Incorrect behavior of the Label tool in the Draft workspace

Postby doubters » Thu Aug 22, 2019 9:29 pm

1. The label parameter "Display Mode" is not saved and, after opening the file, returns to "3D text"
2. Extra characters for Custom text on the working field (fixed in version 0.19)
3. When changing the "Display Mode" from "3D text" to "2D text", "Text Alignment" has to be changed several times to correctly position the inscription.

Which is the FreeCAD version you are testing this with? Because reporting things against the 0.18 version isn't very helpful if it's already fixed in 0.19. The best thing to do is to test it against the latest development version. For example, Roy_043 has tested a bunch of Draft and Arch functions lately.

A draft label's initial Display Mode is '3D text' according to the View properties. But the text is displayed as '2D text'.

Editing the Custom Text property of a Draft Label does not work properly if you remove text lines.

Moving a Draft Label results in the Target Point being left behind. Copying a Draft Label is not possible. It would be nice if you could snap to points on the line.

I have just discovered the Frame property. Changing this to Rectangle shows that the bounding box is indeed inaccurate (assuming the frame is drawn closely around the box). For labels created from left to right, as in the OP, the frame appears to be mirrored.

Another thing I noticed: The 'Text Size' property is in fact used as the line height.

I'll try to revisit some of the issues I have reported and add them to the bug tracker. After discussing them here first of course.
