fahim108 Posted May 21, 2010 Share Posted May 21, 2010 Lets consider you are using a fancy font to display this: ...but instead you get this: This is a common issue in AutoCAD, you may even call it a bug; but you can correct it by resetting the following to their default values: z-value of the text to 0, text oblique angle to 0, text width factor to 1. But then there are cases where the above solution may not work... so your best guess is to copy and paste everything to a new drawing. The problem basically arises when you try to 3D-orbit (and/or Shademode) your drawing. You may not be aware of this but when you orbit the drawing you mess-up its font smoothing. Even switching back to the default "Top" view (with the 2D-Shademode) doesn't get rid of the ugly wrecked texts. However, there is a way to avoid this problem beforehand: When you begin a new drawing, always save a view (as shown, without the layer snapshot). In-case you later accidentally or deliberately orbit the drawing, this way, you can always revert back to this view and retain the smoothness of your font. Lets begin with a new drawing and save the current view: Assuming this is a part of our drawing: Lets orbit it, and see what happens: The text is already messed up: Use the Plan command to switch back to the Top View. Note, it doesn't help: Use the 3D Navigation Bar to revert back to the earlier saved view: Tada!!!! A small effort put in the beginning always helps you in the long run...
