grid bubble

Question

Besides the fact that its a clunky tool, in 2019 a grid bubble on a design layer the dimension text size will not change no matter what size you set it to.

Allan:

 

Thanks for the feedback. In the OIP, while the item text works, unfortunately the Dimension size will not change no matter what you set it to. Its a bug as far as I can tell.

I cannot reproduce this - when I change the Dim Text Size, my dimension text will change accordingly.

What version/service pack of Vectorworks are you using?

2019 SP 2 (see profile)

 

Every project, every file with this software has some kind of bug, glitch. This has been going on for years and its getting old. Why doesn't it just work?

Your signature still states "2015 designer w/ rendwks" which is why I asked.

 

Could you please attach a file where you're experiencing this issue?

Hello @jnr,

 

Check if you have a Styled Dimension with a Text Style specified on it:


We use several dim standards. One specific for dimensions used in the grid bubble. Another for the general dimensions.

Both of them with a different text style for more control.

 

You can also:

1. Not text style: nor for the dim standard, nor for the grid bubble (this will work as you expect).

2. Not text style for the dim standards, with text style at the Grid Bubble.

 

Hope this helps,

Rubén

that's odd about the profile. What I have under profile/about me is:

 

iMac Pro 2017  3 ghz 10-core Xeon W

32gb 2666mhz DDR4 RAM

AMD Radeon Pro Vega 64 16GB graphics card

 + 27" apple display

10.14.2 Mojave

Designer 2019 SP2

 

Turns out the grid bubble in the file has to be corrupted. works as advertised with no text style in a test file. Again, every project every file I work on gets corrupted, slows down, does not function as advertised, the item at hand varies. one file it's the space tool, another doors and windows, this one grid bubbles, another random vaporization/crash, another walls that don't join properly. Bottom line is 2019 is a disaster of quality control and stability.
