Draft Text: Text not aligned with working plane

Postby Roy_043 » Wed May 12, 2021 2:02 pm

The Draft Text command does not fully respect the current working plane.

Test:
  1. Open the attached file.
  2. Align the Draft workingplane (Draft_SelectPlane) with the face of the box marked with the circle.
  3. Start the Draft_Text command.
  4. Enter 0,0,0 in the local coordinate system.
  5. Result: The coordinates in the LCS are used but the text is aligned with the XY plane of the GCS. See 'Test' text in the image.
If you do the same with the Draft_ShapeString command you will see that coordinates can only be entered in the GCS, but the alignment of the XY plane of the LCS is used. See 'Default' text in the image.

Also compare the Draft_Dimension command which does fully respect the working plane.
