Sketch with text cannot be resolved

I'm drawing a rail with numbers on. I have a sketch with help lines, and place points in a linear pattern. I use these points to place the numbers, the numbers middle point i coincidence with the help points.

0 to 4 goes well, but at 5 the sketch cannot be resolved. What am I doing wrong?

Zoom in on constraints:

    This isn't the answer any of us wanted.. But I did get it to be fully constrained without turning red.

    Here's the link.

    I just cleared all the constraints, mad the top center point coincide with the point on the top construction line, then constrained one of the bottom two corners, then made the center construction line equal to the center construction line of one of the other numbers. There's probably something somewhere I didn't find that could have fixed it, but this looks like it works.

    Thanks for the effort!
    If I understand correctly, it's not me who made a mistake? I guess it's some kind of rounding error that causes the constraint to nearly work, but not quite?
