Note placement issue
I just noticed something with the Note function, would someone mind verifying that they are seeing the same thing? If you create a Note and choose the vertica reading direction and a True Type Font (i.e. something other than the default KeyCreator fonts. I chose Arial Black) and place the note in your drawing. In my case, the note moves across the screen based on Zoom Level so as I scroll in our out of the drawing the font changes its position. The anchor point also moves away so that it is not possible to afix it to something so I'm guessing the anchor point for these fonts is to blame.

RE:Note placement issue
It seems OK .  Can you provide more info on the steps to reproduce?  A video?  Graphic setting?

RE:Note placement issue
Deleted my previous comment. I was confusing this with a different note issue.

RE:Note placement issue
I'm not seeing this either. The issue I thought you were referring to is a bug when placing vertical note with true type font with the text created as geometry.The note seems to get squished but it is the same regardless of zoom level.

RE:Note placement issue

After some additional testing it would appear that it may be related to scale and/or zoom level. I was in a building layout that someone else created (to some unknown scale 🙄) when this happened. I tested in another drawing file and did not see the issue. I am attaching screenshots that show the issue I see in the other file. The note in question is in white and all I'm doing between screenshots is zooming with the mouse wheel. I took one image at each mouse click so obviously each additional mouse click would walk the note further out of position.

RE:Note placement issue
Can you try copy/paste into a new file & see if that fixes issue?
