when exporting the design to DXF Or DWG (I did both),
the frame around the Irrigation Block Label (the blue rectangle) is too small - See attached screen shot.
dose any one have an idea on how to fix it?

Hi Ari,

The irrigation labels in IRRICAD Standalone are created very differently to how AutoCAD would, being Visual CADD symbols, therefore there is little correlation between the two.
For users who are converting between IRRICAD Standalone and IRRICAD Link we always recommend that the hydraulic labels be recreated in IRRICAD Link so that they will also be dynamic with their hydraulic item as well as look much better.

However, if simply exporting to DWG / DXF file to send to a client then some items, then changing the font in AutoCAD may solve the issue. The label text comes in as a "VC" text style, which may no longer fit the border of the original label. In IRRICAD Standalone you can also map the fonts to AutoCAD fonts prior to each export - see Settings|Import/Export Settings.

Alternatively, the label borders could be removed by turning off the border option in Settings|Labels and Updating the labels.

Hi jo and thanks for the reply.
I tried to change the text export map,but eventually what I did was to add a blank row at the bottom of the label and a few extra spaces at the end of the flow line...
those steps solved the issue...
