This Months Tips & Tricks Focus Is On:

Disappearing text & dimensions

I sometimes find that the text or dimensions I've placed into my drawing 'disappear' behind other objects. Is there a simple way to bring them back on top?

The command "TEXTTOFRONT" will achieve this for you. Once entered it will prompt you to select either - Text / Dimensions / Both. Simply choose the upper case letter of your choice or press enter to accept the default choice in the angle brackets.

This functionality can also be achieved by using the QSELECT function & selecting M Text under the "object type" drop down & "OK". Now all of the M Text is placed into a selection set allowing you to use DRAWORDER functionality to bring them to the front.
