8.4 Multiple Line Text


In many cases, the drawings require no more than one or two descriptive words. In some cases, however, the necessary notes may be of two or more paragraphs. So, the use of line text is absolutely inoperative. Instead we use multi-line text. This option is activated with the corresponding button that can be found both in the "Text" group of the "Annotate" tab, and in the "Annotation" group of the "Start" tab. It has, of course, an associated command, it is "Textom". Once active, the command requests that we draw on the screen the window that will delimit the multi-line text, which creates, as it were, the space of a small word processor. An idea that is reinforced if we activate the toolbar that is used to format the text, which, in turn, is matched in functions with the contextual eyebrow that appears on the ribbon.

The use of the "Multiple Line Editor" is very simple and similar to editing in any word processor, which are very well known, so it is up to the reader to practice with these tools. Don't forget that the "Text format" bar has a drop-down menu with additional options. It should also be said that to edit a multi-line text object we use the same command as for the texts of a line (Ddedic), we can also double-click on the text object, the difference is that in this case the editor is opened which we present here, as well as the contextual tab "Text Editor" on the ribbon. Finally, if your multi-line text object is made up of several paragraphs, you must set its parameters (such as indentations, line spacing, and justification), through the dialog box of the same name.
