Tweak tool on spiro paths straightens all segments

Bug #240176 reported by Daniel Prien on 2008-06-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

add circle, convert to path, add spiro splines LPE..
tweaktool on shape turns all curves to straight lines

Thomas Hicks (hicks-kingtom) wrote :

This is caused by the fact that the simplify operation converts all smooth nodes, and replaces them with newly positioned corner nodes. This then causes the spiro spline code to see that section as a strait line and not a curve section.

Spiros and Tweak simply do not mix. We need to think how to enforce that their separation.

status: New → Confirmed

Same bug with Eraser and any LPE.

Perhaps all Tweak Tool and Eraser should be LPE powered.

Using the mode "push part of path" I see the bad effect.

By design this is imposible to fix, you need to convert item to pats to flatten LPE. Please mark as wont fix.
Maybe we can show a message about in the status bar.
