text correct

Post by amy » Thu Jul 21, 2005 7:01 am

In Microsurvey 2002 there is a command called Text Correct which allows you to pick one or more text objects and gives you the option to change the Font, Text Height, Insertion Angle, Width Factor, and Slant Angle.

Is there any commands like this in MSCAD 2005? The only thing I can find is Edit text which gives you a Entity Properties and it has no text slant option and you can only choose one text object at a time.

Help me!

Modify menu -> Properties - this command allows you to window (select them one at a time) many text entities and edit them all at the same time.

The proerties command is ENTPROP and can be set to an alias if you wish. Go to the CadTools menu -> Customize, alias tab - and configure it as you desire.
