Chunky text

Hi Wout &c

We're occasionally seeing text being rendered as super chunky (see pic)

I haven't quite worked out when this happens, but once it starts happening, it seems to happen all the time.

Also setting RenderTextAsText = false seems to cause it not to happen but can sometimes cause "spidery" or too-thin text.

Any ideas what it might be? I've seen this happen in AutoCAD very occasionally when you render a drawing very zoomed out and then zoom in a long way without doing a "regen" - not sure if there's some equivalent in cadlib?

Any suggestions welcome - I haven't got any sample code cos I cant reliably reproduce it...

I've seen this a few times in the past and fixed it whenever encountered, but I don't remember the specific conditions.

The equivalent for regen in CadLib would be a CreateDrawables call, but that would just redo the same thing.
