Q - question

My drawing text is upside-down. Why?

A - answer A turned over text displayed upside down can be caused by several reasons in AutoCAD:
  1. The "Upside down" effect set in the current text style (STYLE command).
  2. The current USS set in the "backwards" orientation (upside-down).
  3. The current view set in the "backwards" orientation (upside-down).
  4. Text in a block or xref which is inserted as "rotated".
  5. If the text is a dimension text, the dimtext USS may get improperly transferred from a foreign CAD application, or the Text rotation parameter is set (see the dim Properties, Ctrl+1). These situations can be fixed by the LISP utility FixDimensions - see
