Now double clicking on text will no longer bring up text edit pop-up in R6. It will in R5.
How can I revert R6 behavior back to R5 or similar. R6 is literally making our current symbols workflow a nightmare. Can a new workflow be suggested when I don’t have to Ctrl + Shift click -> select text in the selection menu -> edit text properties to edit a simple text object over a whiteout hatch?
Double click worked just fine. What happened to it?
So, if you group 2 texts together and double click one of them - R6 won’t know which text you’re clicking and will prompt you to select which one you want to edit. R5 would not require a third click in this case.
Also, the overlapping object doesn’t necessarily need to be a hatch. It won’t go into text edit mode if you’re clicking on a grouped curve too.
Yes, one line and one text grouped. It doesn’t work like R5 if you’re clicking on the text that directly overlaps the line or any other object for that matter (a hatch or a part of a leader). It wouldn’t activate text edit in that case at all. It would in R5.
Thanks. Yes, when selecting right at the overlap, it doesn’t work in Rhino 6 like it did in RH 5 and that was fixed in RH-51703. For the grouped text, it doesn’t matter where you pick. In fact, in Rhino 5, when 2 text objects in a group overlap, it seems that Rhino decides to always pick the object that was last selected. Is that how you feel it should be?
2 texts in a group overlapping each other:
We don’t have any overlapping texts in a group or not. So, it’s never an issue to us, hence we don’t care how it behaves. Why would anyone overlap texts anyway, how’d one read it?
2 texts in a group NOT overlapping:
R5 would pop-up Text Edit on double click of either text for the text that’s being clicked on.
R6 would prompt you to select which text to edit on double click regardless of which text you’re clicking. Intended behavior would be the R5 behavior. I don’t have to tell R6 which text to edit by clicking third time at the same text.
I don’t know why I have to “prove” the importance of those extra clicks, but here it is. The amount of detail markers we have to click to edit page and detail number can already be overwhelming without extra clickage.
This seems to be the most overused, non-helpful statement in all of this message board. If it has been posted as a R5 regression issue, why then does it get “fixed” in R7 WIP and completely skipped over for R6?
Double click on either will only prompt to select which text to edit in R6 (extra click that doesn’t need to be there, that wasn’t there in R5 or R4). Like there’s no check on what you’re clicking the first two times.
