AECOsim Structural - Modify Member End and AccuDraw Compass

Why is it that no matter which end of a member I select, the AccuDraw Compass appears at the other end and not the end I have started with. I find it very frustrating that I have to 'O' AccuDraw to move an end a certain distance.

  • My guess would be that the Accudraw compass shifts to the other end so that it acts as a pivot point, with the selected end still on the cursor.   Is there a specific use-case for having the Accudraw compass and cursor both on the selected end?

    In my experience Steve I would have said it's the norm. You want to be able to see where\how you're working from and that is the end you pick. You're rarely in a position where you have the view set where you can see the complete member which leaves you blind. Especially once a model gets busy.
