Intersection between ellipses are not all detected.

This makes difficult difficult to make the projection as the example I give, where part of ellipses are to be removed betwwen intersection ponts.

This task depends upon

Could you please attach the DXF or DWG file for testing or send it to us via e-mail? Thanks.

I tested this and drew something similar. I found that I needed to explode the ellipses twice in order to break them back down into arcs.I was then able to clean up the drawing with the modify tools!
I guess being able to snap to/detect elliptical 'arc' intersections before exploding them would indeed speed up the 'clean-up' process

I made some further tests.

If you draw an ellipse and copy and paste this ellipse the intersections are not found. If you re-size the ellipse moving and handle, then the intersections are found again.

My original drawing was done projecting 2 circles, so all ellipses are identical (direction and size). If you draw separately two ellipses exactly the same size and direction, then the intersections are not found.

If you re-size one of the ellipse or draw 2 different ellipses then intersections are found.

To summarize, intersection between two identical ellipses are not found.
