Importing Text

You can create a text file using a word processing, text editing, or other type of application and then import the contents of the text file into a model.

Note: The file can include key-in strings to set text attributes, such as the font, text size, and line spacing. Each key-in string must follow a period (“.”) that begins a line. One key-in string is allowed per line. All text following a key-in string is placed with the specified attribute. Other text placement controls can be included, such as INDENT # indents by the specified number of columns and NEWGG begins a new graphic group.

The Include Text File dialog is used to select a text file containing text to place in the design file. This lets you use a text editor or word processor to enter lengthy text that is to be placed in the design. The Include Text File dialog controls are analogous to those in the Open dialog. Once you specify a file and click OK, the text in the selected text file displays dynamically. Entering a data point in the design positions the text. The text is placed as a text node and the data point positions the text node origin.
