Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Text align, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Narrator] Another really neat tool…when you're using text effectively in your drawings…is the text align justification…for your single line text.…Now we've done single line text, multi-line text.…We've done the text styles.…I'm going to do this alignment justification…using a piece of single line text.…So, you should have your current layer set to text.…You should have your object snaps on…down here on the status bar.…And we should be using, obviously,…everything that we've set previously.…So if you've saved the drawing…and just moved onto the next video,…you should be fine.…
But just check your layers here.…Make sure that you're on the text layer.…Make sure that your object snaps are on.…And also make sure you're using the right text style as well…which is our Lynda1 text style that we set…in previous videos.…Now, I'm going to go to the Home tab on the ribbon,…go to the Annotation panel here…and click on the Text, pull down…and select Single Line text.…I'm then going to right-click,…go to Justify and select Align.…
