Design Layer text works as expected, but in Sheet Layer View Ports, the "space" character, (y'know, press the space bar) goes bad in OGL.


It's OK in Wireframe, but in OGL, positions of characters following a "space" relocate close to beginning of the text string.

Causes stacked up characters in the VP.


I remember similar, but don't recall link to the space bar.


Could any of you please take a look or try to recreate. It might be something local to my system

Have you tried different fonts?


Nope, just tried. It appears to be all fonts.


But what does eliminate the problem is Advanced Properties and uncheck the None fill uses Alpha Transparency.


Sounds like a bug to submit. But at least there is a workaround for most situations.

Wow, Pat! - Nice catch. +1 on the (ghost) Like button. That fixes, or at least works around.


Not sure why alpha and space characters are interdependent in OGL. But then, I'm not sure why anything in Vectorworks does or doesn't work.


I will endeavor to bug submit.
