Short description of error
Cutting large objects with the knife tool in edit mode leads to undesired / unpredictable topology

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Create a plane 100m (I'm an environment / level artist, so this is a pretty typical size)
Enter into edit mode
Activate the knife tool & cut any kind of a shape (preferably an ngon)
Observe strange triangulation / bad geometry

Create a plane 2m
Enter into edit mode
Activate the knife tool & cut the same shape
Ngon is correctly cut into the object.

Can't reproduce this with the steps provided. This is probably a duplicate of T65585 but I can cut a 100m plane without any issues. So you need to be a bit more specific (and preferably provide a sample .blend file).
