I am all out of ideas on how to rectify my model space text issues for a set of drawings. There are approximately 12 drawings which all have the same problem. I have not seen this problem in other drawings.
The text in model space appears bold and rough. I have checked that all the text is set on the 0 Z plane.
I have taken the following corrective actions and have not had success:
-Confirmed text is at Z=0
-Reset the UCS to world
-Changed the Z coordinate to arbitrary number and set it back to 0
-Checked that drawing & viewports are 2-D Wireframe
-Other Desperate Measures: Purged, Audited, Created in PS then move to MS
We had a CAD temp. that set up the drawings who is no longer with us, so I have clue what he did to the drawings when setting them up.
You state you set the Z value to a random number and then back to Zero so these should be but what if you set Units to 0.0000000 is it truly zero?
I have cleaned up all the information from one of the drawings. I have played with the Z coordinate, and the issue occurs also in all of my blocks & xrefs in model space.
I feel since this problem occurs in all the drawings in this set it most likely some mundane setting or something.
I changed the text to the same style. I even matched properties on the text. I have tried exploding the MText to just Text as well and it makes no difference.
Your text in the Model looks not as smooth because it is TXT.SHX.
The text in the layout is smoother because it is TrueType Font Arial Narrow.
You are comparing different fonts.
Make both text styles (Standard and RJA) use the same font and your text will look the same.
There is something wrong with this drawing, I can't find out why.
I copied your viewport, copied THE GOOD TEXT and changed it from paperspace to model space, it changed its appearance because the viewport has a slight Z in it.
If use a brand new drawing and move the text from paperspace to model space it's fine.
