background fill for DIMMENTIONS TEXTs

Anonymous
Not applicable
When drawing is too complicated and full of dimentions, and other lines
sometimes there is no free space to place dimmention text on free site.
Then we trying to cut sum unnesesory elements to free some space for dimention text.

It will be nice, if native DIMENTION TEXT will have BACKGROUND FILL
parameter, like usual Archicad text tool. And most usefull -
Window Background option. (№ -1)

In my opinion all text settings of particular tools should be uniform, so we could use all existing features of formated text for dimensions, notes/labels, S/E markers, drawing titles etc. That means one uniform interface for text tweaking throughout entire AC UI. I think this has been mentioned on this forum somewhere and I often feel like we are just repeating ourself over and over...

If we do that then we will loose the

"We have MORE tools and settings than all other existing CAD software combined"

argument. plus it is too logical and it would make it too easy. GS will never go for it.

If the choices are make it simpler and flexible I will bet it becomes complex and inflexible.
