I had a crash too when trying ‘SelDimStyle’, haven’t managed to repeat it yet. (6.0.17010.13211, 10-Jan-17)
I like the way the grips are on, with the selected dimension and leader and they can be adjusted cleanly without picking up it’s neighbours, also some nice new text edit features. Here are a few items from a test run on the new dims:
Selected dimension shows a leader button icon in the propeties panel.
Propert overrides is missing from properties panel - this was really useful when visually obvious in the V5 dimension properties.
Where is the dimstyle edit access from properties disappeared to?
Opening a V5 file with several different dimstyles in modelspace - V6 sets all the dimstlye scales to 1, if a Dimstyle is changed to the correct scale all the non-dimension text balloons in size accordingly (this makes V6 unusable for existing 2D files, with dims and text in modelspace, at the moment)
SelDimStyle not working (caused a crash at some point).
Can’t find a reference to Draw Forward in the help file - what does it do? As it is checked by default, what is it doing to my file?
I miss the simple edit field on double-click for text and dimension text for quick rewording or spelling - I think, probably get used to the new one fairly quickly.
Double-click on a dimension to edit it’s text not working.
Leader is nice with text placement options - underline creates large space between text and the underscore - maybe something to do with modelspace scale.
Changing current dimstyle in Document Properties not working.
When adjusting the wrap feature on a text field, the changes are not in sync during the change, see image, text actually disappears during the adjustment and stays that way after. Attached the text in question - adjust the wrap in one click to see the problem.
Leader Test.3dm (81.4 KB)
Dimension property panel needs a secondary scroll bar to catch some of the options in the panel - the current one is set to the text box, but not the panel (looks like it flashes up momentarily and disappears)
Text size display to default 3 decimal places and Modelspace scale to 4 in the edit panel seems a bit of an overkill for general drafting work.
Wish- Diameter dimension could be mistaken for a radius on the shop floor as it just has the one arrow, especially when inside the circle (same as V5)
Have we lost the ability to have the radius and diameter text horizontally placed.
In V5, I normally use blank leader arrows with separate text to end up with fine leaders lines on drawings - I’d love to use the leaders as they are designed, any chance of allocating a print width to leader and dim lines which is different to text print width (another wish).
