Selection Intent in Lines and Curves in NX 11.0.1

NX 11.0.1 delivers a few enhancements that improve selection intent when working with lines and curves.

Line Normal Enhancement

When creating a line normal to a surface/curve/face, you can now select connected entities. Prior to NX 11.0.1 you were only allowed to select a single face or curve. Furthermore, now when you edit and move the point to a different entity, the normal is recalculated to provide a correct result.

Selection Intent for Point Along Curve

Prior to NX 11.0.1, you could create a point along a curve by either Arc Length, Arc Length % or Parameter. The point was created based on the start of the curve, and you had no control over the precise location of the start of the curve.

Now you are able to reverse the curve start point, which allows you to control from which end of the curve you want to begin the calculation.
