FS#1040 - Break out Manual on Circle/Ellipse does not respect Remove Segment setting

3.4.7 trial as well as community Git 9d3979

  • Draw a circle
  • B2
  • Make sure “Remove segment” is ticked
  • Select circle, then select two points to break out in between

Expected:

  • Segment gets removed (not really, but read on)

Actual:

  • Segment does not get removed, but circle is indeed broken into two arcs

Same for an ellipse.

I can see that by selecting two points on a closed circular shape it’s nigh impossible to tell which segment the user actually wants to remove :)

The documentation doesn’t mention this corner case. For clarity, a note detailing this effect a bit should be added to the docs.

On a slightly related note, I do not see why the feature couldn’t work on Polyline objects as well (with the same corner case restriction if it’s a closed polyline).

Very useful feature btw, thanks for it.

This works as expected for me.

The final stage asks the user in the status bar to 'click the part of the circle or ellipse to remove', works no problem!
