Why is with formZ 7.0.0.1 that regarding the Lofting Suite of Modeling Tool Icons, that a few of the Lofting Tool graphics Look exactly the Same?

See the Tangent Loft and the Other Lofting Tool Icons that share the Same or so Closley the Same Graphics Tool Icons.

Hi Dan,

These tools do very similar things, which is why the same source shapes are used for the icon, and if you look closely you can see that the transition between the shapes occurs differently...

(Perhaps we can make this difference a little more obvious in the future...)

'(Perhaps we can make this difference a little more obvious in the future...)' Exactly. It is just a little tricky seting-up ones Head up Display and selecting actually the Correct Lofting Tool you desire and geeting it exactly right the first time.

I had to delete what I thought was the lofting tool that I desired and only to find out later that I selected the Wrong Lofting Tool. Hence, the need for a distinction in this regard.

Thanks!
