thats because anti-aliasing is disabled for true type font. Use the dview command as explain in the previous post. If still doesn't fix the problem, try re-enter the object z position (to 0) using properties palette.

The Items that I have that are bold are multileaders. I can copy one that is not bold, and it will sometimes become bold. create a new one, and it is sometimes bold. The dview did not promt for a target, it prompted for a point. If I put in 0,0,0 then it asks for the other end of the selection window, not camera. (I am running Civil 3d 2014 but have had this problem in previous versions

Dan & Lynn,

 

Thanks for the helpful information. When testing all of the prescribed methods above, I still am recieving bold text on some entities while using the Arial Narrow truetype font.

 

Rave mentioned something about anti-aliasing being turned off for truetype fonts. Seeing as how Dan's method above is not a silver bullet solution, is a resolution or some other kind of provision currently in the works with the dev team? For as long as I can remember, this has always been an issue on the Plant product.

 

Thanks,

Craig

Hi Craig,

 

This is actually an AutoCAD issue rather than a specific Plant issue.

 

At the moment there is no complete solution for this, however our developers are aware of the behavior and are currently evaluating it for fixing.

 

Thanks,
Dan

Dan,

 

I just remembered another piece of information that may or may not prove useful...

 

If a P&ID drawing that contains annotations with bold text is exported to regular AutoCAD (via right-click "Export to AutoCAD..." within the Project Manager), the bold text goes away on the exported dwg, but remains on the P&ID dwg. That's why I mentioned that it seems to be a Plant-specific issue.

 

I'd be happy to send an expample if you'd like; just let me know.

 

Thanks,

Craig

Rave,

 

I exploded a bold annotation and the bold text did go away, and the text looked normal again. I'm not sure what the implications are, but I'm guessing that it has something to do with the P&ID blocks themselves. Is that what you're trying to figure out?

 

Thanks,

Craig

In my case, the actual attribute is flipped. So it still appears bold after exploded. Seems like a separate issue.
