Does anyone know why the text is behaving like this when I open up a DXF file?

Possibly someone does, when you share more information.

Which LibreCAD version do you use? On which OS?
Where is this DXF from? Can you share it?
How did you make these screenshots? Is this how the text appear inside LibreCAD?
Do you by chance know the file encoding?

Hi thanks for getting back to me.
Which LibreCAD version do you use? On which OS?
= Windows PRO OS in compatibility mode (vista sp2). Version: 2.1.3
Compiler: GNU GCC 4.9.1
Compiled on: Sep 23 2016
Qt Version: 5.4.1
Boost Version: 1.60.0

Where is this DXF from? Can you share it?= This is exported from Archicad.
I also have this issue with files exported from Chief Architect. & Yes I can share as Its a test file.

How did you make these screenshots?= snip tool windows

 Is this how the text appear inside LibreCAD? = Yes as soon as I open any export dxf file from another program? The file works fine in other programs eg QCAD,nanoCAD, etc....
FYI in QCAD  in the property editor (specific properties) Simple yes/no, Yes creates a similar error?
Could not find a tool in Librecad?

Do you by chance know the file encoding? Not sure what you mean? Is that the year AC saved as 2007?

This behaviour can be found very often (or always?) with files from other origin than LC.
Can be quite annoying  and tedious to correct if there is a lot of text.
