MText Font Size Keeps Reformating

I installed the DataCAD 19 update and now when I go to modify a MTEXT dialog box it changes the font size in the box and on the screen. I was able to change it in the dialog box and it show the proper scale on the sheet, but now if I change it in the dialog box it is HUGE on the screen and will not allow me to correct. The update must have changed some setting, but I cannot find it. Please help!

I have been experiencing the same issue, not been able to determine what is causing it.

I ran into this problem mid-November. I think it is the result of a Windows 10 update. Unfortunately, I don't know what's causing it or how to work-around it or fix it.

And each time one edits the same MText, it increases (to next larger?) size each time.

Still an issue. Have to reduce my MText by .65 each Time I edit it.

Hmm can't duplicate this. Tried several MText setting changes I thought might be related like Text Scale, Line Spacing, SHX vs TTF. Edit via MCR macro, Context Menu, and Datacad Menus. Running Windows 10 1803 update 17134.48. :?

How are you guys invoking the MText to create it and how are you invoking the change Mtext contents?

I'm having the same problem in DCAD 20. Funny thing, when I change/text/content four times in a row it goes back to being smaller than the original. Did not have this problem DCAD 19, used Mtext exclusively with no problem. Any update on this item?
Thanks.
Jeff

This is a major problem on my code sheet where I edit most of the text.

Since i don't use MText much, only Project Title, I have enlarged my Default items by .65, so when I edit them and they enlarge, they end up the size I want them.
