The drawing used in the following Step-by-Step exercise on editing text, ab!3-b.dwg, is in the Drawings folder of the AutoCAD 2002 Bible CD-ROM.

Step-by-Step: Editing Text


1.    Open ab13-b.dwg from your CD-ROM.


2.    Save the file as ab13-2.dwg in your AutoCAD Bible folder. This is an air and vacuum release valve, as shown in Figure 13-9.


3.    Double-click the text 1/2″ PIPING. The Edit Text dialog box opens. Highlight the text 1/2 and type 3/8. Click OK. AutoCAD changes the text.


Choose Properties from the Standard toolbar. Click Quick Select in the Properties window. In the Quick Select dialog box, choose Text from the Object type drop-down list. In the Operator drop-down list, choose Select All. Click OK. AutoCAD selects all the text objects in the drawing.


5. Choose Layer. From the Layer drop-down list, choose TEXT. Choose Color. From the Color drop-down list, choose ByLayer. All text is now on the TEXT layer using the ByLayer color. Press Esc to remove the grips and see the result.


6.    Select the text at the bottom of the drawing that says, “N.T.S.” From the grips you can tell that it has a middle left justification. Choose Modify О Object О Text О Justify (or type justifytext J on the command line). At the prompt, type bc J.


AutoCAD ends the command. If you wish, select the text again to see that the insertion point grip is now at the bottom center of the text.
