Problem with text render opening dwg file

Post by atossa » Tue May 18, 2021 8:33 pm


I'm using Qcad 3.26.2 on PopOS 20,10.

I attached a screenshot of my screen on Qcad (black background) and one of my colleage on Drafsight (white background) of the same dwg file.

Text is not rendering well on Qcad. Pay attention to the word "electrique" of the "Armoire d'alimentation electrique".
It is too big and seems completly detached (at a wrong place).

It's the same for the word "entreprise" on the left side of the picture.

And so on on all dwg files I open with Qcad.

What settings should I change to get good rendering?

please attach the dwg to your post or an example dwg which shows the same issue for further investigation. Thanks.
