Hi everyone, I have something further to add to this discussion. It is Protel's problem, I am doing a very similar thing at the moment and it is also not working. It shows the same symptoms as the cut & paste to WORD. I am exporting the schematic to DXF, importing to ACAD. The very same symptoms with text also plague this process, random rotations of component text, pin numbers, net labels and plain text. Some sheets export fine, other sheets are a shamble of rotated text piled upon each other. With the problem appearing across so many standard applications it can't help but be a Protel problem.
