2D : Rectangle (?)
Why doesn't have Bricscad a real Rectangle Object,
like it has e.g. a parametric Circle Object ?
I think the Rectangle is the most important Object in 2D Drawing.
Currently, what is called "Rectangle" is only a standard PolyLine
(not even a Polygon that could have a Fill Color)
that will just be "created" in the same fashion as a Rectangle would,
but immediately loses all its intelligence.
I am missing an Option to see AND edit Length and Width in Property Palette.
(like a Circle has)
I miss the Option in Edit Mode, to grab a Vertex, to change its Dimensions graphically.
Currently its Rectangle-ness will be destroyed by losing parallelism as it is a only a
PolyLine. (+SHIFT option, to keep its Aspect Ratio while dragging)
Currently I would need to grab 2 Edges after each other to get the same result.
I would like to have a DTP-like approach of choosing the Origin, from where numerical
input changes (like in #1) will be applied, in Property Palette.
(mid point; bottom left; bottom; left; top; .....)
I miss a simple color Fill option for (any closed!) 2D Objects
(separate Stroke+Fill color welcome, but even a single color would help)
Currently I would need to convert into an Area Object, which will lose all parametric.
And of course with not in a one-time-only command behavior but multiple use default
option like the Line Tool.
The reason, beside just 2D CAD Drawing in general, I recently did a 2D Layout (Brochure)
in familiar Vectorworks (Instead of a real DTP App like Scribus) as I am more used to it
and it worked great.
I tried to test if I could find Workflows in Bricscad do similar and was a bit shocked
how much more unneeded complicated it is there and how much more Clicks I will
need for similar operations.
