Selection Allowed and Location changes when we redefine dependent points

Hi.


Let be a dependent point (see attachment) with the property of Location Graphics2 activated and the properties of Selection Allowed, Location Graphics and Location 3D Graphics disabled. Each time that object is redefined, all that properties changes.


It is quite annoying, and it does not happen with free points. Is there any way to avoid it?


Greetings,

Rafa.

This is a feature (not a bug) from the time before GGB has scripts (release 3?)

Rule (about): if is in x or y of a point the name of a slider and nothing else, then the value of the slider and the point are synchron in both ways.

for supress this feature use a expression:

A=(2k/2, 2)

Note: also A=(1k,2) works but the "1" is not showing

.

Alternative (if k is a fix-constant):

set in properties of k in the tab "slider" min=2 and max=2

.

Alternative (if the point A is movable on the y-Axis)

A = Point[x = k]

I still think it's a bug. Synchronization is done between values, not between properties. For example, if A = (2k/2, 2) is placed in Graphics View 2 and A is redefined as (3k/3, 2), the same thing happens again: A is again visible in Graphics View!

Sorry,


I have read wrong your description.

Agree, it's a bug.
