    We use a slanted font for showing proposed improvements and vertical for existing conditions. I created Linetypes for the utilities so that the text in the LT would be 15-degrees oblique. When I load the new LT(s), all text are vertical, same concerns for text widthes for existing conditions.

    so the linetype definition references the style that has an oblique angle for the text?

    yes the LT Definition references a style that has the oblique and/or width factors already setup.

    AFAIK, it can't be done using fonts.
    You could make a shape file with the characters you need and use the shape in the linetype.

    thanks, due to the timing issues and found a text style that already had the LEAN to it and have resolved to using that font when needed.

    Nice.
    I should have mentioned that option also.
