Rich text double arrows

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.

Are you using a Leader Line with Rich Text?

I can get what you describe if I use Disconnect Edges on the leader line once it is drawn.

But as far as I know, you cant set Disconnect Edges and then choose the Leader Line tool  - Choosing the Leader Line tool  automatically toggles off Disconnect Edges.

 

Or..are you using Text Line With Arrow, in which case the Connect CAD Segments toggled off, will result in what you describe with the arrows on each segment when you drag a multi segment line.

 

Can you post back and describe exactly what tools you are using.

Thanks, Glenn. That's what I am using. Almost all of my condocs use Rich Text; I've done it that way for years. This just started today all out of the blue. I turned Connect CAD Segments off and back on just to see if it would clear up; it didn't. It cleared up after I rebooted as I noted above. I tried it again just now with Connect CAD Segments turned off. I only get one arrow using Rich Text in that scenario also. I don't have a clue what might have triggered the strange behavior. At least it is working now like it is supposed to.

      Our company uses OneDrive for our file system. The company also has particular fonts they use for documents. Our Template plan file and layout file use those fonts but there's an issue with that. Anytime one of us opens a plan file or layout file (whether it's a new blank one or for an existing project) we get the 'Replace Fonts' Dialog box asking us to replace the missing font (company font) with another. Is there a way to get it to stop asking that each time and remember where the font is?
       
      We all have the font installed on our individual laptops. The fonts are also found on OneDrive. I've followed the article about this issue but the solution doesn't help since we all have the font installed but CA program can't seem to find it. Even if we replace the font with the same font (ie. it'll say 'Arial' font is missing and you select replace with 'Arial') that it doesn't actually replace it with that font. Once the file is open it chooses 'Verdana' font whether we choose the correct font we want or not.
       
      Any solutions that allow us to keep using the company font?

      Hey Mr. Chief Wizard,
       
      Is there a way to display only selected text in say a "Framing, Floor Plan View" active layer set that will not show up in the "Working Plan View"?  When I send to Layout, I would like specific text associated with the "Framing, Floor Plan View" to only show up on the "Framing" page and not on the regular plan view sheet that I have.
       
      Thanks,

      Good morning, would anyone know how to show the dimensions text horizontally and not parallel to where the dimensions is being taken?
      I am tried looking in preferences / setting / other chief talks with no luck.
       
      Much appreciated!

      Hi all! I have recently upgraded from X11 to X13 and have found a wee niggle when showing dimensions. Previously, I could show an internal dimension with the markers indicating the outer wall as a reference (to ensure the reader that the dimension is internal). When I click the dimension line they appear, but when I click off they disappear.
       
      Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

      I've used AutoCAD since 1985 and CA for the last decade. But I've always been stuck on this one thing.
      I understand that I can change the default txt sizes in the default settings. and I can modify the annotations that delineate font characteristics. But when I have an EXISTING line label (in this case a Terrain perimeter indicating the property line)  how do I change the label text heights without redrawing the line?
