FS#1508 - QCAD CE: Subscript and superscript formatting lost when file re-opened

When multiple superscripts or subscripts are used in a text field, re-opening the saved dxf file will fail to render all but the first super/subscript element. As per attached example. Bug occurs on all Mac OS X from Mavericks onward.

Minimal reproducible steps:
1. Open new document in QCAD
2. Add a text object
3. Make part of the text sub or super-script
4. Make another part of the text also sub/superscript, with at least one ‘normal’ character between the two sub/superscripts
5. Save file and close it. Don’t have to quit QCAD.
6. Reopen the file. Voila, all but the first sub/superscript element is broken.


ps. QCAD is a pretty great piece of software, nice work all.

I cannot reproduce this problem here (using your example text or any other text).
Could you please attach your DXF file? Thanks.

Could it be that you are using the free QCAD Community Edition? I can indeed reproduce a similar problem with that.

Yes, indeed I am using the QCAD Community Edition.
