Spline, Cubic Bezier tool is missing from the drawing tools in FromZ 7? This was extreamely easy to draw with, what has happened to it. Trying to draw with the Spline or BzSpline is far more tricky and time consuming in my opinion. Please can we have the functionality of the old Spline, Cubic bezier tool back?!

David,

The current BZ Spline tool is exactly the same as the Spline, Cubic Bezier tool -- except that in formZ 7 the second click defines the tangency, whereas it is the third click in formZ 6.

If you prefer drawing with the third click defining the tangency, then we can add an option for this. :-)

Zweb,

Please put me down for the option.

Thanks,

Gentlemen,

I should have pointed out that you can currently draw the exact same shape in formZ 7 that you did in formZ 6 if you simply put two control points at the desired starting point before drawing the rest of the curve...

Above, you can see that the two curves match -- at least if we snap the cursor to the end point of the reference polyline...
