ISSUE #3 -- Failure of commands nearing RIGHT edge of model space work area.

This issue applies to TC LTE ver. 5 (64-bit)

The LINE command appears to function normally -- until you are within 3 or 4 inches of the right edge of the model space work area.  When you enter this "TWILIGH ZONE," the line commands cease working.

I am using a 22" View Sonic LED monitor (wide aspect ratio) and I have NO problems with other graphic programs -- Adobe Illustrator, Sketchup Pro, etc.  NONE!

What is really odd is that when I move the area I'm working on to the left -- toward the center of the screen -- the LINE commands work properply.   I have not checked to see if this glitch also happens close to the left edge of the model space work area.  I will and let you know.  UPDATE:  The line commands appear to work correctly close to the left edge of the model space area, but the 3 or 4 inch area (that's significant) near the right edge of the model space work area is a "dead zone." 

I just checked my TC LTE ver. 4, and the same problem exists with the "dead zone."  Jeez!

Louisaz, I have been unable to replicate the line not working in v4 or v5. Has anyone else tripped over this?

No problems here snapping along the right edge. One anomaly I do notice, is when starting a Line too close to the edge; the Length field slides under the Angle field. I have no problem establishing a start point or subsequent points next to the right edge with the Line tool.

John, me too in 'vanilla'. The same happens in Pro. Confirmed. Also, if you drag down to the bottom of the screen, 'Define Start...' slides under. To me, not a big problem. Perhaps because I am an easy going Kiwi?
