I am working in 2D mode and ViaCAD keeps crashing/locking up whenever I try to extend a line that is enclosed inside of a rectangle or other polygons when using the polygon as the extend to boundary. It works fine if I extend a line inside of a circle, but I can't get it to work in a rectangle or polygons. If I try to extend a line to intersect a polygon, the screen blinks and then I get a blue circle showing that it is trying to do something but it never comes back. I have to close out of ViaCAD and start over. Is this a bug or is it just not possible to use extend inside of a polygon? If it is not possible, it seems like it should give me an error and shouldn't lock the program up.

Anyone else have this issue? Any fix for it?

Hello

What version and build are you using check it in the help menu.

Is this just happening in 2d mode?

Would it be possible to provide an example file?

See attached test file. I can select the circle and then hit the extend button and extend the line inside the circle without any problem. If I select the rectangle or polygon first and them hit the extend button that will lock me up. This happens in both 2D and 3D modes.

I am running ViaCAD Pro 10 Version 10.0.0 Build 1309 in Windows 10 64 bit.

>> Build 1309

Would it be possible for you to contact Encore TechSupport and request a Work In Progress build? A newer build should correct the crash. They have 1318 available for issues such as this.

Extending to a polygon is something that still needs to be added to the trim tool.

Trimming/extending to polygons is now added to the 1341+ builds.
