How to create text using single line text and multiline text

How to Enter Text in AutoCAD

 

This video will Learn About How to Enter Text in AutoCAD.

There are two methods to Create/Enter text in AutoCAD: Single-line text and the Second is Multi-line text.

Firstly we are going to see that how we can write Single line text. The shortcut key for using this command is the 'D+T+Enter' key.
Now we will first select the starting point from where we want to write the text, and after that, enter the height of the text and enter the text's rotation angle as per our choice. After that, we can smoothly write the text which we want.

After that, we will notice that we have many different options in our command prompt. We will look at them one by one.

The first option is Left. We will first select one starting point and then provide it with the height and rotation angle of the text we will write. In this, the text which we will write will be left-aligned.

The second option is Centre. We will first select one starting point and then provide it with the height and rotation angle of the text we will write. The text we will write will be Center-aligned from the point which we marked as a starting point.

The third option is Right. We will first select one starting point and then provide it with the height and rotation angle of the text we will write. The text we will write will be utterly right-aligned from the moment we marked it as a starting point.

The next option is Middle. In this, it will write the text in the Middle regarding the starting point we selected.
The next option is to Align. We will ask to mark the starting and ending point, and the text we entered will be limited inside this point only.

Similarly, we have another Fit option. We will then ask to mark the starting and ending point and provide it with the height. In this case, the text's width will be variable; it will get adjusted automatically as we keep on adding text.

FAQs

  • In AutoCAD, there are two ways to convert single line text to multiline text. The first way is by using the Text command. To do this, you can type in your text and then use the TEXTE command. This will create a new layer for the text and allow you to edit it as needed.
  • The second way is by using the Text Editor. To do this, you can type in your text and then use the Edit Text Editor option from the right-click menu. This will open a new window with your text inside of it where you can edit it as needed.

  • Text and Mtext are very similar, but they have a few key differences: Text annotations are created with the TEXT command, while Mtext annotations are created with the MTEXT command. Text annotations are typically limited to one line, while Mtext annotations can be up to 255 lines long.
  • Mtext annotations automatically adjust their size as the drawing scale changes, while text does not automatically adjust its size as the drawing scales changes."

Text is used to convey information in AutoCAD. It can be used to label objects, specify units of measurement, and provide instructions for the user. Text is one of the most important elements in AutoCAD. You will use text extensively when making drawings or when creating a drawing file. Text helps you communicate your ideas to other people who are viewing your drawings or working with them.

Mtext is a text editor that allows users to create and edit text in a browser. It is an open-source software which enables users to create and edit text in a browser:

  • Some of the benefits of using mtext are:
  • It is free, open-source software for creating and editing text in a browser.
