Partial text not showing up

Recommended Posts

In X8 (and happened in others before) if I move a Chief file from one computer to the next sometimes some of my general plan notes, labels, etc wont all be visible. Meaning if I have the word 'Living Room' I may only be able to see the partial word 'Living Ro'...etc. until I manually drag the box wider to expose the rest of the label. Is there a default or something that is changing the text box size? Same text is being used on both computers and it doesnt change the size or type of font that Im aware of. It just changes the box so that the entire words arent being exposed. Is there a way to get them back to normal besides going through each label and expanding? Thanks!!!

Well after posting the question I did find another thread that discussed the same issue and seems to be the consensus that people see it happen and no one knows how to fix it besides just resizing every time?...Thanks....

Yes, open each text box ,that has a problem, and re-check auto height and width. You may have changed text type.

      Anyone know how to change label text size? I am working on a large building and the layout scaling is 1/32". The labels are too small and cant be read. I cant find options for text size all the label panel, all it has that box that says use default, that I can check and uncheck. But don't know where to edit this default size or the individual label text size.

      Does anyone know how to create custom arrows for leaders.  I know Chief has many different arrows to select but I am still old school and like the thick arrows that I used to draw that are Architectural.  This has been one of my pet peeves is keeping my drawings looking Architecturally hand drawn i.e. text, line weights dims, and arrow are key.

      I am having a problem with Rich text adding double arrows, one on each line segment. It just started doing this in X10. I have looked in Help and looked thru numerous pages on Search and find no option to even add a second arrow, much less turn it off! Very frustrating. Anyone know how to change this to just one arrow? One old topic suggested the Connect Line Segments might be turned off, but that is not the case; I checked and it is On.

      Is there a way in Chief to do a multiple copy/replicate object of a text object and have the ability to auto update the text? Specifically, I need to multiple copy text and need it to update the text from 250 to 251 etc. I need to do this hundreds of times. :/

      I just upgraded to X10 and all of my text boxes are misaligned so once I have finished writing my text and press OK to go back to floor plan view, I can only see half of the text. The text is also misaligned with the white background of the text box. The white background is where it should be. I have even tried to change the layer and alter it as a custom text size to see if it was a setting issue but it is the same problem for all layers.
