Using the TEXT command


The TEXT command was AutoCAD’s original command for creating text. DTEXT was an update, showing the characters on your screen as you typed. However, the TEXT command was still used for customizing script files and menus (see Chapters 30 and 33) and in AutoLISP routines (see Chapters 34 and 35).


In AutoCAD 2000, DTEXT and TEXT worked identically in a drawing, both prompting you for additional lines of text until you pressed Enter. As of Release 2000i, you can now type -text on the command line to get the pre-2000 TEXT behavior, which ends the command after one line of text.


Both the DTEXT and the TEXT commands end after one line of text when used in script files, menus, or AutoLISP routines.

Editing single-line text


As with any drawing object, the need often arises to edit your text. You have two ways to edit single-line text.


You can use the DDEDIT command. Choose Modify О Objects О Text О Edit. At the Select an annotation object or [Undo]: prompt, select any text. Remember that each line of text created with DTEXT or TEXT is a separate object. AutoCAD opens the Edit Text dialog box with your text highlighted in an edit box, as shown in Figure 13-7. You can start typing to completely replace the text or click where you want to change part of the text and use standard Windows techniques to edit the text. Click OK or press Enter to make the changes and return to your drawing.
