Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Text wrap, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- When editing the text of a dimension,…whether overwriting it completely,…something that should only be done…in very specific circumstances…and never with another numerical value,…the text can be a little difficult to manage.…Dimension text is MText, which allows us…some flexibility in formatting,…but we've never been able to control…the width of the dimension text box itself,…like we could with conventional MText.…I'm going to overwrite this value.…And we can see that obviously the text…is a little bit too big for the dimension.…
I can try and go back in here and use Return,…but this can cause formatting issues…if the size of the dimension ever changes,…or, more commonly, if you're using annotative dimensions.…Now, we can specify the width of the text box…the same way we can with conventional MText.…Now I can control the wrap of the text…with greater ease than I could before.…Another tip that is certainly not new but is very useful,…if you ever delete the actual dimension value…of the dimension, meaning it's been completely overridden,…
