Default what happened to nurbs Isoparms??

since version 8.5 there is some real strange behavior going on with nurbs isoparms. I cannot select them anymore like I did usually. instead of I have to drag select over the whole surface, then isoparms are shown in a weird offset. so i have to diselect all isoparms i dont need. this is such a boring workflow. itīs not only a matter with my machine.

are there some settings to change back to a normal and like usual isoparm selection. autodesk crazyness..!!

Falot I don't know what you have done but I have 8.5 and Isoparm selection works just the same for me , just right click slect isoparm and choose one , L click and drag for a new one.

I have checked the preferences and I can't see what might might cause your problem.

Maybe it's just one of those random Maya gliches. Maybe resarting would solve the problem.

ok the only thing I could find that even slightly simulated your problem was in the preferences.

so go to window/ setting/preferences /preferences then under display select Nurbs and then look at surface precision and check to see if it is on standard.

thx for your quick reply! this is so odd. I was crating a new scene to try and everything works just fine. I canīt even reproduce my own problem no matter what. Didnīt even change any settings. I have to test it tomorrow on the other machines.
