Summary0003484: Open paths are closed upon upgrade
DescriptionOpen paths imported from SVG files are closed with an additional straight edge upon upgrade in the Draft workbench.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create an SVG file with a single path comprising three nodes (see also bug 0003483).
2. Import the file into the Draft workbench as geometry.
3. Select the path and use the upgrade tool.

Expected result:

The path is converted to a Wire (or a Block, or other object that can be displayed in the Drawing workbench) as it is.

Actual result:

The path is converted to a Wire object and closed.

The attached file contains four paths to demonstrate the problem. The problem described above can be triggered by an attempt to import path №1 or №2 (one at a time). If upgraded together (both selected) they are upgraded properly to a Block without closing any of them.

Gift's reply in the topic created by Kunda1 clearly proves that it's working as designed, not a bug.

My question in 0003483 stands, what would be the reason to upgrade a single edge path in the first place. Hence, this should have been discussed over the forum before creating this issue.

  • if there is only one open wire in the selection, it gets closed
  • if there are only edges in the selection, all edges are joined into a wire (closed if possible)

As per my previous comment, the tool works just as advertised.
