Dear Corona team, I really don't understand the logic behind removing the “Legacy behavior” checkbox from the round edges map in corona 8.

It is a useful feature for many users as already discussed on forum when round edges behavior was first changed in Corona 1.6. 
Workaround for this is to use map from older scenes but why complicate.
In my opinion the checkbox was not only there to keep compatibility with older versions but as great additional feature to round edges map.
Instead of removing it I suggest renaming it to "ignore overlapping edges" or something similar.

Please consider this for some hotfix for Corona 8.Thanks!

Thanks, we have this logged with multiple possibilities such as bringing back the "legacy" checkbox or adding this as a regular feature.

Agree with Marijan, the legacy behavior should be a feature!

It would be really helpful to have the legacy option, as a lot of times the 3d models of the buildings are not clean, and with the new option there are a lot of round edges where there should not be.
The legacy option solved this easily, the other option is to remodel the objects :/

in addition to this, the legacy mode made it possible to round the edges of thin objects, I vote 'yes" if this functionality is returned)

TBH, I use this feature in every scene.
Besides bringing it back, it would be best if you named it. It's not a "legacy", it's the main feature!

Hm... there's a "Legacy behavior" option/checkbox. Have you tried it?

Actually, there isn't in Corona 8 - from the release blog, "– From now on, the “Legacy behavior” checkbox is not visible in newly created Corona Round Edges maps. For already created Corona Round Edges maps it remains visible if already checked."

There isn't one in Corona 8 for 3ds Max, that's why I started this discussion.
Unfortunately this is also not changed in Corona 8 hotfix 2.
Looks like we have to hope for a better future :)

As a workaround, you can temporarily install older Corona version, where this feature is still present, apply material with rounded edges map to some dummy object and save max scene to well accessible place. Everytime you'll need legacy option, you will have to merge that dummy object in your current scene and grab the map from it. Not ideal situation, but still better than nothing.
I'm not Corona Team member. Everything i say, is my personal opinion only.
