    Default text in paper space appears very thick and solid

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have some drawings that the text appears very thick and solid in paper space.
    Plots fine though.
    i am still using a SHX font (architxt)
    it shows fine in model space
    only some drawings have this problem
    i have checked txtfill and such commands
    has anyone els ever had this issues?
    again, it does not effect plotting, so its only annoying, not a real problem
    thanks, Dale

    This problem is common when using TTF fonts: some text in some file appear bold but when printed they look good (and I've seen this problem discussed in many forums with no clear explenation of the reasons why this happend).
    This is the first time I hear that about SHX fonts.
    BTW, on those fonts fillmode should not have effects because it's the lineweight (defined in the drawing or with the plot style) that should determine the width of the lines that forms the letters

    Could you post your drawing or at least the portion with the text?

    Just a workaround, but turn off the LWT button at the bottom of the page.

    Default Uploaded sample

    I just uploaded a sample dwg with the text problem,
    but there is no way to make it 250 kb, which I thought i saw was the limit, so i am not sure it is uploaded. It called sampletextdwg.zip
    Its a zipped file
    thanks, dale
