Text reformats when imported as symbol

Hi,

I'm having a problem with text reformatting when importing dwf symbols that were originally created in .dwg as blocks.

Here's my process:
-I create a block library in .dwg. The text consists of MText and Attribute fields.
-When I use these blocks in CAD, I find I have no problems.
-When I publish my blocks to .dwf and import into the Symbols Catalog, some text reformats to either larger or smaller font size. This happens to both the MText and Attribute fields and in no particular pattern.

I don't understand why the reformatting happens to some blocks and not to others as all the blocks were created from the same template.

I'll attach the original .dwg I created the blocks in and the .dwf I used to import.

Thanks for the help!

Hi I am also having this problem. My dwf looks fine in ADR but when imported as a catalogue the text in each symbol is huge. This hasn't happened to all symbols just a few. The 'bad' symbols are just extended versions of the 'good' symbols.



Just wondering if there is an answer.



Thanks.
