Dimension fonts not correctly aligned. Cut off. Archicad 26 build 5002

We recently applied the lastest Archicad 26 Update.. 5002 and have noticed that the alignment of all dimension text is below the dimension line and cut off.

It is only the case with certain fonts (including our standard font).When I change the font to arial the is no problem.

Hi All,

Thank you for bringing up these topics.

We've released Archicad 26 Update 3 (50xx) with a number of bug fixes, some of which address text-font handling aspects. The first issue described in this thread about the dimension values covering and overlapping the dimension lines is a new defect, which we aim to solve in the next update (60xx).
As a workaround, please switch to WordCompatible mode, which can be activated in the registry (change this value to 1):
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\GRAPHISOFT\ARCHICAD\Archicad XX\Textengine\WordCompatibleMode

 

Barry is correct about the second issue of this post. It is a different error when the text is cut off and this can happen on a 4K resolution display, with the text scaling set above 100%.
We are also aware of this bug and plan to fix it in the next update (60xx).

 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Kind regards,

Norbert Kucsma
