I am modifying a GS hedge object to make it a little more useful for myself.
I want to add a ‘grass’ symbol line type to the perimeter in plan to make it look a little more hedgy.
This works fine when the perimeter is closed on a curved hedge.
But as soon as I use the masking code to turn off the line for one edge the line on the inside curve inverts for some reason.
There is no problem at all for a straight hedge – only when the polygon has a curve it seems.
Here is the code used for the polygon.
rad = 1.000
breit = 0.500
wink = 90
end_1_swch = 1
end_2_swch = 0 !!change to 1 to close polygon
Even using ARC2 won’t help as you can’t reverse the direction of the line and can’t use a negative radius.
Is this a bug (and if so can it be fixed)?
Any ideas for a solution that doesn’t involve creating a new symbol line type that is reversed in the y direction and then using two polygons with various edges hidden or not?
I am guessing that the positive y portion of a symbol line will always project towards the centre of an arc unless in a closed polygon with visible edges in which the direction can be reversed depending on the order of node scripting.
