- [Instructor] Since we can't be there to verbally explain … how to build the things that we draw, … we must communicate in text in 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. … Under the format menu, find text style, … and now we get the text style dialogue box. … Annotated text styles are special in that they change size … when inserted into model space, … and viewed through different view ports or scales. … Since we're focusing on placing our annotations … in paper space, we'll focus on standard text styles for now. … To create a new style, simply click on the plus button … and then give it a name. … I want to use the font, Roman S … found here, as my font. … I usually recommend not setting a specific text height … here in the style, as you're somewhat locked … into that height later on. … If we specify this text style later, … let's say a dimension style, we'll be overridden …
