Hi there, 

 

For example, when I select a corner to curve I might put in 9mm, immediately that value changes to 3.175mm. Does anyone know why this might be happening? 

 

Thank you

I forgot to mention that the slider will also reset to the same value if I scroll to 9mm.

Another update: The issue seems to resolve when I change the units from mm to points. I would still prefer to use mm if possible.

Hi Monika,

 

Here are the screenshots. In the first you'll see the curve value was converted to 3.175 when I put 9mm initially. I have stumbled upon another problem that you'll see in the second screenshot. Initially I was able to alter the edges of the larger shape as evidenced by the curved corners. Now after about a day that option no longer exists. Is this a known bug?

 

Thank you for your help,

 

David

Regarding the value, I suspect you are hitting the limit of what the geometry will support. For a small corner like that, a radius of 9mm may be impossible. 

For the larger shape, it is no longer a live shape, which is why the corner widgets are not showing when it is selected. Perhaps you made an edit that broke the live shape. Without know your edit history, it's hard to tell.

Hi Michael,

 

Thank you for your time. I thought 9mm might be too large as well, but if I put 20mm the curve is larger but the value still reverts to 7.056mm. 

 

Regarding the larger shape, I don't believe I did anything. I drew it up and then left it after curving the corners which is why I am surprised. Do you know how I might be able to revert it to a live shape?

 

Thank you!

Hi Michael,

 

I was playing around with those shapes just now and noticed that when I changed the dimensions of the larger shape from 110mm to 95mm it would get right of the option to curve corners. This was unfortunately not the case when I tried the same with the smaller shape. Is the iPad version usually this inconsistent? 

 

Thanks,

 

David
