RE:Auto Fit Zoom
Greetings,

It is a strange anomoly.  If you increase the diameter to .25 it is still (slightly) off center.  If you leave the .035 diameter but shorten to a .001 disc then it centers!

If you explode the cylinder to a wireframe that is 8" long then does not center.  Circles -wireframe- center no matter what size.  Adjusting screen dimensions on  the tools panel has no effect.  Changing from Directx11 to open gl2 has no effect.

Try this:  draw an .001 circle at 0,0,0.  It autoscales fine.  Now move it in x direction 1000".  It autoscales centered but is no longer a circle!

Will refer this thread to tech support.  While I wouldn't lose sleep over it they should be made aware of this behavior.

All the best,
Mike

RE:Auto Fit Zoom
Mike,

You are right.  The problem has apparently been there a while.  I tried it on V14.0.1 (3666) and I get the squiggly circle you desribe.  What's up with all of that?

Best regards,

Jay

RE:Auto Fit Zoom
The graphics system is about half as precise as the data models. What you are seeing are little bits of drift because of the graphics card rounding off numbers.
