Text sizes

Post by debenriver » Mon Apr 30, 2012 3:03 pm

Hi Eric

I've changed to Lion on one computer. Everything seems OK! But I am having trouble with text sizes – there seems to be a limit of 127. If I copy bigger text from an existing drawing (say at 900) it is fine and when I select it, it shows as 900. But I cannot create new text, or change the size of existing text to anything more than 127. Am I doing something odd here?

I know text this big is very big - but on very big drawings at a large scale (say 1/1) ordinary size text is too small to read easily. I'm sure I used to be able to make tex any size I wanted ......

George :D

Bonjour George,

It's not new with Lion.
I added the limit of 127 pixels for the text size in a previous version of RealCADD.
I don't remember which but this limitation exists in 4.10, 4.09, 4.08.
And I don't remember why.
But I have tested to remove this limitation and there is no problem.
So I think that I can remove it definitely.

Thanks.
Eric Pousse

When you get a moment, that would be great!

Thanks Eric
