Lesson 34 | Creating Single Line Text

This lesson describes how to use the Text command to create single line text in your drawings. With Single line text, each line of text or textual object that is created can be edited independently. This distinguishes single line text from multiline text created with the Mtext command, because a single Mtext object can contain multiple lines of text.

Where Mtext is very robust and feature rich, single line text enables you to quickly create and locate small text objects. The most common use for single line text is to place a number or letter inside a circle.

In the following illustration, single line text of varying heights, justification, and rotation angle is used in a title block.
