Arc (two Point) issue (Curve Toolbox)

Hello! 

I am having an issue with Arc (two point) tool.

So when I do it manually, 2 points on curve, 3rd point for the centre of arc - it looks all fine, from one point of view!
Then I try to choose manually 2 points on curve and type in the arc radius and I become multiple choices of circle and the issue is: I can't define the plane of the arc, circle..

 

So you see, that the arc always lies in one specific plane and it seems, that for manual choice of arc centre the Alias is using only a X direction. When I type the arc radius, the arc centre is sometimes in Y direction, sometimes in X direction.. sometimes in some random direction? so is there any way to set the vector of arc centre and enter the value of arc radius?

@karel_povolny2ZHH9 Hi,
have you tried to create the Arc when using the hotkeys for orthographic views (F5-F7) It seems to work when using these views.

Thanks Kaiti!

That actually works. So in the basic planes I can create the Arc in desired direction with desired radius.

 

Still there might be an Issue, that you are not able to set your ideal vector in the tool. Maybe you will have to create an extra construction plane for that...

@karel_povolny2ZHH9 yes, it is currently not implemented to use a vector.
Utilizing a construction plane as a workaround is not sufficient?

Hi Kai,
Yes I can live with that, but the vector option would be nice to have. So I don't have to create new construction plane for every arc in different direction.
