Field Text Showing Font in preview?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am trying to get a field to link two texts, so that when the first is edited, the second updates to the same, similar to the =CELL function in excel.

 

I can get this to work when using standard text, however when I try to do this with text that is bold and Arial Narrow, the second text displays lots of additional information. I have attached a screen grab of the field window to show what I mean.

 

How can I avoid this?

 

I am working on AutoCAD LT 2016.

Try setting a new Text Style which is Arial Narrow and Bold, and then using this textstyle in the fields.

 

The extra text is because you are changing the font in the textstyle into Arial Narrow and Bold.
