Heights and locations of TEXT entities are being coupled

Postby Cambridge Ray » Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:00 pm

Question: Are the heights and locations of 2 AcDbText entities supposed to be coupled? QCAD doesn't think so but a 3rd. party vendor says otherwise. How can I decouple them??

Another way to ask this question is this: In addition to the text group code 40, what other parameter (code, table, dictionary, whatever) affects the location and size of TEXT?

See attachment: the height of the word "Alpha" is supposed to remain constant while the word "Beta" is supposed to increase and decrease.

Congrats to QCAD (which I just discovered) for doing a great job.

Boos to the 3rd. party for doing such a lousy job.

"This looks like a job for dxflib!"

TIA,

I can imagine some attributes to be coupled through the text style. dxflib / QCAD do not currently support text styles. Each text entity has its own style.

The location of two text entities should never be coupled as far as I know.
