Annotate

Post by plms » Wed Mar 19, 2003 6:56 am

Contours are not breaking when annotating. I had annotated previously on this drawing but now want to substantially increase the text size. Modifying text height works but looks a bit sloppy as annotates infringe the contour. What should I attempt. Thanks!

Contours

Sorry - Looks Like I missed this question.

If you have smoothed the contours then the annotation routine will not work correctly. You must always complete the annotation of contours before doing any smoothing.

If you have already smoothed the contours and need to unsmooth them then you can do this by going under the Modify menu -> Edit Polyline -> Decurve the polyline. This must be done one Polyline at a time so try to unsmooth only the ones required. Then label them and redo the smoothing, if desired.
