Chapter 15. Text Annotation > Defining Text Styles

Defining Text Styles

A text style is a named group of settings that controls the appearance of text in a drawing. If you define several text styles, you can quickly select the text style you need for a particular text object, thereby automatically assigning such properties as font type and text height. By creating and using text styles, you can easily control the way your text looks.

The default text style (the only defined style) in the templates ACAD.DWT and ACADISO.DWT is named STANDARD. You can, however, define as many text styles as you want in a drawing (each of the other template files provided with AutoCAD has several predefined styles). Text styles are defined and modified with the STYLE command, which you issue by choosing Text Style from the Format menu. Figure 15.7 shows the Text Style dialog box. The various settings within the Text Style dialog box are explained in more detail in the following sections.
