Dimension Text Properties Tab display not updating properly

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create several text blocks with any text and place in new drawing. I am using the top view.
  2. Click on screen to insure focus removed from side panels.
  3. Select any text block. Included picture shows result.
    Work around: Select ‘object’ icon in properties tab, then the ‘text’ icon. The panel refreshes properly.
    Once panel is displayed properly, clicking on other text block items in sequence works as expected. If you select empty area of screen, then any text block, then the panel blanks out again. Hovering/moving the mouse over the panel are will refresh some of the items on the panel.

Hello - so far I do not see this here. As far as I know there are not other reports of this, which makes me think it may be a particular combination of W7 and the ATI card. I am still testing though…


Thank you. In the mean time I will look at the AMD Radeon Settings to see if I may have changed anything that might cause these issues.

@jamiechi - fyi, there is another report of similar behavior - SR 14 but W10 and nVidia graphics…

And, here in SR14, I do not see what you report but I do see weird Properties behavior when selecting text.



This is exactly what I see.

FWIW I was also able to repro on GTX 1060 / Win 10 with 6.14

This issue seems to have been resolved in a recent update. Thank you.
