My text / labels is not displaying in my DXF background file of my standalone drawing.
The standalone platform's background layer display capabilities has minimal support for mtext (multi-line text). If it is mtext you will need to change it to either regular text or another type of text.
Open the DXF file in AutoCAD
Select all the annotation/labels by right clicking in the drawing andusing the "quick select" option from the pop up menu.
Set up your quick selection options to select all the mtext labels inyour drawing file.
After all the text is selected using the "X" (explode) command on thecommand line. This will convert all your "mtext" to regular "text".
Save the file
Add the file as a background layer
Select all the text the need to display in the background file
Use the "drop element" tool for all the text. Make sure the drop element dialog box only has the "Complex" and "Text" checkboxes selected
