Shape Union Bug? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'm doing a floor plan, and have several room rectangles and several connecting door rectangles that overlap from room to room.

I can "union" the rooms together until they reach a certain size, then the union stops working.

You can repeat it by doing this...

On a virgin single page canvas, draw a rectangle that stretches from the left side of the page to the right side.

Draw another on from the top to the bottom. You've just made a big cross.

Select both rectangles and perform an "Edit->Shapes->Union" command. You *should* get a nice cross shape with no overlaping lines. But you dont.

Make the rectangles smaller, about half the page size, and try again. Then it works.

Is it just me?

Just tried it and I had no problems getting the union - A4 portrait page size, fwiw.
Here's a screen shot of what happens with the large and small unions. I can get it to do this repeatedly. :-(

I get it. This image is of two unions: the left hand one is one union of two rectangles, the right hand one is one union of three rectangles:

Seems dependant on the width:height ratio, as exemplified in the right hand union - the two "fat" rectangles are fine, the thin one "crosses over".

No, it isn't just you, I'm having this problem in another context. Yesterday I couldn't union shapes at all, they always overlapped in weird ways. Today I could union shapes fine, up to a point -- then something about the complexity of the shape or who knows what made all future unions not work. Very frustrating, wasted a lot of time. Anyone ever see an answer to this?
