Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding text in a drawing, part of Up and Running with AutoCAD LT.
- Once we have our text styles all set up…and ready to go in our AutoCAD LT drawing,…we need to start thinking about…adding text to our drawing.…Now there's two types of text available…in AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.…There's single-line text and there's multi-line text.…We're going to look at single-line text first.…And we're going to zoom in on the left-hand floor plan…and we're going to look at this…magenta colored box and also this magenta text.…Now the two lines of text are single-line text.…
Now you'll notice that the text itself…is going outside the box.…Now you cannot edit text, single-line text…I hasten to add, in the same way…that you would edit in, say, Microsoft Word for example.…It is purely a single line of text like that.…So Meeting Room is a single line of text.…To Be Used Only By Staff is a single line of text.…Now there's no wraparound tools…available in single-line text.…So if I want to edit this particular piece of text,…what I will have to do is create a new line of text…where I can obviously wrap this text around…
