    Default MTEXT Problem

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Good afternoon all,

    I am having, been having a problem with mtext when I use a slash and number sign. It shifts my horizontal text up. If I do a distance, the distance is correct but I'm assuming it is using distance from bottom of slash. I have TSPACETYPE set to 2 but I'm assuming it's for more than 1 line of text. Does anybody know how I can fix this problem? I want "WIRING TAG #2" to look like "WIRING TAG #1". They are both 1/16" above line but as you can see, second text shifts up. I have wiring diagrams to do and am space limited. I am having to manuall move wiring tags with "#" and "/" up. Thank you in advance! David

    The only way I know to avoid this issue is, find a font in which the symbols don't extend past the letters. If your standards force you to use a specific font, someone else may have a solve.

    Either forego the use of the # sign or switch to using "No." instead.
