Text Issues

Civil Guy
This post was updated on .
I imported a dwg file - worked pretty much okay.  I suspect that there might be some confusion by the app about importing Text objects with non-zero rotation - the text that should have been rotated 90 degrees was instead rotated 1.5708 degrees.  That is, I suspect the app is mixing up radians and degrees.

The biggest thing I'm having trouble with just now is using text with a width factor slightly less than 1.

I'd like to use the standard AutoCAD simplex font, but with a width factor of 0.95.  It'll just look better, I think.  I've gone through the process of Modify Properties for a few Text objects and changed the width factor to 0.95.  The change is drawn okay, but doesn't seem to be saved properly.

The next time the drawing is opened, the width factor is changed back to 1.

Can this be fixed easily?

As a newbie, I'm not sure about the protocol here, but I'll also report these as bugs.

I'm using LibreCAD version 2.0.9 with Ubuntu 16.04.

I can confirm this problem with text in a drawing created by AutoCAD that should be rotated 90 degrees being rotated 1.57xxxx degrees when the drawing is opened with LibreCAD.
