Define text height as in AutoCAD for compatibility reasons


Add the option to define text height the same way as in AutoCAD, i.e. height of the upper case character instead of line height.

AutoCAD defines text height as the height of the upper case characters of a font instead of line height as Vectorworks does. Upon import Vectorworks converts AutoCAD text heights to the proper line height equivalent, however it is not possible to specify the text height in AutoCAD style in a simple manner. Automatic conversion to equivalent line height would be fine, as it will then end up properly in dwg exports. Since it already works upon import of DWG files the code is already available in Vectorworks. This will make it easier to conform to text sizes specified in dwg centric offices.

This ties into the request for importing/exporting text styles in dwg files
