BricsCAD V19 Linux on Ubuntu18.04
While on-screen of BricsCAD font nicely sits inside a polyline box (rectangle) -
it is way narrower when printed out.
I print only to PDF. I print on paper from PDF, so not sure how it is with on paper.
Is this a fonts substitution problem in your PDF viewer perhaps?
