WTF is up with 2021 Drawing Label

Recommended Posts

The old drawing label is still available to be added to your workspace. In the workspace Editor look in the Legacy section of the tools and add it to your workspace.


Just because you were not complaining about the old version does not mean that no one else what. There has been a long and persistent request for the back referencing option that was added to the new drawing label.

Hi @MartinFahrer,


As Pat mentioned, there have been requests to add more functionality and more configurations to Drawing Labels and other auto-coordination marker objects.  These objects are actually far more customizable that the previous versions and that are also now stylable.  You are right that you cannot simply select a Drawing Label object and change its text sizes via parameters, but you can create a few styles setup just how you like them and easily manage them throughout your file.  And, when creating viewports, you can choose which Drawing Label style to place in the viewport.  The improvements made to these objects should result in a much smoother workflow once you get acclimated with them.
