In the WIP that went out yesterday, we have gotten pretty close to a feature complete state for new annotations, meaning that most if not all of the features for V6 are included.
There will surely be bugs, and we’d like to hear about them, but most if not all of the things I’ve seen go by here have been fixed.
I know of a couple of things that still need some fixing, but it would be better to report things than to assume we know about them now.
There are new objects for all of the dimensions, text and leaders.
The commands are the same as before.
There are new fields in dimension styles and new dialogs.
Text, Leaders and Dimensons all use dimension styles now.
Some fields in dimension styles only affect some annotations.
For example, the vertical alignment of text in dimensions is set in the Text section of the dialog and for leaders, it’s set in the Leader section.
There is more complete handling of tolerance settings
Zero suppression can be controlled
There are more options for appearance of leaders including vertical alignment and curve type
Blocks can be used as arrows on dimensions and leaders
Rhino files with old style annotations will be converted when you read the files.
AutoCAD read and write supports new annotations and other formats, AI and DGN will before too long.
Overrides on individual obejcts are made in the object properties dialogs and don’t have explicit check marks like they did.
When some value is overridden the field in object properties will show up in blue. To reset overrides, click on the Style dropdown and choose the option to reset.
There will be a more formal run down on this stuff coming from @Margaret before too long.
If things don’t work for you or you think we should change the way something works, this is the the time to tell us.
Thanks for your help with this.
