  1. Just tried this in a blank file in 2019 SP0 and I did not experience the same issue. Please check the Column Offset, Left Margin, Item Spacing, Text Distance, Text Width, and Padding fields in the object info palette. As well as the Font size for your Header in the Object info Palette. If any of these fields are too large they will create a minimum width for the instrument summary that cannot be overridden by changing the Width Field. Give this a try and let me know if it helps. 


  2. The object on the right (the symbol) will display correctly if you uncheck "display 2D components" in the object info palette. If you delete the 2D Component from the symbol the object will display correctly in a dashed hidden line rendering as well. This does only occur after you change the line render settings dash style to a dashed line. The 2D component is just a solid rectangle that was covering up the hidden lines. If you use the generate 2D Graphics from 3D Components command you choose to create a 2D component using a dashed hidden line rendering mode. This will only display correctly in a viewport if you are in a top/plan view. Hope this helps. image.png
