Padding not working in Clipping Area mode (A2S)
« on: April 17, 2015, 12:52:49 PM »
Hi all
I have been trying to shift/offset  the main surface area so that it does not penetrate the surrounding frame.
I tried the padding but this does not affect the Array2S .
Version 2.46

Hi Nir,

I'm afraid this is a limitation of the Generator > Padding feature. It does not work with Extend X/Y Size to area. In this case I would recommend aligning the frame so that it runs on the outside of the spline instead of the inside.

Many thanks,

Paul

Thx
I was afraid that wiould be the answer. In thios case the frame is hiding what is beneath so no harm but I guess there would be cases it will be a must.
