Paths the should be smoothed are sometimes not
I'm very much a learner here; I keep trying to get into CC3+, bouncing off it then coming back for another attempt. Recently I uninstalled my programmes in an attempt to 'clean up' my install.
Now noodling around with map-making, a frustrating issue has arisen.
On a quite random basis, drawing tools that should draw smoothed paths are drawing unsmoothed lines i.e. straight lines between the nodes. This may be specific to the Pete Fenlon revisited style. Often, if I try to draw a river using the default tool i.e. just left clicking the Default River button, I end up with a line with acute corners. Then at other times in a new map, exactly the same clicks produce a nice curved river! The command line and tool tip show 'smooth path: first point' but the resultant line is not smoothed. The problem is most reproducible with the Terrain Ridge tool, which is never smoothed!
Testing continues and, as yet, this doesn't seem to happen with other styles.
Have I messed something up with my re-install? I'm finding this rather frustrating and I fear I'm about to bounce off the learning curve again.
Any help much appreciated.
