I think NewTek purchased a set of bone tools called OrthoPak or something like that and incorporated them into LW8. I don't do much bone/ik work but decided to give the new tools a try. Bone_Twist seems to have a problem where certain selected bones will disappear and red and green lines go from the bone's pivot to infinity. For the time being I've opted to use the 'old school' method of adding an extra bone at the joint to avoid gimbal lock. I got the impression the new Bone Tools were meant to help reduce the extra steps in setup.

In the meantime: is this a known bug or am I misusing the tools?

TIA
