Hello everyone, quick question about the rendering of text in sketches for dimensions, notes, etc.


I frequently run into a situation when editing a sketch where it appears that the screen is being rendered with low quality. Perhaps the anti-aliasing is just not kicking in for some reason, although I think only the dimension text and arrows are affected. Has anyone else seen this, and if so, is there a way prevent it, or at least force a re-draw?

Here is an example: aliased text when editing a sketch:

But text appears fine when either selecting the sketch in the feature manager, or when a dimension is selected for editing.


In the case where the text is jagged during a sketch edit, I can fix it by selecting a sketch entity, and doing ctrl+R once or twice to force a redraw. But as soon as I move the cursor, the text is jagged again.

Thanks everyone!
