News about dimensions

Nov 21, 2012 at 10:59 AM

I have begun the work on dimensions, it seemed that many people were very eager to see this implemented. At the moment I have added the possibility to read and write aligned dimensions, more will come, but the way the text for the dimension value is positioned is very limited (only over the dimension line and always in between the limits).

The main problem with this is that AutoCAD can work with two kinds of fonts ttf and shx. I am thinking on limiting the use only with ttf fonts, this way I could take measurements of the strings to be able to position the dimension text in different ways.

A little feedback will be welcome; your participation in the forums is the only way to keep this project alive.

Really Good work.

As I posted, Please include some more dimension variables (DIMCLRD, DIMCLRE, DIMCLRT and DIMDLI ) to add the great look if you open the drawing which is more important.
