This is just a little annoyance that I thought I'd get off my chest. Maybe I'm not aware of an easier way to make dimension text filled with background color so it shows up clearer in a busy area of a drawing.
I find it annoying to right click, properties, text, and check fill text with background color (4 clicks to accomplish one task) of a dimension. Maybe there's a way to get a quick button on the ribbon bar?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You could create a dim style with that turned on. It's easy to change the dimension style on command bar or whatever it's called.
That's a good idea, can you give me a quick guide to create a dimension style? I have a couple loaded in my settings, but never done one myself..............
EDIT: I did a search and fingered it out. Thanks for the AWESOME suggestion to save me steps!
Here's a video. I'm not sure how to change the background color but I'm sure you know.
Edit: I messed up at the end but you should get the idea.
We set our templates with that turned on. For a while. We found that in most cases it's not desirable so we turned it off again and just use a specific style when it's wanted.
