AEC Polygons Again

98 Views, 3 Replies

So, trying to create a masing polygon for a callout bubble and the polygon changes from curved surfaces to straight segments when I complete the circle.  If I leave a portion of the polygon straight the mask remains curved.  So I made 2 halves of the bubble to mask the entire circular bubble.  If I merge the polygons they become straight segments.


Does anyone have a solution or is this the only workaround?

I'm not sure how you're going about it but I use circular masking polygons and make them by creating a circular polyline (made by splitting a circle, mirroring, and converting to a polyline) and then converting to an aec polygon.

If it plots as a circle then-

Have you checked the FACETRES and VIEWRES settings?

Do you have a visual style set which could affect the appearance?
