Auto constraint on lines (48 Document layer)

Please see the attached image.

Once I move the single line to complete the component's boundary, that line will be constrained to the other ones.

From that moment, If I try to move again that line all the other lines will move consequently and the geometry will change.

Hello @FrankEagle ,

 

I hope you're doing well. This behavior is as designed, my guess is that you don't like it in this case. The only solution for now would be to redraw the line segment. 

 

There's no mechanism for disabling this feature.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,

I don't understand what sense it has to automatically create a polygon if not requested.
For example, when I have to create a rectangle that represents the perimeter of the component starting from the dimensions indicated on the component drawing, I first create 1 line in a random position on layer 48 or 21, then copy and paste it 4 times, after which I enter the coordinates of the lines one by one using the inspector.
This workflow conflicts with the automatic constraint because some coordinates automatically change by themselves and need to be rewritten. 

I don't understand the reason of this behavior, it wasn't like that before. 

 

In my opinion things that automatically change when not required result in the user having to double check them.

Hi @FrankEagle,

 

I hope you're doing well. Sounds like a lot of work to draw the outline that way, I tend to just input the points of the corners into the line command to draw a rectangle.

This behavior has been around since early EAGLE, it's not something we have touched. It's possible you haven't run into it before.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

 

Best Regards,

Hi @jorge_garcia2

 

I prefer using single lines to draw information of components's outline.

I generally only draw some alignment angles on tPlace for aesthetic reasons, not whole rectangles, for this reason I don't like this behavior of the software.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Regards
