Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Formatting text, part of Up and Running with AutoCAD for Mac.
…Since we can't be there to verbally explain how to build…the things we draw, we must communicate in text on our drawings.…AutoCAD for Mac allows us to create styles that we can save, which…have specific properties like font, angle, height,…width, and style like bold or italic.…We'll go to the Format menu, and choose…Text Style, which opens the text style dialogue.…Annotative text styles are special, in that they change size when…inserted into model space, and viewed through viewports of different scales.…
Since we're focusing on placing our annotations in…paper space we'll focus on standard textiles for now.…To create a new style, we'll click on the…Plus button here and we'll name this style Notes.…I'll use the font Roman S and we can see the preview changes.…I usually recommend not setting a height here in…the style, as you're somewhat locked into the height.…And if we specify this textile later, in let's say a dimension…style, the height will be overridden with the value we set here.…
So I'll leave it at zero to give us some flexibility later.…
