Thanks for your quick reply.
The text dots are created with elefront and fed into a custom preview component with a color swatch, so that the text dot has a distinctive color.
I’m using grasshopper in conjunction with rhino geometry so I can quickly edit geometry. On the screenshots above you see a rhino mesh, which is referenced into GH and kept up to date with a timer. The mesh goes through kangaroo and is being baked with a name with an elefront bake component. This replaces the input mesh from before. It’s like a loop.
For me, it is important to have dimensions and text dots on top / in front of rhino geometry cause I work with rhino geometry all the time. Of course I can set the viewport to wiremesh mode and apply a transparent preview color to the mesh in GH. That solves the issue with the dimensions and text dots. However that way it takes two clicks to select a mesh face via a boundary…
I understand the issue with keeping the text dots and dimensions in front of other stuff.
But the situation right now, I think is terrible to look at. I tried moving the locations of the dots away from a surface but nothing helps a dot is only drawn with a frame around it and a color when there is strictly nothing behind it. This is terrible to look at and kind of not what I expected from a dot. Isn’t a dot always in front of geometry, I mean also in Rhino?
I’m working with GH for about 7 years, it would take a while to switch my brain from space bar to middle mouse button. Hence I did switch back to Space is Radial, especially because my middle mouse button creates a double left click. I’m using a 3D connexion CAD mouse.
