[solved] Text Width not being retained.

Postby BarryW » Sat Nov 21, 2015 8:05 pm

Hi,
I think this is a bug, but could someone else confirm :

Type some text;
Edit the x-scale = 0.75;
Notice that the text has shrunk to 75% width;
Save the drawing;
Notice the text is still at 75% after the save;
Close the drawing.

Re-open the drawing;
Now the text is back at 100% width, x scale is now 1 again.

Block Attributes do the same;
DWG or DXF, same problem;

Running Windows 7, with Qcad 12.1,
thanks,
Barry

Yes, I can confirm this for simple texts. As an immediate workaround, you might want to change the property "Simple" to "No".
