    Is the system variable MIRRTEXT set to "1"?

    I asked if you had changed the system variable for mirrored text (MIRRTEXT) to a value of "1". It's is a simple question. You have the following choices of answers: Yes / No / I don't know what a system variable is.

    Try resetting it to one and see if it makes a difference.

    For text in blocks to stay the right way round after mirroring (with MIRRTEXT set to 0), the text HAS to be an attribute. It must not be ordinary text.
