Dimension Text Background Opacity

Paul Roper
Booster

Hi all,


I've just installed Archicad 27 3001 NZE Full.

 

I've noticed that when I create a Dimension object, with Text Style set to have an Opaque background, the text box appears behind the dimension line (as per attached image).

 

This behavior is not what I have come to expect. Is there a toggle or option I am missing?

 

I am aware of the Within Line option, but this is not what I am looking for as it does not behave as I would expect with my current workflow (for example: if I want to manually relocate the text box due to clashes with something else in the drawing).

I tried to edit the Display Order, but this setting does not appear to apply to Dimension text boxes.

 

Operating system used: Windows 11

Select the dimension line and not just the text and there will be a display order setting.
