Hi, please try using Tree Editor->Creation Tools->Along a Path.

Custom Edit mode is more suitable for this type of distribution. Generate mode can use a open spline, but in a different way (it generates a closed area around the spline).

Hi,

in version 6, there is no more "creation tools" option in the "Item Editor", and it seems to have change its name from tree to item too ...

please any help would great , i can 't get my hedges distributed and oriented along a spline.

thx

EDIT : I'm seeing that there is a new distribution mode "path" but the follow path option is not resulting ... my hedges geometries keeps on wrong orientation.
