    Text Tools in Options Bar

    Casually doing some project template updates and suddenly the text tools normally found on a contextual tab are now showing in the options bar-



    Selecting existing text or creating new text, the effect is the same. Anyone else seen this?
    I opened another project in a new Revit session and things were back to normal.

    Is this a graphics bug (like the type selector showing in the options bar) or a real thing?

    Did you already try undocking your Properties window and then redocking?

    No, but after a save the buttons went back to their usual place. I'm guessing it's just some funky underlying program coding I know nothing about. I haven't seen this exact thing ever since the ribbon was introduced in v2010.

    Weird

    I've been noticing some weird toolbar issues when Revit 2019 is maximized time to time. Pretty much have to stretch the window till it fills the monitor.

    Do you mean not having the window maximised but you're still stretching it out to (almost) fill the screen? I've been doing that often for awhile now since v2018 because when the window is fully maximised it won't let me click drag by the window header over to another screen. The window just stays locked. Only happens with revit.
