Can anyone tell me why Mtext in model space displays (and plots) darker and bolder than Mtext in Paper Space?

Also check the elevation and extrusion of the Mtexts.

TTF fonts do that when the conditions noted above exist (Z is not zer, rotate UCS etc.): for a quick fix if you don't understand the above is to change your fonts to SHX AutoCAD font files.

 

If FLATTEN command does not work of course :smileyhappy:

Z Value to 0 (Zero) will fix it.

.....unless the Target of the View is a non-zero Z values

.... unless the Visual Style is anything other than 2D Wireframe.

 

TT fonts and AutoCAD just don't mix in a 3D environment, there are lots of pitfalls.
