Problems with pivotpoint in 5axis mfg

Hi all,

I'm experiencing some problems when using a pivot point in 5axis
surfacemilling lately. It seems as ProE always tries to machine the backside
of my millingsurface everytime that I try to use a pivotpoint. It doesn't
work to try to choose the backside to begin with, and expect ProE to flip
side.
The backside is more correctly described as the side of the surface closest
to the pivotpoint.

Anyone else experiencing this. I've never had this problem before, but I
don't use it often enough to see any connection to a specific build or
version of ProE. We are currently at WF2, M080.

As a workaround I'm currently using a small pivotcurve, but this approach
isn't always an option.

Thanks, Jonas
