Text not working properly

See included picture for text issues. Started this test with the iPhone 6, and different part. When I changed the text to italics letters were missing. Then I redid the text test from scratch in the iPad, more letters missing at this time. Also dimensions information not consistent. Can't figure out if I'm doing something incorrectly.

    Sorry, but I have no clue on how to provide a link to my model.

    Hi Erich_Koch,

    Can you check the inputs to the extrude that are using the sketch text?  I'm assuming that all of the areas of the letter aren't in there.  Or even easier to test, start a new extrude and select the sketch with the desired sketch text from the tree and see if it adds all of the text there.  If that doesn't fix it, please share an issue with support.

    I just deleted the text, and placed a new "SampleText". Everything is fine.
    Edit the text, changed it to "italics". Result: missing letters.
    see included picture. I shared the design with support.

    Not sure what is happening. Just changed "Dedicated Micro Systems" to italics, no problem. Placed a second text above DMS and then changed it to italics. No issues.
