I have some blocks with multiple attribute lines to name equipment represented by the block. When an attribute is left empty and printed to paper (and/or SVG) the print out is as expected. Alternatively when I print to PDF QCAD (Qt) seems to put a phantom period (.) where the attribute is.

This is prevalent on Windows 8.1 and Fedora 21.
