LABEL rotation issue with hotlink *.mod files in Teamwork

1. Made *.mod file like this with horizontal LABEL on bottom left corner:

2. Placed *.mod file in Teamwork file and rotated it 180 degrees with "Adjust angle of fixed angle object.... " ticker on. LABEL placed in top right corner:

3. Other users in TEAMWORK project see same *.mod file LABEL it's shown below with text out of *.mod file. Also If I LEAVE Teamwork project and JOIN again also I see this LABEL jumped out from its position.

I have ~50 such mod files in my project.

Give a try to adjust text's anchor point to middle and place it to its place accordingly. Before joining your host project, clean local data files (leave teamwork project or clean TW files.) and then rejoin to host project.

I hope it works.

Middle point is not ok for me because on different scales it starts expands from outside walls. But I will try it in future.

You are not scaling your texts with the current scale of the project then? (Scale with plan/Model size?)

Looks like I described issue a bit wrong. This is not text, but its label 😞 and labels do not have "Model Size" parameter. I need to use label because it takes parameter (Name) out of door element inside *.mod file

Does turning the 'Always Readable' option off in the label settings do anything?

Actually the text might end up being upside down then.

 

Use the centre anchor point as Burak suggested and place different text size labels in different layers for different scales.

I think you should always have different layers for annotation at different scales.

Turning "Always Readable" helps in most cases just when *.mod file is rotated upside down, text also becomes upside down. But at the moment it still better solution to have text upside down in some placed than having it flying outside *.mod file. Thanks Barry 🙂 Cannot "Accept as Solution" because its not solving issue fully.
