ProgeSOFT IntelliCAD – Working with text fonts and styles

July 25th, 2005 No comments

When you add text to a drawing, it is created using the current text style.
The text style determines the font, size, angle, orientation, and other text characteristics. Every drawing has at least one text style, named Standard, which initially uses the txt font.
You cannot delete the Standard style, but you can rename it or modify it. For example, you can change the font or the oblique angle applied to the font.
You also can use an unlimited number of additional text styles in your drawing. From the IntelliCAD Explorer, you can directly edit any setting associated with a text style by using the single-click editing method to change the setting.

To display the IntelliCAD Explorer Text Styles element

Do one of the following:
  • Choose Settings > Explore Text Styles.
  • Choose Tools > IntelliCAD Explorer, and then click the Styles element.
  • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Text Styles tool.
  • Type expstyles and then press Enter.

2 Do one of the following:
  • Select the linetype, and then choose Edit > Rename.

     type the new name.
  • Right-click the linetype name you want to change, and
     from the shortcut menu, select Rename.

To change a linetype definition

1 Do one of the following:
  • Choose Settings > Explore Linetypes.
  • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Linetypes tool.
  • Type expltypes and then press Enter.

   number draws a solid line segment for the specified
   number of drawing units. A negative number creates a gap
   for the specified number of drawing units. A zero creates
   a dot.
5 To complete the command and return to your drawing,
   close the Linetypes dialog box and the IntelliCAD Explorer
   window.

NOTE You cannot rename the CONTINUOUS, BYBLOCK, or BYLAYER linetypes.
