Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Text, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Teacher] So now that we've got…our text layer all set up in our AutoCAD drawing,…and it's the current drafting layer,…as we did in the previous video,…we can now start looking at placing…some regular good old fashioned…single line text on our AutoCAD drawing.…Now all I'm going to do here is…I'm going to put the words typical section…underneath this little view that we've got here…with the dimensions.…So I'm just going to do a little bit…of panning there just to get it…roughly central in the drawing area.…Now we know that text is the current drafting layer.…
We set it up in the previous video,…we're still in the same drawing,…the 03_UsingText.dwg file.…Always do that quick sanity check.…Layer panel and just make sure…that it is the text layer.…'Cause there's nothing more annoying…than setting up all your text…on the wrong layer and then having…to go in and change the properties…of all the text to a different layer later.…Just do that one little sanity check.…It's always good.…So, we now need to set up some single line text.…
