It seems that if when placing a dim, if I select Continue or Baseline, once I have completed the command, trying to run again does nothing. Closing and restarting Rhino gets it back.
Dims placed in layout space often fly off of what they were snapped to, often times on double clicking into a detail and back out again. I think this is history related. Is there anyway to turn off history for details to test?
With multiple details on a sheet, editing dimension text is really slow. With no details, it seems much more reasonable. Any change this could be improved? (let me know if you need an example file).
It seems when double clicking a dimension to edit it, I find myself activating a detail much more often then happened in V5. I think this is due to the control points popping on with the first click. If you select a dimension to see were the text position control point is, hover your cursor right over it, hit escape twice to turn of the control points, then double click without moving the mouse, it seems it will always fail to bring up the edit window, but will activate the detail.
Is there a more streamlined way to suppress a leading in 0 on something like 0¾"? Currently I have to override linear units from feet to inches, change linear format back to feet and inches (it automatically changes to decimal when changing to inches), then add " as a suffix. I can’t seem to find a way to access these overrides via the command line to make a macro. To be clear, if this question is having you think about changing how zero suppression currently works, I wouldn’t be interesting in 0 suppression when there is a foot component, such as 1’-0¾", just when the total dimension is less than 1".
Saving from V6 to V5, the dim text is converted from <> to the text of the dimension.
