AutoCAD: How to place text aligned to an arc

Let's suppose that we have a text, that we want to place aligned on an arc. It works almost like Corel Draw does, I'm using AutoCAD 2009 although the command is older than Almeida with his madness but I bring it after seeing several inquiries in forums and Yahoo Answers.

1. Arctext command

It is the same as ArcAlignedText

autocad 2009 command text

2. We select the bow

3. We indicate the characteristics of the text

  • on the bow, down etc.
  • Left, right, or right aligned
  • The font type
  • Height of text
  • Width factor
  • Offset over text or end
  • And of course, place the text we want; in this case I am placing Geofumadas

4. Ready

autocad 2009 command text

The text can be edited, by applying the same command and touching it, or by opening the properties panel.

It is there, in the Readme first : )

  1. I have the 2012 autocad installed on my computer but after the test time has expired, how can I activate it again?

  2. Sorry but I added the file acetmain.cui and the Ribbon Express Tools was added, this is the command button arctext but when I run it says that there is no command. What will it lack?

  3. I have done 2 autocad courses (2006 and 2008) and none of them had taught me this command and in my opinion it is very useful ... Thank you very much. I did not have many problems because to make personal configurations one has to play with the heights and everything and I already got my configuration and how to make new ones in the placement of text in arc ... If you have other commands we would greatly appreciate all of us who visited these sites for keep learning from this complex but useful program like AUTOCAD ... Greetings

  4. Hello thanks for the answer I have the 2009, the problem was that I discovered that from the 2007 autocad the EXPRESS TOOLS (tab where the Arctext command is located) is no longer in the upper tabs, then you have to download a separate file called «acetmain .cui »and then install it and ready you restart the autocad and you get a new tab that is obviously the EXPRESS TOOLS.
    Thank you very much for replying so soon.
