Column A object changes to column B after editing stitch angle -e4.1Q

Is it normal for a column A object to change to a column B object after editing the stitch angle (without its corresponding node)? I'm working with e4.1Q.


(note the stitch angles & column type)

when I move the stitch angle alone (without the node), it changed to column B:


More testing: Here, I changed the angles to match up with the node and object reverted back to a column A.


2nd problem/question:
Why does the 2nd underlay (zigzag) of the red objects (158 & 159) look odd?
In the pink objects (160 & 161), I changed the 2nd underlay from "By Shape" to "By segment" and that made the zigzag underlay appear normal. Is this what is expected?
(note: I can't explain why some of the objects are complex turning objects. (I initially used the autodigitizing to get a ballpark stitch count for customer. I then went back and manually digitized the entire design (in the same file, using "save as" )

Hi Pascale,

The Column A to Column B conversion is expected. Technically, and Column A is column stitch where the stitch angles match perfectly to a right and left node.

An Column B is a column object where where the stitch angle does not match exactly notes on either side. So if you move a stitch angle off an Column A object node, then it becomes an Column B. If you move it back, it will become an Column A again.

2nd problem:

In this case the object has been converted to a Turning Complex object. Try Selecting the object, then under the Underlay tab, change the 'By Shape' to 'By Segment'.
