Dtext and dims text problem

Recommended Posts

Bucky3d

I am having a problem with my Dtext display, it won't display my figures or text using the Dims Cmd as well as the Dtext. If I try to modify the text, if show the correct value, but shows empty boxes on the screen and printout. This only on a couple of drawings. What did I do wrong? Ty

Is it possible that you have QTEXT turned on in those couple of drawings?

 

How pre-2000 AutoCAD are you and what OS are you running? Just curious.

Not entirely sure what this was about but if it was in regards to my second question I asked because while I don't have every version of AutoCAD still running on my computer I do have a number of reference books. And it always helps to know what the exact version of AutoCAD a person is running (especially when talking "features"). It is also common knowledge that running older versions of AutoCAD on newer OS's can be problematic. Does that answer your question?

I believe he was referring to your signature. He must not have understood the music reference. I remember qtext coming in handy on a low-end 386 with a math co-processor.
