Measure/dimension hardly legible...

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Just noticed measuring text while moving an object is hardly legible - could the measurement labelling be somehow adjusted?

i.e. size, font, color, style ?


cheers,

Not sure if this is what is being referred to, but occasionally I have noticed the text size does appear to be different depending if you pull from a corner to maintain the aspect ratio or from the side to change the width. The text is larger when the 'W:' is missing. (See screenshots).

Would you be able to post a screenshot please? Also what Display DPI and resolution are you using?

Apologies Sean, false alarm. I dragged the guideline not the text, which you can do when the text is selected as shown in the screenshot.

Hi, is there a solution now? I've got the same problem using only a full HD Screen with 24''. I can really hardly read the numbers. Especially on dark backgrounds like in the image of the previews post.

Hey Fion Noir,

 

Unfortunately not yet. The bug was only reported less than 2 weeks ago and although it is with development, it hasn't been resolved yet. They are currently working  hard on fixing critical stability issues for the 1.6 release.

Hate this!. 90% of my work with dark images.

And why vertical dimension has VERTICAL numbers? You really think this more comfortable for read than horizontal text?


Just compare with PS:

Seems a fixed color for the distances and a white glow (?) around each character - not sure if changeable, but certainly not easy on the eyes (if readable). The horizontal/vertical, color, size and glow should all be adjustable. But, since this has been going on (reported) since end of August... ho hum.
