Please, send us a test scene. I will check if there is some workaround.

Thanks for the scene. It seems a bug in the way that we compute the segment position. It affects only to no-bend mode.

Unfortunately there is not workaround at this time. We'll fix the bug in the next update. I apologize by the inconveniences.

Yes, we introduced a new algorithm to compute no-bend distances in version 2.1.3 that fixed this problem, but it was generating wrong results in other parts of the plugin. Unfortunately we had to revert to the old method in v.2.1.5.

For the next beta series, we'll work again in this problem and fix the new algorithm. I'm sorry by the inconveniences.
