See how to place and edit text elements to label the various portions of a drawing.
- [Instructor] The objective of this chapter…is to learn how to place and edit text elements.…Open the file for Chapter Two, Working With Text.dgn…and using View Groups, select the Place Text model.…There are two basic types of text elements,…a text element, and a text node element.…The difference between them is that…a text element is a single line of text…and a text node is multi-line piece of text, or a paragraph.…Both types of text elements are placed…using the Place Text command.…
Text nodes are automatically generated…when the Enter key is used in the Text Editor dialog.…You won't even know when you place one or the other.…It just happens.…The only thing you need to know about text nodes…is how to control the node display in the View window.…The display of this node is controlled…using the View Attributes dialog.…The View Attributes command is located…in the View Controls located at the top of each View window.…I will select the first button…from the View Controls to open the View Attributes dialog.…
Here, I can turn off the display for text nodes.…
