Setting Horizontal or Vertical Orientation

AutoCAD orients line text as vertical or horizontal. You can only assign vertical orientation to text if the associated font supports dual orientation.

You can create more than one line of vertical text. Each successive text line is drawn to the right of the preceding line. The normal rotation angle for vertical text is 270 degrees.

NOTE Vertical orientation is not supported for TrueType fonts.


To set vertical orientation in a text style

1 From the Format menu, choose Text Style.
2 In the Text Style dialog box, select a style from the Style Name list.
3 Choose Vertical.
4 To update the selected style and the text using the selected style in the drawing, choose Apply.
5 Choose Close.
