Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Arc-Aligned Text, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Instructor] We're now in a new chapter of our AutoCAD…Express Tools workflow course.…And what we're going to look at now are the Text tools…on the Express Tools tab on the AutoCAD ribbon.…So we've got a new drawing set up for you.…You can see it at the top there, 03_Text.dwg.…And you can download that…from your lynda.com exercise files as usual.…Now you'll notice, it's a very boring little drawing.…We've got one little arc there…and we've got a number of bits of single-line text…all set up using the standard text style,…which is using the Arial font.…
Now, we're going to use each of those bits of text,…piece by piece, as we work through each video.…So if you want to, you can save the drawing…at the end of each video to save the changes…that you've made to this particular drawing.…So let's have a look first at Arc-Aligned text.…Let's zoom in on the arc, first of all.…Let's get in nice and tight…so that we can see what we're doing.…And I'm just going to get the arc sitting there,…down towards the bottom of the screen.…
