Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Text styles, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Narrator] So we're staying,…in our good old 03_UsingText.dwg file,…for this chapter,…and we're still looking at our text effectively,…in our drawings to annotate effectively in AutoCAD.…So we've already looked at the two different types of text.…So over here, we have single line text.…If I hover over that, you can see it says text.…If I hover over this one here,…you can see it's Mtext, multi-line text.…Now, obviously when we've placed those two bits of text,…we've utilized a specific text style.…
Now, text styles are very, very useful.…You can tweak your text style,…you can use different fonts,…italic, regular, bold, and so on.…Now be aware that in the Text Styles,…there's two different types of fonts.…I'm going to show you both of those,…and then we're going to select a truetype font,…to make that text just look a little bit funkier.…So, let's go into the Text Style dialog box.…Now, as before, I can do it from the Home tab.…In the Annotation panel, click on the fly-out arrow,…and there's the icon there for Text Style,…
