Since last few months text disappears after file is saved, closed and opened again.

Please see in attached file.

Can I know the reason of this issue?

If the problem is reproducible, please proceed as follows:
- open your file
- add the text
- File > Save as...
- Choose format "R15 [2000/LT2000] DXF Drawing [dxflib] (*.dxf)" - that's the last entry in the list of available formats
- Save under a new name

Attach the file you have saved like this.

Done. I will let you know if this goes now.

Another question for you. The version I have is 3.16. I downloaded newer version. The pdf export is not working. Strange to know that border is displayed but not matter inside the border. Just to let you know that this is after details in Edit/Drawing preferences/printing is updated. Any idea what could be the reason?

The idea would be to attach the file here, so I can try and reproduce the problem, thanks.

Again, please save file (with texts present) using the dxflib filter and attach the resulting file.

A brief look at the file makes me suspect that the texts might have been created on layer "Defpoints" and that Teigha might treat that layer differently than other layers (i.e. not allow any / certain texts on it). Just a wild guess for now and I still cannot reproduce this here. Another potential culprit could be the use of a font that causes problems.

Again, the DXF file with texts, saved using dxflib would likely be helpful.
