Hello,

It's a bug. I encountered it back in December, I posted pictures in this (French) topic: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=3365#p26107

I forgot to report it earlier, I just did it now: https://sourceforge.net/apps/mantisbt/f ... php?id=971

There is no workaround that I know of. Even if you delete the image and import it back, as soon as you edit your sketch the dimensional constraint text overwrites the image again.

Acknowledged.

Having quickly looked at the code the image workbench, I'm not yet sure what is causing the problem but I think the textures in the datum labels are overriding each other.

I have got an updated version of the datum label code that may possibly fix this problem but its no guarantee.

Hi Marco
Luke is talking about his git repository on GitHub
see here in a web browser
https://github.com/mrlukeparry/FreeCAD_sf_master.git

do you know how to download with git?

If not you can download a zip of his code from the URL above. To do this first change to Luke's sketchDatum branch, then click the download repository as a zip file button which is labelled "zip" on the left of where the URL is shown in the web page above, (at github).

I assume you can compile FreeCAD from source? This above will get you the source code which you will have to compile, not a binary file or installer etc..

Luke has a few branches there, make sure you download the correct branch.

with the sketchDatum branch there isn't a guarantee it will work but I tidied and improved the code which may fix this behaviour. I have been busy so cannot really test it at the minute.

The bug was just fixed in the source code by wmayer.

Users of the Ubuntu PPA daily builds will see the fix in 24 hours. Windows users will have to wait for the next v0.14 unstable installer.

Thanks Werner! :)
