Dimensions disappear

Hello, I have another weird thing with dimensions. They tend to dissappear when viewed from certain angle in perspective view. Perhaps it has something to do with the option “Orient text toward reader when viewed from behind” - when this option is “off”, it doesn’t happen (but the dimensions are unreadable then). Example screenshots:

Any idea how to fix this?

Hi - I’m not able to reproduce this on my system with a simple test.
Could you (1) post that file, and (2) run the Rhino SystemInfo command and post the result here?

Hi, sure, thanks in advance for help!

Thanks for that file. I was able to reproduce that behavior here and created issue RH-52488 for the developer to look at.
Thanks for reporting!

Thanks! I’m curious about the result. Just to add: this issue doesn’t happen always, perhaps it has something to do with some specific setting or file history. At some models it works well, at others it doesn’t.


I just found out, that the dimension is actually there, it’s just very far. Here is a screenshot of the same model, zoomed out:
