Hello. We have a serious issue with text being completely inconsistent in both model views and layouts. Annotations in the model aren't too critical but they are bothersome because they are completely unpredictable. I will give an example of both.

If I open the text editor, change nothing and exit, the text now centers and lines up with the leader line. See below (the annotation above has not been 'fixed' yet).
This is annoying but not critical. The real problem is with our notes in our sheets when we print. I created notes, they look great. 2 or 3 weeks goes by and then one day the notes are all 'bigger' even though the settings are the exact same.

You can see in the images below, the text box shows the original size of the text, but now the text extends past the original box. If I open the project on another computer WITHOUT receiving changes it looks perfect and all text is within its original text box and the settings have not changed. I send and receive changes and all the text extends, with the setting staying the same.
It does not have to do with scale since the text lives on the layout not in a model view. We thought it may be windows "auto-scaling" text since we are using 4K monitors but have display in windows set to 150% but we never change that so ArchiCAD shouldn't be changing on the fly like it is.

Any help would be appreciated,
