    LWCAD Curve to Polygon Issue

    Hi Guys

    I'm using LWCAD 4.5.1 under Lightwave 11.6.3

    When I have two or more LWCAD primitive curves in separate layers, and go to convert from curve to polygon under layer one without any of the other layers selected all my layers curves convert.


    Steps to recreate this problem

    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Rectangle in the first layer
    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Circle in the second layer
    Select the first layer only
    Press the LWCAD Curve to Poly button

    Both layers convert instead of just the first layer. Shouldn't just the active layer convert? If so what do you think could be the problem here

    UPDATE:

    It seems to happen because the Curve to Poly button stays activated and any action I do Copy, click on another layer etc it keeps converting from curves to polygons

    Steps to recreate this problem

    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Rectangle in the first layer
    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Circle in the second layer
    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Circle in the third layer
    Create a LWCAD primitive (Curve) Circle in the fourth layer
    Select the first layer only
    Press the LWCAD Curve to Poly button
    Click on the second layer
    Click on the third layer
    Click on the fourth layer

    Each layer will be converted from curves to polygons

    the only way to stop this is after you press LWCAD Curve to poly button you have to hit the spacebar to deactivate the tool.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Yep thats how it works and yes a lot of the tools remain live until you drop them.
