CHAPTER 10 Creating and Editing Text

Text is an essential part of every drawing. You use the written word to clarify graphical depictions and delineate your design intent with specific language. It’s good to remember that drawings can be used as part of legal construction documents, and you typically need to clarify your design intent with text that appears on the drawings themselves. In this chapter, you’ll learn how to style text, how to write both lines and paragraphs of text using specialized commands, and how to edit existing text.
