Trimming to a Circle Bug?

N/A

If I draw a circle and then draw something that crosses the circle and do a trim
of the line that crosses the circle, it doesn't actually trim the line to the circle.
You have to zoom way in on the trimmed line and you will see that it is crossing
the circle rather than trimmed to the circle. Is this a known bug.
Thanks,
Ed

Ed,

I am sure this is simply a display issue. The circle may not be represented exactly as a circle and you are probably seeing where a VERY small line segment is crossing another line and they do not seem to trim exactly. The problem with computers is that they are not exact when it comes to superimposing a circle onto a display that is broken up into rectangular pixels.

Andy,
I hadn't noticed the effect before so I thought it might be a bug. Glad to hear
it isn't.
