Hi all!

Hopefully someone with more CAD knowledge then me can help me with my problem

I have on and off trouble with text within my keynotes not displaying correctly.  (see screenshot)
I am running AutoCAD 2015 and cant seem to resolve the problem. The keynotes are set up as blocks with attributes.

If I change the text in an affected key note it displays properly for awhile, only to distort again when the file is closed and re-opened.  The affected keynotes appear to be random and change each time the file is opened.  Sometimes they are slightly distorted like the attached pics, but other times they have large lines going every which way across the screen.  It seems to only be affecting a couple of computers in the office, others can open the same file with no distortion.

Is anyone familiar with this issue?  Help!

I would take a damaged font file or a graphics card issue as suspects.

What font is being used?

Is the text annotative?

If you start a new drawing and insert a keynote in it does the same problem occur?

Can you attach a copy of the drawing to your next post so we can take a look at it ourselves?  Images are nice but one cannot troubleshoot a problem properly using an image.
