TEXT BOX GHOSTING PROBLEMS

N/A

I've attached a file which has started to display a text box problem that I think
I've seen before. One of the boxes in question is cyan. There are others in the
drawing that behave similarly. New boxes that I added after noticing the problem
don't behave the same way.
WHen you edit the box, the text distorts and overwrites. Once you close the box,
you can than see what you did.
Some factors to consider:
- This file crashed once and I restored the autobackup copy.
- I moved a large block of the drawing within the drawing but this text box wasn't
part of the move.
- I have moved that box a few times by itself.
I'm not exactly sure just what I was/may've been doing when it started this behavior.

Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
Can you send an image of what you are seeing?
When I look at the file, I don't thing I see what you are describing.
Use JPG for the image it is compressed more than BMP.
If you do not know how to quickly create an image, let me know.
Regards,
Rick B.

Ricky, the following site will have a Jing video showing what I see as the problem
re subject. Note the little strange rectanglular symbols ahead of the "Be sure
to feed....." paragraph. They showed up as I was trying to indent that line using
the Space bar which didn't work. Than I used the Tab bar and that worked leaving
these symbols.

Ron,
I have sent this on to development to investigate.

Ricky, re the same file that is the subject of this thread. I've made a Jing image
of the part of the drawing where at least one misbehaving text block is located.
Every now and than, another ghost image shows up that looks like a rectangle with
a grid within it. It can't be selected. Refreshing doesn't make it go away. But
when I opened the Sheet view, the drawing sheet was not at Full Extent view. So
I executed that command. When I went back to the Model, the ghost was gone. It
was as if the Model sheet was transparent with the Sheet view showing thru it. It
also could be that just the action of changing screens could have "refreshed" the
screen.
I'm continuing to use the file but am concerned that it may be corrupted. It has
had a tendency to crash more than expected. It does so when I'm trying to move
something and inadvertently hit the right mouse button bringing up the context menu
at the same time. It than freezes and crashes.
Can this file be salvaged or should I just start all over again? And if I should
scrap it, can I saftely copying some parts over to a new file?
Go to http://screencast.com/t/LB0j96larU3 for image.
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
I looked at what you posted relative to the double image when editing the
text box. I have sent the file on over to development to investigate.
Are you talking about 2D Model (Model?) and Sheet1(Sheet view?)? How are you
switching back and forth between the sheets?
Copying and pasting from one file to another should be OK.

Ricky, yes, the Model and Sheet are the terms that SE uses, I think. The tabs are
at the bottom of the screen. One is named 2D Model and the other is named "Prep
thru Mitering" which is the name I've assigned to the SHEET view. In this file,
at this point, there is only one sheet.
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
If you can reproduce steps to get the double display of sheets, send the
file and the steps to reproduce it to me. You may not know this, but you can
select evverything on the sheet by using CTRL+'a'. Hold down the CTRL button
anf press 'a'. This is easier than trying to fence select everything.

Rick B.

Ricky, sorry but I don't have the slightest idea how it happened. I've since scrapped
this file because in addition to what I've already reported, it started today not
allowing me to add Sheets. Or I should say, it showed that I added them when I
viewed the Reorder command but they didn't show up as a tab to select. So I gave
up and copied over all the elements into a new file. I'm yet to test it to see if
I was sucessful.
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
That's a known bug that I reported quite some time ago. It's supposed to get fixed
in the next version.
