I am having a problem with ATTEXT giving me inconsistemt results. This is in an application that has been running for years at dozens of sites, but one new customer is having a problem with it. I can't figure out what is different.
They're reporting it in Acad 2011 but I can reproduce it here in Acad 2008 with one of their dwg files.
I am using this command in an AutoLisp routine but I can reproduce the problem sometimes pasting this same command in the command prompt.
In one or more of the coordinate fields I am getting what appears as random out-of-range values. When it happens I get the "Field overflow in record error". It seems to happen "at random". The problem comes and goes repeatedly. I can't figure out what triggers it or makes it go away. When it works right the file looks fine (for the sake of brevity I truncated the lines after the 5th field in these example output files) :
another time it was just X and Z. You get the point.
All of these examples were produced in the same autocad session with the same drawing, the same command, and the same template file. It only seems to affect the coordinate fields. Does anyone have any clue what could be going on here?
