Civil 3D / Map 3D Hotfix

Civil 3D / Map 3D Hotfix

By Matt Kolberg, Application Specialist at SolidCAD 

Autodesk has release a new hotfix for Civil 3D and map 3D 2018.  The issue occurs when grip-editing an AutoCAD arc and some other objects.  The position of the mouse is different from the position of the grabbed vertex. 

The issue occurs when you move the vertex a second time within the same selection and only for AutoCAD Objects.  There are two other problems this hotfix addresses.
