Hi all, I used the CHANGESPACE command today to bring a piece of mtext from model space to paper space. I had a background mask on the mtext and when it came into paper space, the height of the text box displayed right but the width stayed the same as it was in model space. I played around with column settings and also the WYSIWYG in editor settings. Nothing seemed to make difference. What am I missing? Using autocad 2014
Yes sorry, CHSPACE command. Here's a WBLOCK portion of the dwg I'm working on. The layout shows what happened when I moved the MTEXT to paper space. I left another one for you to try.
sorry to say, it's just to commit that I can reproduce that with AutoCAD 2014, with a new drawing.
All is recalculated correct (position, height, ...) but not the property "Design width".
I didn't find a solution or workaround to get that automatically done yet.
==> forward that to AutoCAD please.
Sorry, - alfred -
All your MTEXT have "dynamic columns" turned on (you don't use columns in any of the text samples in the file).
Turning off columns through properties stopped the problem.
PROPERTIES will let you fix all your existing mtext objects all at once: to fix it permanently, start MTEXT, turn off columns, type a few words then exit MTEXT gracefully. It stays off until you turn it back on again (and recreate the problem).
Ok, I found that out yesterday, but I messed around a little more and discovered that if you have 2 static columns in model space and move them to paper space, the second column dissapears. Try the attached dwg.
