    Problem editing Draw shapes when stretching a diagonal vertice

      VX2.3 & VX2.4

      When modifying a draw object that includes a diagonal line such as a chamfer
      on a plane shape, the shapes chamfer vertices jump and create new odd angled
      vertices which distort the original shape outline. i.e. I'm trying to drag the
      middle draw handle to increase/decrease the size of the chamfer or shaping when
      the problem occurs. I'm noticing this when modifying plane shapes but I
      believe it applies to all polygon draw objects. When I first create the
      shape I have no problem modifying the shape afterwards, but if I wait and
      comeback hours/days later (maybe after reloading the database) I can no longer
      edit the shape without it going bonkers on the diagonal edits. I typically
      always use a grid and a 45 degree angle restriction to create clean split
      planes when drawing shapes. This frequently occurs but not all of the time.
      It can happen when dragging vertices on
      a diagonal line or an orthogonal line associated to the shape. Turning ON/OFF
      angle lock or grid lock does not change the results. The only way I overcome
      this issue is to use ADD/SUBTRACT shape to create my desired modified shape.
