•Text - the text characters
•X Start - X reference location
•Y Start - Y reference location
•Height - the height of the text
•Angle - the angle of the text in degrees
•Depth - the depth of the text
Each of the available justifications will locate the text relative to the X Start and Y Start. Example: Middle would align the text with the text centered around the X Start and Y Start location.
Convert Text to Geometry
This option will convert the text into complex polylines defined with lines and arcs. These polylines can be used for developing tooling paths. Also, this option can be used to develop Profile Operations that can then be pocketed. Use the Text Operation to make the polylines, then execute the Macro, use the resulting polylines as definitions to Profile Operations and delete the Text Operation.
Text styles can be defined in AutoCAD using the style command. Reference the AutoCAD documentation. These defined styles can be selected using the Available Styles button when defining your text style.
Viewing Text in the Viewer
Text defaults to a icon when rendered in the Viewer. There is a "Text On" option in the View menu of the Viewer. By selecting this option the Viewer will render the text as actual text instead of an icon.
