    Question Mtext fractions

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Does anyone know if there is a system variable to keep a stacked fraction with the leading number?
    We open the same drawing on different computers at work and on one computer the number will be 21/2 but on the next computer that opens the same dwg the 1/2 will have been bumped down to the the following line. I don't know if this is a problem with the autostack properties, although I can't find anything about that, or if its a problem with the tabs.
    I'm completely at a loss and its becoming a problem because if one person opens a project to plot it and it looks fine but the next person opens it and every mtext in the dwg is wrong it becomes very time consuming to fix.
    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Does the computer where it appears different have the font installed that the fraction is in?

    Is this a top secret font that cannot be posted? If not, could you please post?

    We have a simplex style that uses simplex as the font that the whole department uses.
