TEXT POSITION FOR ED COMMAND

Hi everybody,
I'm using the ED command in AutoCAD 2012. I have my texts verticals, but I want to edit them in horizontal position, however when I active the command and I select the text, the edit option appears in vertical position. What can I do to control this option? Is there some variable to control this option?
Thank you for your help.

You're using a font with @ infront of the font name right?

If you do , DON'T.

Hi, the font is ROMANS. However, It only happen in a specific machine, because I try in any other PC but doesn't happen that.

What is your MTEXTFIXED system variable set at? Sounds like it might be set on 0 or 1. Try changing it to 2 and see if the text editor works the way you want it to.

 

The MTEXTFIXED system variable sets the display size and orientation of multiline text in a specified text editor.

Type:Integer
Saved in:Registry
Initial value:2

If MTEXTED is set to “Internal,” multiline text is displayed in the In-Place Text Editor, and the setting of MTEXTFIXED has the following results:

0 or 1

Displays the In-Place Text Editor and the text within it at the size, position, and rotation of the multiline text object in the drawing.

2

 

 

Displays the In-Place Text Editor and the text within it at the size, position, and rotation of the multiline text object in the drawing.

 Text that would otherwise be difficult to read (if it is very small, very large, or is rotated) is displayed at a legible size and is oriented horizontally so that you can easily read and edit it.
