Multi-line dimension


#1

If I place a dimension, then double click to edit it, inserting a carriage return then another line of text, the properties window does not seem to show the carriage return in the edit window. Also, I can’t seem to find a way to make the preview window (don’t know what the real name is, but I labelled it in the image) any larger to fit more than one line at once (I see I can scroll it, but it would be nice to be able to just resize).

Also, is there a way to change or override the justification for dimensions? Right now it seems to be centered, while the text for the current dim style is left justified.

Thanks,
Sam

Hi Sam - thanks, I see that. https://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-39568

So far I don’t see a way to justify dimension text. Would it be OK to follow the annotation style, do you think? I’m not sure that is the right thing for dims…

Yeah, I think my original post was rather carelessly framed. I don’t think it necessarily needs to follow the annotation style justification, and I like that it defaults to center, but I would enjoy the ability to override the default justification.

Thanks,
Sam

If we have the ability to change the justification, we need a field in the style for it to use. That would mean adding another field unless we use the one for text.

I reopened that bug in testing and I’m working on it now, so False Alarm
