Display Priority

How do get the text to print on top of the linework? I have set the layer’s “Display Priority” with zero effect. I do not want to use white out, because it leaves a black box on top of the referenced pdf.

As far as I know it should always print on top of linework. May be a bug, does it show up when you export the sheet as a PDF or only in plan view?

I have the same issue. yes, it is under the cad line after you print to .pdf.

It is on the pdf from the “Print Plan Set”.

Terramodel would let you use the text as a clipping box, TBC does not.

Unfortunate. I don’t have any other ideas. Alan may know some wizardry that will fix it though :grinning:

I have not done this type of work before. Maybe the use of the Create Dynaviews??? That should past on top of all. Maybe. Hope that’s a fix.

I remember running into this a while back. Any chance they fixed this in 2024.

That’s a good one Elijah!

Trimble does not have a great track record for fixing annoying little problems like this.

haha. one can hope. they said they fixed hundreds of bugs.

And, when they fix the bugs they introduce them as new “features” :rofl:


Are you using a True Type Fonts? @Thomas_Tomsu

Try switching to any stroked font and it should resolve itself on top of the line work,
TBC has quirks with the TT Fonts

TBC has a standard hard coded priority order that is independent of the priority settings

Images / georeferenced PDF etc are always in background

Fills and hatch patterns are next

Linework is next

Text is always at the front

That fixed it Gordon. I changed the font from arial to simplex and it now prints in the correct order. I now have to figure out what is true type and what is stroke.
