Since last year’s post on our EE buglist was quite popular (and continues to be to this day,) we thought we’d revisit the subject. This list is by no means comprehensive, and it includes some items that we know Manchester considers wish list, we’ll call them bugs, because it’s bloody obvious that the program operates in a way that should be fixed. With that, the list after the jump.
- LaneOutsideSuper cannot have a depth of 0 for base or subbase – values must be positive and nonzero or the subassembly goes into an error state.
- Right-click to edit Profile View Label styles and you’ll only get the Layout tab, no dragged state options, no general, no layout, etc.
- Expression items cannot be used in Reference text in labels. Yes, Dan, Yes, Nick, I know it’s as designed. It’s still dumb and should have been fixed.
- Grading group surfaces with curved infill areas tend to triangulate poorly.
- Feature lines exported from Corridors are broken if the corridor has a break between regions. The FL may appear where desired, or anywhere along the corridor.
- END snaps will not snap to the end of a existing profile if the profile view does not have padding. Oddly enough, it will work at the beginning of said profile without the padding.
- Desc Keys seem to be limited in the number that can be viewed within the editor. This is an oldie but goodie, come on….
- Google Earth versions 4.3 and later will hang C3D at 49% during surface import. Not really a C3D issue since this was brought on after RTM, but now we need some error trapping to deal with it.
- Alignments that end at odd stations (like you know, MOST of them,) when drawn in profile cannot have their end stationing turned off unless padding is applied.
- Alignments and Profiles generated from Corridors are broken if the corridor is built from multiple regions. I suspect this has to do with the fact that we all build gaps into our corridors, but if you don’t you have the other corridor problems.
- Corridors still cannot handle regions that end and begin with the same exact station cleanly or as expected by most users.
- Grading from a graded FL, to an elevation, to a slope distance, to another elevation generally hangs. Calling grading groups buggy or an embarrassment is being kind.
- Creating offset points from Corridor-derived alignments and profiles tend to be flaky. Seems to go through the motions, and works sometimes, not others.
- Working folders don’t follow the active drawing files, or even warn you when you’re about to do something dumb.
- Selecting a large group (how many, we’re not sure) of surface spot labels then attempting to use the OPM to change the style will cause a crash.
- Selecting a Feature Line in Prospector and right-click to edit elevations still asks for a graphical selection on screen.
- Surface Slope Labels ignore the color scheme assigned in the style if you assign ranges. If you push analysis with no ranges set, or no analysis run, the colors are applied as stylized.
- Creating Data References to Pipe Networks often causes duplicate pipes to appear.
- You can STILL create Multiply Owned Objects by dragging the wrong child label style into another drawing.
- Create FeatureLine from XREF doesn’t register the Assign Elevations option being checked and skips over the step.
- Simplifying Surfaces reprocesses upon clicking the Finish button, even if no changes have been made since Apply was clicked. Not really a bug, but it wastes cycles, and can be a significant delay on larger surfaces.
So, what’s bugging you? Remember, flame-bait or pure wish-list type items will be deleted at will. Yeah, I know, some of mine are wish-list, but I made the list, so I get to make some of the rules.
Get your bug on, and post in the comments!
