Q - question

Text always readable in the MTEXT editor.

A - answer If the MTEXTFIXED variable is set to 2, the text editor zooms automatically to the edited text. So the text remains readable even if it is too close (large), too far (small), rotated, upside-down, or off-screen.

Setting MTEXTFIXED to 1 does the opposite - rotated text (both dtext and paragraph mtext) will be in-place edited in a rotated edit box.

This behaviour depends also on the MTEXTED variable (oldeditor) - see Help.
