Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the template text, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut.
- [Instructor] Chapter 4_03, we're looking at adding … the template text, that's this stuff. … Now this is a combination of normal text … and then we've got these labels which are the auto text. … Okay, so I'll just run through the process … of creating, sort of, one or two of these … and then you can finish off. … I'll leave this there for you to look at. … If you've got access to the exercise files, … you can just investigate this if you want. … Otherwise, just sit tight and we'll be through this … in no time at all. … So to create the text, I'll just use the text tool … and then click somewhere and you've probably … got about 10 points loaded, doesn't matter. … We'll just type in Project Ref. … Okay, so type in Project Ref, … click away from it and select the text again … by using the select tool. … Use the space bar if you want. … That gets to the select tool as well. … So with the text selected, just change it to seven … and hit enter. … So that's going to give us a seven point font …
