Editing Stacked Text

When you edit stacked text, you can change the upper text and lower text independently. You can also restore previous default values to the current stacked text or save the new settings as defaults.

To edit stacked text

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Text.
  2. Select the mtext object you want to edit.
  3. In the Multiline Text Editor, highlight the stacked text.
  4. Right-click and select Properties from the shortcut menu.
  5. In the Stack Properties dialog box under Text, enter new text for the upper or lower parts of the stacked text.
  6. Under Appearance, select a style: Tolerance, Fraction (Horizontal), or Fraction (Diagonal).
  7. Under Position, select one of the following options:
  8. Top: Aligns the top of the fraction with the top of the text line.
    Center: Centers the fraction vertically to the center of the text line. This is the default position.
    Bottom: Aligns the bottom of the fraction with the text baseline.

  9. Under Text Size, select a size for each character in the stacked text as a percentage of the size of the current text style.
  10. The default size for stacked text is 70 percent.

  11. To save the current settings as the default, or to restore the settings to the current default settings, choose Default. Choose OK to exit the dialog boxes and apply the changes.

NOTE The Multiline Text Editor does not display the stacked text aligned by the position option you select. For example, if you chose Top, the stacked text does not appear to be aligned to the top of the text line. When you close the Multiline Text Editor, the stacked text is displayed in your drawing aligned to the top of the text line.
