Summary0000874: Linear Pattern does not reference X,Y,Z correctly if part was made from the XZ, or YZ planes
DescriptionIn FCv013 - If Part was created on XY, the X,Y,Z check boxes (for direction to apply pattern in) follow the reference arrows on btm right of screen.

If Part was created on XZ, or YZ, the X,Y,Z check boxes are not referenced properly (choose X, part is copied in the Y or Z direction).

The pattern works always in reference to the sketch of the underlaying object.
So x,y,z are missleading. I would probably remove x,y,z and require allways
selection of an edge or face..

Mhh, there is no right solution to this. I would remove the x,y,z stuff
and let the user only use the selection for the direction.

rmoved x,y,z cause makes no sence. User can not determine the position and
orientation of the sketch. So only selection of a line or face makes sense.

The original idea was that X,Y,Z represent the Body Feature coordinate system. Until the Body feature is introduced, we just use the X,Y,Z of the untransformed very initial feature of a PartDesign feature. The logic was consistent even if it wasn't transparent to the users.

Another fix for this would be to leave only two options X,Y and refer to the sketch axes. However this solution would still be inconsistent with the polar pattern feature where we would also need a Z-axis, we could use the Z axis of the sketch. We can discuss about this.

I thing removing these options at all is not a proper solution.

Even the coordinates due to the body object is hard to deal for the user.
The Body can be moved in the assembly and the X,Y,Z has again no meaning.
Also the base sketch is not visibly normally.
And if you have a recalculation in the history which move the sketch? Change
the angle, because it sits on a face which get moved?
The only thing makes sense to me would be a U,V coordinate system due to the sketch. Thats always defined.

In the Body we can allow to select the Body base coordinate system axis.

I am suggesting this solution:

what do you think?
