segment", right-click again and choose the "Direction" option.

Thanks Henry & John for the replies.

Henry the direction switch that John purposed does work but I find it hard to control exactly what I want it to do.

Thanks,
Doug

Yeah, that's what I meant, Doug. I gave up trying to control it.
