Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Modify Text, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Teacher] So we're staying in the 03_Text.dwg file,…and we're looking at the text panel…in the Express Tools tab on the AutoCAD ribbon.…What we're going to look at now is the…Modify Text tools available to us here…on the Modify Text flyout.…Now, there's lots of different tools here,…and all of them work really well.…Explode is one of those wonderful weird ones though…because it explodes the text into polylines…which is kind of strange, but then again,…you might need this at some point,…especially if you're doing some graphic…sort of design type work in AutoCAD.…
So, I go to Explode,…I select the Modify Text text like so,…and I press Enter to confirm.…And if I zoom in real close now,…you can see look, that's all been…broken down into it's respective polylines.…It's kind of neat how it works actually,…'cause that's all polylined now,…and I could hatch those polylines…and create some really quirky text.…What I'm going to do now, just jump up to Undo,…Undo a couple of times so that…we can go back to the next Modify Text tool…
