I have an rvb script that checks for text (auto generated by another script) intersecting with curves (for annotations on plans) so that our CAD operators can move the text.
Because on large drawings it can be time consuming it does it in 2 stages, first it calculates bounding boxes for each text object and intersects them with the rest of the drawing, and if an intersection is found it then explodes a copy of the text object to the outlines of the text and re-evaluates those intersections before alerting the operator of an intersection.
In Rhino 6 the bounding box for text seems to be much bigger than the text object, whereas in Rhino 5 it was very close to the extents of the text. I have tested the boundingbox command and that produces the same result, so its not part of the script that is causing the issue. Is there any reason that the bounding box for text objects only is now so much bigger?
UPDATE: this seems to be only where the text isn’t aligned with the world coordinate system (including, for example, text at a 45deg angle in world top when re-setting the cplane so that cplane x is in line with the bottom of the text object). When aligned to any world aligned cplane the bounding box works as it did in Rhino 5.
