FS#1568 - Issues: Snaps, Trim, Green selection tool


There is some issues with the snap tool and the selection tool.The trim button only trims some lines but not all.

1. The snap tool does not let me snap to certain things when i select something. For example i will select a box and i will try to extend the corner to another entities corner but the snap is not there so its free and thus not accurate.

2. For some reason the selection tool does not allow me to select certain things. If i have two boxes overlapping and i use the selection tool (from right to left “green selection box”) it does not allow me to select what i want i have to actually click it. This is annoying when it comes to selecting specific things.

3. The trim tool does not work properly.If i want to trim the inside of a cross hair or such, it only allows me to trim the inside of one line and if i try to trim the other it deletes the complete line.

Please fix as soon as possible. Thanks

Thanks for your report.
Please attach your drawing file since this is most likely a problem with your file (with a likely easy fix).

Just a wild guess: it sounds like your drawing was imported from another program and contains 3D data. You can flatten it using Misc > Modify > Flatten drawing to 2D.
