Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Multiline text, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Announcer] So we're staying in our 03_UsingText.dwg file,…we're going to look at the other type of text now,…available to you in AutoCAD,…which is multiline text or M text.…Now the previous video we used the good old text command,…the single line text command.…And we placed the text underneath the drawing there,…saying Typical Section.…Now we're going to use the same text style…and the same text layer.…Now it may be that you want to use a separate layer…for your multiline text as compared…to your single line text.…
It's entirely up to you.…Personally I just used a good old fashioned text layer…in all the drawings I used to draw when I was in industry.…So for example in the layers panel here,…I'm using that good old text layer there…and making sure it's the current drafting layer,…which it is.…So that text layers all set up and ready to go.…Now I want to make sure that I'm using…the standard text style.…And again I can go to the Annotation panel on the Home tab.…Go into the Text Style icon here,…or I could use the Annotate tab on the ribbon…
