Bug with pen tool and undo RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I'm using Microsoft Expression Blend 2.5 March 2008 Preview Version 2.1.1113.0 and I came across what I think is a bug in the pen tool when your designing a silverlight page.

    To reproduce:
    1. click file / new project / and select Silverlight 1 Site
    2. Press P to select the pen tool
    3. Place a point on the canvas, then move to another spot on the canvas, and hold down the left mouse button and move the mouse to create a smooth curve.
    4. Hit edit undo.

    Note that the first point originally didn't have a handle, but now its inherritted the handle of the second point.

    Heres an animation demonstrating it:

    It kinda annoying since theres no 'rubber band' feature for the pen tool, i instead use control z to test if I've placed the point in the right spot...but it causes the previous point changes to a different direction...so if you could fix this that would be awesome :D

    I Appologuise if this has already been reported, and/or this is in the wrong forum.

    Thanks for reading :)

  • Thank you, David.  I'm able to replicate this in Blend 2.5, but not Blend 2.  I'll investigate and file the bug if one doesn't already exist.
