Working with text

Creating line text

When you create text, you end each line of text by pressing Enter. Each line of text is created as a separate entity that you can modify.

To create text
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Draw > Text > Single Line Text.
  3. On the Text toolbar, click the Single Line Text tool (
  4. ).
  • Type dtext and then press Enter.
  • Specify the insertion point for the first character.
  • Specify the height of the text.
  • Specify the text rotation angle.
  • Type the text, and then press Enter at the end of each new line.
  • To complete the command, press Enter again.
  • NOTE If you've already created text and want new text to appear immediately below the previous text, choose Draw > Text > Single Line Text. When prompted for an insertion point, press Enter. The new text will keep the same height and rotation angle as the previous text.
