Complex linetypes

When I assign a complex linetype containing text to an entity it doesn't always appear as intended
This linetype should appear as shown in the description,
*FENCE,Fenceline x----x----x----x----x----
instead it appears as
sometimes simply moving the line will correct the problem temporarily sometimes not.
The text type I'm useing is simplex.shx
Any suggestions?

I've defined several complex linetypes that use a text entity, such as "G"
for a gas line. The text style is a unique one I defined just for this
purpose called "Linetypes", and uses simplex with a height of zero and an
obliquing angle of zero. Sometimes the text in my linetypes is displayed
upright, but other times it is slanted, as if the obliquing angle is being
ignored. This happens no matter what my current text style is set to. Is
this a bug in 14 and 2000i? Thanks.

you need to adjust your "y" value until the letter is in the position you need.
