[SOLVED] Pcb arc trouble

I wanted to let someone know of a possible program problem… I am making some cutout slots with 1/2 circle ends on a user drawing layer (it really does not matter what layer you draw them on). Anyway, when I draw an arc angle of 180 degrees. It will let me do it, but if I edit it to change the arc width or anything else, even if I I don’t change anything and only click OK, it gives me an error like this… ‘Invalid Arc with radius 1296292123659882463232.000000 and angle 1800.000000’

I have found that I modify the arc and manually make it 180.1 degrees or 179.9 degrees, or anything other than 180 (although I have not tried all of them! ) it doesn’t complain any more.

Is this something I am doing wrong or is it a program problem?

Thanks for reminding me. I edited my post with the information.

I just found out that I am behind a little in my program updates, so will try updating and see if that cures anything.

Indeed, this sounds like Impossible to create arcs of 180° (#10841) · Issues · KiCad / KiCad Source Code / kicad · GitLab which has been fixed in the latest bugfix release.

Thanks for the information! Yes, I just updated to version 6.0.4 and that problem went away.
