Dimensions. Fill Color. Does not work properly.

TurboCAD Platinum 2017
Dimensions - Dimensions Property - Fill Color.

The Fill Color option does not work properly anymore.

1. It adds an unnecessary black frame around text data, which is too big and overlaps interior dimension line.
2. It overwrites dimension's properties in drawings which were made in previous versions - adds unnecessary black frame around text.
3. The Leader Dimension Tool has lost the "Fill Color" option completely.

Please fix this problem ASAP and make it as it used to be. I think it is linked to badly updated "multi text" tool.

This bug makes this version of software useless for those who works with it on an everyday basis as professional drafts-person.

Thanks, Yuriy Bal

All I can suggest is to contact IMSI support page asking them when it will be fixed,   This thread from June Black Border appears to be a similar issue, and shows they know about the problem but I haven't seen any comment about it since then.

Although IMSI staff visit the forum they may not read every thread.

Thank you, Andy.
I will contact TurboCad support about it.
I've seen this thread from June. This is the same problem.
I did not test free trial version properly; bought it and can't use it. Now, I am back to the previous version.
From my experience, I've been using TurboCAD from v4, IMSI can fix it right away with the next patch or it can take a year for them. It happened in the past with improved "stretch tool".
TurboCAD is a good product. I use it every day. The only thing to watch out is when developers start "improving" drafting tools. They need to do more testing after.

In addition, the "improved Multi Text” does not work properly as well.
See attached picture with the screenshot: “after and before”.

Customer service is confirming that the fix is available in the build 58.5.
Let's wait for this patch and see how it will work.
Or maybe this build is available to someone on the forum and someone could check it for us?

The new software update came out.
A portion of this problem has not been fixed.
The "background fill color" to the "leader dimension" still does not work.
The ticket is still open.
Let's wait for another update, hope not for the next paid version.
