Q - question

Mysterious text rotation when editing.

A - answer When you edit MText (paragraph text) in one of your drawings, AutoCAD rotates the text to the actual north. Appears only during editing, after editing it will return back to the correct project north rotation.

This behavior can be surprisingly caused by the layer linetype, simply change the linetype and the text is edited correctly, without rotating.
