Re: Tips for text

GD&T

• Use parametric GD&T when you can, and try this if you want to create a custom note.

Type this as the text:

GD&T text example.PNG

And get this as the note:

• Notice that you type @[ before the symbol and then type @] after the symbol to create a box around it.

Re: Tips for text

Superscript

Type this as the text:

25 ft@+2@#

And get this as the note:

Notice that @+ goes before the text to be superscripted, and @# goes after.

Subscript

Type this as the text:

C@-6@#H@-12@#O@-6@#

And get this as the note:

Notice that @- goes before the text to be subscripted, and @# goes after.

Re: Tips for text

Multiple formats within single note

To edit the style of one section of a note, first click to select the entire note, then click again to select just the section you want to change. You can then RMB -> Text Style... and change size etc as required.

This works directly with separate lines within a note, but to change just one part within a line you must first separate that section by adding {1: and } around the relevant text:

{1:Large Text} Small Text

Separate Line

Then close the note editor and proceed as above.

Re: Tips for text

Hi Kevin...

The links didn't seem to work. I know what they're supposed to show... but they're not showing!

Re: Tips for text

What links?

Re: Tips for text

Superscript and subscript examples didn't pop up... and they didn't appear as graphics. Although in your previous message the GD&T stuff DID show properly.

Re: Tips for text

Now I see what you mean, the images are not linking to larger images. I'm not getting the options for Delte or Edit on that post (but, oddly, those options are available on the GD&T post) so I'll insert them here. Thanks Brian.

Re: Tips for text

Next you should cover other nifty tricks like overriding dimensions with special text, displaying dimension symbols (instead of values) for tabulated drawings, and methods to import true type fonts for use in drawings.

Oh yeah and also show how to do a superscript over top of a subscript (as if you're showing a limit or plus/minus dimension)!

I'd do it... but I'm lazy. And I'm behind on my presentation!

Re: Tips for text

In addition to KevinBradberry tip:

Add superscript first and then subscript.
