Text height doesn’t remember last input

Does this bother anyone else besides me? It defaults back to 1.000”.thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,
I am assuming this is on Rhino 6…
In RH6, text is created based on your default annotation style. You can modify this in your template.

Okay Wim , got it. Yes it is V6. Thanks

Hello everyone,

Yes it bothers me too. And especially when I need to enter the same text over and over again. The first time I enter the text, obviously I have to write it in the text dialog box. But when I need to do it again, I run the text command and the text is not there and all the other settings are set to their defaults (for example, if I had written “hello” in Helvetica with bold setting, the next time I run the text command everything is forgotten (no “hello”, no Helvetica and no bold setting)).

In Rhino 5, it remembers the last input till the restart of the program. I really need this.

Does this have a fix or a workaround (except copy-pasting the frequently used text of course)?

Hi - In Rhino 6 and later, the workflow involves defining the text style and setting a style as default.

As for inserting instances of exactly the same text, you can easily create a macro and assign that to a button or key combination:

_-Text “Your string here”

Thank you, Wim.


Hi Erdem - note that in Service Release 6.21, Rhino will again remember the previous text string.

That’s great news!! Thanks. Will it also remember other attributes like the font, size and italic, bold, underlined settings?

Hi - it looks like all attributes but height are remembered.
I put it on the list for the developer to take a look: RH-55854.


RH-55689 is fixed in the latest Service Release Candidate
