2012 SP3 Disappearing Space Name solved

Recommended Posts

I just upgraded to Vectorworks 2012 Architect SP3 from 2008 and our space names disappeared. I tried to apply the tech support suggestion to go to Finder > Go > Applications > Font Book and remove duplicates for the Arial Narrow Font. Nice idea, but it didn't work. I then noticed the font size inside our space symbol was scaled down by 1/144. Our area calculations used to be in square inches and now Vectorworks 2012 converted them to square feet. So somehow during the conversion the font was scaled along with the units! I set the fonts back to 14pt and everything is back! Just to let everyone know who is facing the same situation.
