NX Text W-scale ?!

Siemens Phenom Siemens Phenom

Why on earth does NX 1847 , still, after all these years ..., change the W-scale of "Text" when changing the length or the height of the text?
 Why is there no button such as "Lock W-scale" ?
Imagine that i would like to create a text with the overall length of 85 mm AND keep the w-scale =100.
So i enter 85 and press "tab", then NX will not change the height but the w-scale.
 Please tell me I have missed how to do this ....

Hi @1u7obd 

 

 Why is there no button such as "Lock W-scale" ? 

I see there are some ER's present for it. 

As a workaround if you drag any spherical corner handle in a diagonal direction, then W scale remains intact. Further, I observed that using either lower left or lower right spherical handle will give you more control as using these specific handles, length changes by a whole number.

Thanks for the tip,
then we're only missing the option to set a height in "sane numbers".
-Seems like a feature where two completely different persons wrote the spec vs the code,
and the guy who wrote the code had no clue on what it was he was creating.

Such a silly limitation on a very nice feature.

I will write ER.
