Dunno Mark. DB's are not my area of expertise. Seems to work fine on my 'puter.

{shrug} Sorry?

The hatch isn't part of the selection set for that action.

Your sample shows 5 items in that set.. but it should have 6.

I added the hatch in and it works fine for me now.

I've attached my "fixed" one if that helps.

Whoops I should mention I only corrected it for the up>down action not the left>right flip. But the same should apply to that.

Mark, if you go into the blocks editor and erase the hatch, then redraw and reset parameters, it seems to work.

I'll try that again.

Of course, I didn't see this page while posting. However, it appears that you want to only increase the size of the bubble by horizontal constraints. For that, it would be advisable to use a linear as opposed to polar parameter.

Take a look at the screen shot.. it's easy to see the hatch isn't part of the selection.. which is why it's not moving with the action.

Hmm. It looked like it was part of the selection on mine. On second look, you're right, it's not. I still think that polar parameter should be linear. Why would it work on other drawings? I think I can answer that, actually. Pure guess: An accurately built block is or was in the drawings that it is working on of the same name and when this one is brought in via tool palette, it doesn't redefine the old correct blocks, but gets updated itself. Find the source and fix it.

you're looking at your distance parameter.. not the flip action and what's included in it.

Actually, yellow hatch is difficult to tell whether or not it's selected. What does your props window say? Mark, you're selecting the stretch object. Try selecting the flip objects, which are the offenders.

Q? You and I are on the same plane with this one. I just seem to be at the back of the plane.

Now I feel about this tall. :lol:

Yeah I agree a linear parameter is probably better, as you have no reason to use a polar one.

Also make sure you set your "dist minimum value" ( in this case I think it's 1.1571) so that it can only "grow" otherwise you get goofy looking results if you stretch it the other direction.
