Disappearing Dimensions

Hi, I'm running TurboCad 2017 ver 24, 64 bit on Windows 7.

In model space, Wire Frame I have dimensions on my drawing.  When I switch to Draft Rendering or Suppress Hidden Lines, the dimensions disappear.  When I go back to Wire Frame, the dimensions re-appear.

I searched for this problem and saw disappearing dimensions, but not pertaining to my problem.

This is how it should work, if you want to see it you need to open the render property ( rigth click on the tea cup) and check "Non Rendable" button, but then you will also see a lot of lines that you maybe dont want to see in a rendermode.

If you create a view in M Space, then switch to P space and insert a viewport and use that view there, you can Dimension it in P Space


I forgot to mention, if you have Platinum, you can make draft in Draft Palette and insert that in P Space, set the draft to Hidden line and dimmension.

Try checking the Foreground Wireframe option, Im assuming that your using lightworks. If its unchecked then no non renderable will appear.

TCW V21, 2015-2019 PP, Animation Lab V5.2 & Redsdk enabled, LightWorks rendering mostly.
