Issue with Text-Paragagraph-Restack on TP16

Postby plesseym » Sat Apr 08, 2017 5:47 am

I found what looks like a bug when using TP on Bricscad 17.2.03.

Steps to Reproduce problem
1.Create a DTEXT and edit it.
2. Insert a Field for example drawing filename.
3. Copy the dtext 2 or three times.
4. Use the Text - paragraph - restack command in TP and follow the prompt to restack the text.
5. I kept "New text height" as Unchanged , selected the first dtext as Base string.
6. I used interline scale factor 5 and then selected the other 3 dtext entities.
7. Restack worked and placed them correctly.

Error : The field in the DTEXT got converted to plain text when it should have remained as a field.

I'm sorry but we are not improving TEXT tools any longer. Actually TEXT specific tools are subject to be discontinued soon. In the beginning the MTEXT object had some limitations but now it (in our opinion) makes the TEXT object completely obsolete.

If you had created an MTEXT object you would not only have automatically restacking on size change, but the embedded field would not be subject to manipulation by old tools that are not field aware.
