Hello

Even if it seems to me that it is a nonsense to use them together, a French user fell on a bug that appears if we use tabs + tab leadins + tangent leadin.

In this case an extra leadin (an half circle) is added on the toolpath leadin at the last or two last paths. It is superimposed on the normal leadin for this level as we can see on the picture 2 ... first an half circle is cut, then the normal leadin is cut.

edit: same bug on 0.98 .. and in fact the extra circle leadin appears on all level that are bellow the tabs level.

hello David
the error is not new.
It only occurs at the starting point if you use lead in at holding tabs and rectangular holding tabs.
I only use triangular holding tabs because they are better for protecting the front edge of the cutter. Lead ins on rectangular holding tabs make no sense at all. They do not prevent a cutter from plunging vertically, they just move it to a different position.
