Fix the 2013 Text Box

Status: New Idea
by Contributor MDS-MQ on ‎01-08-2013 09:40 AM

Since upgrading to 2013 we have had an issue of the text box removing dimension lines. This need to be fixed!


If Autodesk is going to supply a white out feature like AutoCAD has then it need to do the following:

1. Remove all geometry behind the text box not just the dimension lines.

2. Have a switch to control weather you can see what is behind the text box or note. (Most cases I want to see through the text box)

3. Text box should automatically resize based on what text is in it.


I have been told this new text box issue is a new feature in Inventor. I sure wish it where a useful feature and not just another hope for use trained animals to have to jump through.
