I've created a linetype which show the wording 40A BUSBAR within the line, but some reason the wording becomes inverted and the words and does show properly within the gap of the line.
Can anyone help on why its doing this and how to stop it.

Thanks in advance.

you can try rotating the line you draw from the mid point 180 to change the direction, and the position of the text depends on the values you used to define it S, R, X and Y.

The size of the text is also affected by the settings for the text style
that the linetype references.

For those with older versions that don't have Reverse [such as 2004 in this Discussion Group area], you can use:
http://cadtips.cadalyst.com/object-properties/reverse-entity-direction

And even for those who do have Reverse, the routine in the link works with more entity types than Reverse does.
