In this video, Shaun Bryant demonstrates how the single-line text justification is automatically inferred into MTEXT when using the TXT2MTXT command.
- [Instructor] We're staying in the…convert to MTEXT.dwg file,…and as you can see there,…we've still got all of the text…that we had in the previous video.…So you can see there's our group of MTEXT…that we've already created,…with the character codes.…Now what we're going to look at this time…is the justification of the single line text…when it gets converted to multi-line text.…So you'll notice I've got…a line of single line text here, justifying MTEXT.…And you can see when I hover over it,…it's just regular text on the text layer.…
Now select it, and you can see that it has…two different justification grips.…The left hand grip over here is the default one.…So when you create any piece of single line text…it always defaults to the left.…I've also got a right hand grip,…which indicates that the justification…of this particular bit of single line text…is to the right.…Now, the way to check that is, obviously,…to just right click when you've got it selected,…go down to Properties on the shortcut menu,…and you can see here, Justify Right,…
