|Summary||0003592: Setting line geometry properties display errors|
|Description||I'm running into a few difficulties setting accurate line geometry properties:|
3) The tooltips are wrong when the above combobox is set to "endpoints" (they still say width, height, etc.) and switching to another frame and back in this mode causes the fourth field to become grayed out and inaccessible. I believe this setting may be incorrectly being transferred from the other line basepoint mode (along with the tooltips), where that field is height and does not apply to lines.
This special case extra mode for lines might be removable if both bounding box and frame/shape nodes (here line endpoints) could be used as basepoints for all frames (see 0003591).

I've submitted separate reports for points 1 (see 0000689 & 0003751 & 0007287) and 2 (see 0003752).
For point 3, everything seems to work wrong when the "basepoint" option in the lines tab is set to "endpoints": tooltips, changing coordinates, display.... You'll have to try it to see.
Also look at the last two screenshots in bug 0003424 for an example of incorrect behavior when changing coordinates.
I have looked:
-- Tooltips are wrong: which tab/which fields? What would be the correct ones?
>>>This special case extra mode for lines might be removable if both bounding box and frame/shape nodes (here line endpoints) could be used as basepoints for all frames
Exactly. The current approach seems quite clumsy to me. From a usability point of view, this needs improvement.
||Looks like the report was edited and removed issues that were fixed. So the context is hard to understand. Can someone help me understand if this issue is still relevant?|
||I'm uploading an image of the line geometry tab in the PP. Can someone point out where OP is referring to in point 3) in the summary?|
||Christoph, can you shed some light on this?|
Closing per christoph's request:
>> I suggest closing 3592. It has been so heavily edited that it's no longer clear what mkoren originally meant.
