  1. I'm using a couple of custom linetypes which I created and one is reading logically (ELEC) but when I changed to another linetype (GAS) the text reads as it follows the direction of the polyline. I didn't expect it to read logically but it looks better on the drawing. I created both linetypes and followed similar formatting (see below) so I've no idea why this is happening. Does anyone know how to achieve this purposely so all read logically? *ELECTRIC,Electric Cables -- ELEC ---- ELEC ---- ELEC -- A,0.5,-0.3,["ELEC",Text - Arial,s=0.1,r=0,x=-0.175,y=-0.05],-0.3 *GAS,Gas Pipes -- GAS ---- GAS ---- GAS -- A,0.5,-0.3,["GAS",Text - Arial,s=0.1,r=0,x=-0.15,y=-0.05],-0.3
  2. I am having an issue with the "upright" script in my ltype descriptions. Apparently it works the way it is supposed to and not the way I want it to. The upright is set to 0 which orients the text in linetypes to be shown as "upright" to the model space. In most design cases; not an issue, but I am designing construction plans along a roadway and as such, north is not always "upright" to my viewport. Is there a script (ie ...,u=v],... or ...,u=vp],...) that will orient my text based on the line displayed in the viewport? Thanks
