Should I be using Text or Rich Text?  Why are there still two in the various updates?  What is the difference?

 

Not sure if you really got the answer you were looking for or not.  I think Perry alluded to what you were seeking but didn't elaborate when he said  "Rich text gives you more options for formatting text." 

 

Rich text gives you the ability to use Bold, Italics, Underline, etc.  Normal text does not have these options.

In addition, with Rich Text, any individual Letters, Words or Lines can be different.  With just plain Text everything is the same.

      Since upgrading to x14 at least 2 of my co-workers in my department are having a text issue when saving as a PDF. I have not had the issue they're having but it's becoming an "inconvenience" that if they need something sent to PDF, those of us not having the issue will have to open the file and do it for them.
       
      I've attached some pictures of the issue vs what it's supposed to look like.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue and knew the solution to fix it?

      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!

      I'm trying to make window numbers with superscript in rich text. I've done this before and not sure why it's not working this time. I go into Microsoft Word, type out the numbers with the superscript, copy and paste into chief rich text but when I go to  re-size the fonts it makes the superscripts back to normal size (if that makes sense). I've also tried the Microsoft keyboard shortcut directly in the chief rich text by highlighting the number and pressing ctrl, shift and the plus sign at the same time but that's not working either.
       
      Any thoughts on why this isn't working?
