Mirrored dimensions and text

Hello,

 

Using the same template Text and Dimension style all of the sudden the text is vertical and mirrored and the dimension text is mirrored under the dim line ( above the dim line in normal conditions)

What could be the problem? I did not change anything in the settings, voluntarily, I use this template for years and never had a problem with it till now.

 

Can anybody help me out? I have spend a few hours searching for a fix. see the bubbled text in the attached PDF.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

have you verified that the UCS is set to the same direction that the other drawing parts are? It looks like you have set the UCS to look from "behind" to the geometry, so new dimensions seems to be mirrored.

 

BTW: uploading a drawing creates better answers, seeing the PDF makes it visible, but what happend to your drawing exactly can't be said. So all above is just guessing. :smileywink:

oh my God, the minute you mentioned UCS it only took me a second to revert back to WORLD. I never checked that because I never changed the coordinates or view. I always work in 2D and use the same axes and directions.

Regardless of the cause it is all good now and i thank you for that,

 

have a good weekend,

Felix

 

PS

Point taken. Next time I will attached the whole dwg. Thanks again
