Arcs have only one end point visible (+ center).
Is there a reason for that ?
I'd like to see both end points.

My post was lacking precision :
Actually, I was trying to modify an old CU file (created in Nov 2004 with the latest CU version available at that time) and I realized that all the arcs were behaving in a very strange way.

I reported the following arc bugs to Todd yesterday :
- Only one endpoint showing
- Start angle always "0" in info dialog, even when it's not.
- Impossible to change the angles values (goes anywhere)
- Impossible to corner trim (either cuts too far, or disappears)

There must have been a mistake in one of the file format upgrade.
Todd could confirm these points and I'm sure he will fix with the help of Tim.

Here's the file:

(a file created less than 3 years ago should'nt get corrupted just by software upgrade:( )

We support a variety of arc definitions. This arc is defined as a center, starting point, and angle. When we do a show points, we only show the points needed for the specific definition. Various arc defintions include:
--center, start point, angle
--three points on
--start, end, middle
--center, start point, end point
etc

Thanks Tim,

Point#1 : OK, I understand your answer.
--> Don't you think the info dialog should tell the type of arc ?

point#2 : then, "0" means "relative start" and not absolute angle for this type of arc.
--> Isn't it confusing ?

Points #3 & 4 are still looking buggy.
