Summary0002582: Polar array axis selectiion fails
DescriptionPart Design, FC version 0.17.7709 (Git)

Unable to select alternate axis for polar pattern. "Select reference..." appears to work, with no error messages, but the new selected axis is not used. Log trace appears to show correct selection, but when PolarPattern task is exited with the "OK" button the selection reverts back to the basic body axis.

Reported on forum:
Steps To Reproduce1. Start with new document in FC17.
2. Create body.
3. Create basic block through the normal sketch and pad procedures.
4. Create helper pad by creating sketch on top face of basic block and padding.
5. Create prototype hole by creating sketch on top face of block and pocketing.
6. Create polar pattern.
-- Set the number of holes.
-- Choose "Select reference..." in the axis drop-down menu item and click on a vertical edge of the helper pad.
-- No error messages, but the axis does not change.
-- Log trace shows the correct axis is selected, but when the "OK" is clicked to finish the polar task the axis reverts back to (0,0,0).

FYI "helper pads" were a workaround used to circumvent the fact that sketches needed to be mapped to planar faces for PartDesign features to be added to/subtracted from a part. This workaround is no longer necessary in 0.17 since the merge of PartDesign Next and the introduction of the Body container. You should not expect the workflow you were used to in 0.16 to be the same in 0.17.

That being said, I confirm that "Select reference..." is not working.

Attached case file for review.

1. Edit PolarPattern
2. In the "Axis" field, pick "Select reference..."
3. Select either Edge26 or DatumLine.
4. Selection has no effect.
