Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Multiline text, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Let's go back to the Draw menu…and choose Multiline Text here.…Unlike Dtext, where I was asked for a starting point,…now I'm asked for the first and the second…corner points of a window.…From here we can see the formatting…is incredibly different.…All the lines of text that we typed…will be considered a single object.…Another difference we can see…is the visor that appears at the top…when we edit or create Mtext.…We have much more control over things…like bold and italic,…as well as underline and overline.…
Also, if we expand the visor…we have even more options.…Like alignments and inserting symbols.…Finally, if we right-click inside of the text area,…we have even more options.…Like paragraph and bullets and lists.…Bullets and numbering can be quite helpful.…I'm gonna choose Numbered,…and now I'll type a few lines.…And we can see that it automatically adds…the next numbering.…Also, if I go back up and press Return,…it'll actually renumber and add lines for me.…
The only way to exit the text editor…is to click Save here.…
