Problem with Text alignement in Rhino MAC

rhino

#1

Hei there,

I am using Rhino Mac since a while now and I have always this problem with text alignement.

OK so in fact after having saved and well closed a file. Then I re opened the same file and the problem is that some of my text have changed their alignement ??? Is this a normal bug ? Am I doing something wrong ?

What is so surprising is that the alignement doesn’t change after a closing.

You can see this in the image below : The rectangle in purple is the bounding box of the text.

It’s like the text slips alone…

And the problem is with all settings of alignement !!!

Thanks for answering !

Best regards

Lawrence

@dan, sounds like the text, which is top-justified, thus insertion point at the top, is somehow losing that info. The insertion point stays the same, but the text thinks it’s bottom justified, so it moves up. @Lawrence_Breitling - hey Lawrence, can you turn on points for the texts that have moved and see where they are? I bet the insertion point has not moved, but the text has.

I agree. That’s what it looks like to me too. I think I recall similar reports in the past, but I can’t dredge up anything useful searching our list of bugs.

I’ve been trying to repeat this behavior, but I can’t seem to. @Lawrence_Breitling I am also curious what is happening with the insertion point. What happens when you run PointsOn on the text?

This may be a situation where we need the 3dm file to diagnose the bug.

There Sir,

Sorry for answering late but I was kind of busy…

Here you’ll find the 3DM file which I have the Text alignement Bug.

I draw like a big Arrow to show you where is the bug in case you don t have the right view.

I just noticed that if I copy the text « A3 » to the right the bug disappear, so strange.

This one of my professional work so I trust you not to spread up this project everywhere.

Thank you very much for your help !

Best Regards !

Lawrence

Dear Sir,

I hope you are well.

Do you have any news of my bug problem ?

Do you know when the Layout function will be available on Rhino Mac ? Will it be in 4.2 version ?

Thank you very much for your answers.

Best Regards,

Lawrence Breitling


(Dan Belcher) #11

I’m sorry to report we have not yet made progress on the bug you reported. We hope to fix this bug in the 5.2 update, which we are also planning to include Layout features. I wish I could give you a timeline for the release of 5.2, but I cannot.


(Dan Belcher) #12

This issue should be fixed in the next RhinoWIP update (coming soon). Thank you again for your patience and for reporting this issue.


#13

Thank you very very much

Do you know when the new WIP will be released ?

Really pleased that you answer me !

Lawrence


(Dan Belcher) #14

Hi Lawrence-

Do you know when the new WIP will be released ?

It should be very soon. We have one more bug to fix (related to the Layout feature) that we would like to fix before we publish an update to the RhinoWIP.


Layouts in the Mac release

Can’t wait! Thanks guys for making this real.


#16

WHOUUWHOUUU,

today seems to be the great day !!!

Thank you very much for adding this great new feature to Mac.

Still need to understand well how it works !

Best regards and thank you for all the work !!!


#17

By the way is it possible to add some layers in the drawing window and then appears in the layout menu ?

Like annotation or dimensions ?

Thanks


#18

Dear Daniel hope you are well

Thank to everyone for the layout update for Rhino Mac.

Do you remember the text alignment bug that I report about 6th month ago ?

I still have it even with the last WIP version of Rhino!

Here is 3 printscreen showing that,

first in the drawing mode —> all clear well aligned
second in the Layout mode —> all clear well aligned
third one in pdf —> not-aligned the text V2 moved !!!

and it does it with other letters and text.

Thanks for answering !

Best regards !

Lawrence


#19

same problem here.


(Dan Belcher) #20

Hi Lawrence-

Again, I apologize for the delayed reply.

Yes, I do remember it well (MR-2405)…thank you again for your help reproducing it.

Very frustrating…but hopefully, with your help again, we can fix it.

Let me make sure I understand…

You are only seeing this when printing to PDF. Is that correct?

Again, it would be a tremendous time-saver for us if you would be willing to share the 3dm file contained in the screenshots above. It will (hopefully) allow us to reproduce exactly what you are seeing and fix the problem. Can you please attach it here or send it directly to me (dan@mcneel.com)?

Thanks again,
-Dan

PS: Tracking this bug in MR-2724.
