text font type appearance on screen

For some reason, my autocad application will not display the text type on screen correctly. This began on Friday of last week (10/19), and remains today (10/21). It is not simply one drawing file, but all drawing files that I open. When I initiate the MTEXT Editor, the correct font appears, but not in the drawing window. Any ideas how to correct this?

>> When I initiate the MTEXT Editor, the correct font appears, but not in the drawing window

And what happens instead? It might be the text-size (to small for current zoom-window), it might be that your text-object/-style is set to annotative (and the current annotation-scale is not activated for the object), ....


If nothing helps then can you create such a "not in drawing window"-text in a new drawing and upload it?
