How to create new text style and how to edit old text style

Text Style in AutoCAD


In this video, we will see how we can create a new text style and modify text style in AutoCAD.

We can enter the shortcut key of text style in the command prompt to use it. The shortcut key for using this option is the 'S+T+Enter' key.

When we use this, a dialogue box will open in front of us of Text Style. So from there, we can change the font name, font style, and size. And after that, we can click on 'New,' and create our new text style.

We will now select that style that we created and set it as the current text style by selecting the 'Set Current' option from that dialogue box, and at last, click Apply.

So now we will be able to write text in the textile, which we created manually. We can also write text in multiple lines.

Since we have not provided the text's height and rotation angle in that dialogue box, it is being asked in our command prompt, but we can ignore it and write text as per our choice.


  • Text style refers to the height of text in a drawing. It is also called Text height.
  • In Autocad, you can change the text style by going to Format -> Text Style -> Height.
  • You can set a height for all text, or just for new text that you type. The default height is 1/8".

The AutoCAD is a computer-aided design software that has been used for decades to create architectural designs. The software is mainly used for drafting and developing drawings, but it also has the ability to modify text styles. If you want to remove non-standard text styles from your AutoCAD, here are some steps you can take:

  • Go to the Text Style Manager window by clicking on the Tools menu and then selecting Text Style Manager.
  • Select the text style that you want to edit or delete by clicking on it in the list of styles.
  • Click on Delete Current Text Style button at the bottom of the window.

When you create a text style for a dimension in AutoCAD, you are telling AutoCAD how to display the dimension. This is done by specifying the font style, size, and color.

You can create a text style for dimensions in two ways:

  • You can use the Text Style Manager to create a new text style or modify an existing one.
  • You can also do so by selecting Create New Text Style from the Dimension Text Style drop-down list on the Formatting panel of the Text tab of Toolspace.
  • Once you have created or modified your text style, you need to assign it to all dimensions that are of that type by using either method mentioned above.

  • There are three steps to create a text style for a dimension in AutoCAD. The first step is to create the text style itself. The second step is to assign the text style to the dimension. And finally, you can select the dimension and apply it to your drawing.
  • The first step is to create the text style itself. You can do this by clicking on Text Style in the Properties Manager (left side of screen). The next thing you need to do is set up your desired font, height, width, and other settings for your text style (right side of screen). After that click on Create New Text Style and give it a name.

There are many different options available for text styles. The most popular ones are: italic, bold, underline, and strikethrough.
