Subject: Understanding text styles

When you add text to a drawing, it is created using the current text style. The text style determines the font, size, angle, orientation, if the text is annotative by default, and other text characteristics.  

Every drawing has at least one text style, named Standard, which initially uses the Arial font. You cannot delete the Standard style, but you can rename it or modify it. For example, you can change the font or the oblique angle applied to the font. You also can use an unlimited number of additional text styles in your drawing.    

From the Explorer, you can directly edit any setting associated with a text style by using the single-click editing method to change the setting.
