Mark Text Fixed (Unless Otherwise Requested)

Question

The text in the section marker tool and the mark itself are right now treated as two sperate movable entities which drive me nuts.  To adjust the marker - you have to move the text first (because it is on top) - then select the line - select the control point and then snap that to the moved text.  Essentially increasing the amount of work by 100% to modify section marker. 

 

Whoever wants the text not in the marker?  I tried to think of a time or instance where I would want the 3/A-201 text in some other place other than inside the mark.  The only thing I could think of if it was too big to fit.  

 

So - if this is really a feature that people need - maybe have a "Fixed Text" check both that will make the text and the mark move together.

Good idea, I think the entire Text aspect of the programme needs some tweaking.

Someone suggested that VW offer a bounty for unnecessary clicks. This one should be on that list!

I agree completely. It should be fixed but there is a workaround in the mean time - use the Reshape tool instead of the Selection tool when editing section lines.
