Dimstyles for text. Long story short, our Dimstyle lists of R5 files are now 2 times longer due to multiple text sizes and it’ll get even longer when scripts are used to create text tags, annotations etc. Scrolling through Dimstyle list will become a nightmare.
Is Textstyle solution still on the table? Also, Rhino script text methods are missing Dimstyle parameters. How’s that gonna work?
2… Grouped texts. Now I have to Double click + click to edit a text object. That’s a step back from R5 in my estimation, where you could simply double click. Also, the text edit pop-up is noticeably slower.
Removing control over the tab size. In V5 I can change the tabs to suit whether I’m on my laptop or my 28" 4K monitor. In V6 they are just too small and the only way to change this is to scale up the display so that my entire Windows experience is affected. I’m a squeaky wheel on this subject hoping to get some grease, because I know when the rest of the workforce here gets upgraded to V6 (120+ users) there is going to be a lot of disgruntled people straining their eyes to see these micro tabs. I know the goal was to have all tabs the same size, but this new method of removing control of the tab size didn’t achieve that.
Thanks Steve. Sorry to be so annoying about this, but I feel this is important. I see more and more of our people wearing reading glasses as they get older (myself included) so I know tiny tabs will be a major concern when we roll out V6.
I made 16 people in our engineering department to switch from AutoCAD to 100% Rhino this year.
We use Rhino to model buildings around pointclouds and draw Shop Drawings with Elevations, 3D views, Details etc. Every Layout page has symbols that are grouped texts, curves and hatches. 10-50 Layout pages per set. And they look like this:
Imagine double click + click’ing in each symbol to edit the text instead of double clicking. Add slowness of the edit window opening and you’re back “working in AutoCAD” - slow and cumbersome. This alone might stop us from upgrading to R6.
The option to have a basic edit pop-up and simple double click into grouped text to edit would be nice.
@DanBayn I am looking at the toolbar tab sizing and they appear to be the same size as the panel tabs (layer, properties,…). Your image shows the toolbar tabs as smaller than the panel tabs. Are you still seeing this?
Obviously these tabs are going to display differently on different screens. In V5, I set the tab size differently on my laptop then I do on my desktop monitor. I need to make them bigger on the laptop because of the smaller screen size, but still at 1980x1080. In V6 we are not going to have that option and that concerns me.
I’m going to put V6 on my laptop right now and see how it looks.
I’m a little surprised, but it’s not too bad on the laptop. The small tabs seem proportional to the rest of the display if I use medium size icons. On my desktop I’m running 3840x2160 at a scale factor of 150% and they’re proportionally too small.
I wonder if there needs to be a “hack” like we have in V5 for large UHD monitors? Or perhaps have a tab size tied to the icon size. If you select large icons you get scaled up tabs too.
You’re right, I for some reason thought it did.
I was thinking of workarounds/rigs for RCP details for the past days and DrawOrder for surfaces would have solved it in many cases. Is it even possible then?
Okay, thanks. Is there a possibility of getting a TabWidthPadding option too? I notice that when I increase the height, the images become truncated. The images appear to remain static so the ability to tweak the width would be useful.
