Chapter 15. Text Annotation > Looking at Additional Text Options

Looking at Additional Text Options

The following sections cover several optional text handling features that may prove useful to you. These features will enable you to speed up the display of text, handle missing font files, and insert text files into the current drawing.

Enabling the Quick Text Display

When AutoCAD opens or regenerates a drawing, if the drawing contains numerous text objects, it may take quite some time to complete the regeneration process, especially if the text is drawn with complex fonts. If you want to speed up the regeneration of the drawing and you do not need to actually see the existing text, enable the Quick Text mode. To enable the Quick Text mode, access the Display tab of the Options dialog box and select the Show Text Boundary Frame Only check box. When Quick Text is enabled, text and mtext objects are displayed as simple rectangles that contain no characters. If you enable Quick Text mode after opening a drawing, issue the REGEN command to redisplay the text as empty rectangles.
