Bug / feature in shape builder tool

  • The video should describe the issue okay but in words... if I use divide on these three ellipses and activate the shape editor I see more or less the expected number of nodes.

    The second I activate the shape builder tool I see more and results are less than great sometimes.

    I discovered this when using the shape builder on various shapes that were the result of divide operations.

    You can see nodes come and go when I toggle between shape editor and shape builder tool.

  • Cutting with the knife and trying to use the shape builder results in lots of nodes:

    @Ingolf Yes, the Divide results in overlapping edges and these are difficult to handle for the shape builder (as well as subsequent boolean operations).

    I have an open bug on these issues.
