text location in drawing is at the wrong position

Question asked by Will Letuno on Apr 25, 2014

When I enter coordinates (X and Y) to position text in a drawing sheet format the text is always positioned at half the value I enter. Please see the pdf attached. The point in the lower left corner of the sheet is X0, Y0. (confirmed by the point pm) As shown by the dimensions the text is centered at X.375, Y.375. However; both the property manager and on screen direct entry boxes show the text to be at X.75, Y.75.


I found the same problem described in this discussion from solidworks 2011 but there was no resolution:


Is this a bug that remains unresolved for years or is there a reason why these values seem scaled by a factor of 2? Sheet scale has no effect, this sheet was 1:1.
