Non-scalable "Dot" object?


#1

Hi. I need to work with “Dot” objects and one thing that I find very annoying is the fact that this kind of objects are preserving the scaling regardless the zoom level of the view-port. When I am zooming out I can’t see the shape of the objects as they are obscured by this dot elements.

It is possible to make the Dots to behave like the text objects, where the text it is scaling as the view-port zoom level changes?

Also will be great to have an option for the Dot to orient or not to the actual view of the viewport.

Yep, this is a long-standing request, it’s been in the enhancement list for around 4 years now according to this youtrack item… still listed as “Future”… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

BTW, the same needs to happen for arrowhead objects.

Note you can create a “dot-like” text entity using a background mask, the text will scale with the zoom level.

Hopefully will change sooner than later.

Yes, indeed.

You can somewhat fake it right now by creating text with a mask and setting it horizontal to view.
