Help on skSetInitialGuess?

dave_cowdendave_cowden Member, Developers Posts: 456 ✭✭✭
I need a little guidance on how this works. I'm getting into scripting sketches, and I really can't find any examples or documentation about how to use this function.

For simple sketches I have found that omitting it works ok. But as soon as I've started using skText, and skLineSegment,
I find that my text doesn't behave unless I use skSetInitialGuess. But then the text appears to go all over the place. 

I can see from creating a PartStudio that setting the initialGuess for an skText has 5 parameters, and an skLineSegment appears to have 6 parameters.

What are the values in the array?

    skSetInitialGuess is not meant for interactive use.  It looks like we're missing some documentation for skText.  Try using firstCorner and secondCorner fields in the map argument, as documented for other sketch functions.
