Insert Non-Rotating Text

The Insert Non-Rotating Text command is used to create text that can be included in a custom block that will not rotate when the block is rotated.

Normal AutoCAD text rotates when a block is rotated. If a block is rotated 180 degrees, the text will appear upside-down.

Text created using this command will always be displayed at angle 0. When the block is rotated, the text is rotated back to 0. This rotation is accomplished by defining an attribute with a center justification.

To insert non-rotating text on the current drawing, go to

DM Electrical->Customization->Block Creation->Insert Non-Rotating Text

You will be prompted to identify where the non-rotating text is to be inserted on the drawing.

Insertion point for non-rotating text:

Specify the point on the drawing where the non-rotating text is to be inserted. The point you select will be the center point for the inserted text. You will then be prompted to specify the text.

Text value:

Enter the text value to be inserted at the command line. You will then be prompted to specify the height of the text.

Text height:

Enter the text height at the command line. The text will be inserted on the drawing.

Once the text is inserted, you can modify it using standard AutoCAD commands to make it look right.

You will want to select the text when choosing entities to create a block.
