Creating Line Text

Using TEXT you can create one or more lines of text and end each line when you press ENTER. Each text line is a separate object that you can relocate, reformat, or otherwise modify.

To create line text

  1. From the Draw menu, choose Text Single Line Text.
  2. Specify the insertion point for the first character. Press ENTER to locate the new text immediately below the last text object you created, if any.
  3. If the text height is set to 0 in the current text style, you are prompted to specify the height of the text. (See “Working with Text Styles.”)

  4. Set the text height by dragging the pointing device until the distance between the cursor and the insertion point indicates the text height you want.
  5. or
    On the command line, enter a value in drawing units.
    (See “Setting Text Height.”)

  6. Set a text rotation angle by dragging the pointing device until the angle between the cursor and the insertion point represents the text rotation angle you want.
  7. or
    On the command line, enter the X,Y coordinate.

  8. Enter the text. Press ENTER to end one line of text and begin another.
  9. The TEXT command displays the text in the drawing as you type. Each line of text is a separate object. If you select another point in the drawing while TEXT is active, the cursor moves to that point, and you can continue entering text from there.

  10. Press ENTER on a blank line to end text creation.
