Dimensioning Graphic Bug

DGSketcher
Rockstar

Anyone else noticing that where an opaque value is applied to the dimension string at some point the first dimension masking drops and wipes out the dimension line?

 

It can be fixed with "Revert to Automatic Position", but there is no easy way to apply that to all dimensions and you may not want to anyway if text has been moved to a custom position.

 

Not a disaster but definitely not a good reflection on our presentation skills. ☹️

Has been criticized for years. Shame!

Don't know why that is so hard to fix.

@DGSketcher Slightly different but similar. The first dim on the string was OK until I dragged it.

Then even though it was moved horizontally the box enlarged enough to cover the line

@David Shorter That one has bugged me for years. You drag a text parallel to the dimension line but it still repositions itself when placed.

@DGSketcher the text doesn't move the box gets bigger as far as I can see. Note the angle in my image above
