Autocad 2012: All Text Gone

510 Views, 2 Replies

Please pardon me if this is a simple question. I am a very proficient Revit person supporting two users on Revit and now Autocad, which I know very little about.


I created a basic floor plan with text room names and basic dimensions. I've printed it before and opened and closed it before. Now when I open the file, for some reason all of my text is missing. There was no error message. All text of any kind is gone from my file. I've checked all of my layers, check my dimstyles and checked my text styles and I can't find the problem.


This same issue is also happening to my co-worker. All of our files are on a shared drive. I've tried moving the files from the share drive to my desk top as well.


Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Is the text annotation text and is the light bulb at the bottom right of your screen turned off?


If so, turn the light bulb on and your text should reappear.

No dice. I tried turning hardware acceleration OFF because that can cause issues with Revit and made sure annotation visibility was checked. The text worked for awhile a few weeks ago and suddenly it all went away.
