I'm in the process of regressio n testing my previousl y published simulatio n models of
of an E Howard Tower Clock mechanism and a chronomet er.

I stumbled across an oddity while trying to replace component s on the clocks with my indicator s
that I had used before.  The indicator s would not load.  At first I thought perhaps that
my dxf files of the indicator s were somehow corrupted .  I then realized that any of the
standard indicator s, for instance alien hour hand, loaded with the hand completel y filled in.
The same held true for any of the other standard indicator s that had cutouts.

The solution to my problem was to make sure that "decoratio ns" were enabled within gearotics .
Once I enabled decoratio ns the different indicator s loaded properly.  I now know to always have
decoratio ns enabled.

I don't really consider this a bug merely an undocumen ted feature of the decoratio ns settings.

Thanks for your feedback Bill.
 I agree, so many little things to keep in mind when dealing with gears and spokes, yet another example. By default, the "no decoratio n" is set unless users decide to do so and check on the enable box.

Cheers
