We have a reoccurring problem in the office which none of us have been able to resolve.
When using the Stretch Elements command, some elements don't stretch at all. It seems to be a fairly random selection of elements that don't stretch. For example some groups and cells stretch, but not others. Some lines don't stretch and sometimes whole shapes or groups just get left behind. When none of the elements stretch we get the message "X No Elements in fence" in the message centre.
There is a similar issue with the selection tool (not sure if it's related) where some lines / groups of lines have to be selected one at a time as the selection tool misses them.
Has anyone encountered this issue? Any solutions?
We are using:
Micro Station Power Draft Connect - Update 10 Version 10.10.00.23
And we are running on various Windows 10 computers.
I haven't seen this. Are you able to make a test case? Then it could be tested on full Microstation to see if it's a Powerdraft problem.
Yes, I'll jump on this in the morning! Thanks
I've seen this a few times in recent days and I'm using ABD U4
No consistency with when or what it doesn't stretch but it is very annoying and time consuming to correct!
Also happens with different drawing files
currently using OBD 10.09.01.38
I'm having difficulty replicating this issue in a file to send out, as Ian has said below there doesn't seem to be a consistency with what will or will not stretch.
I have noticed that removing references / simplifying the files reduces the issue. However, this doesn't help us resolve the problem as detail drawings are fairly complex by nature.
This is an example of the fence stretch problem which has just occurred
ABD U4 2D file no reference files attached
before.jpg shows fence placement and after.jpg shows what happened to the fence stretch when completed
the door which is a cell and the plaster lines as well as randomly a couple of the metal stud partitions remain in place and the remainder of the stud partitions which are a grouped element and the insulation move as instructed
ctrl Z puts everything back and the choice is either to abandon the stretch command and modify fence to then move the elements or accept that the fence stretch doesn't work and move (in this case the plaster lines and door) as a separate set of commands
