Subject: Creating a line of text

When you create single-line text, you end each line of text by pressing Enter. Each line of text is created as a separate entity that you can modify.

To create a line of text

   1   Do one of the following to choose Text ():           

   On the ribbon, choose Home > Text (in Annotation) or choose Annotate > Text (in Text).

   On the menu, choose Draw > Text.

   On the Draw toolbar, click the Text tool.

   Type text and then press Enter.    

   2   Specify the insertion point for the first character.    

   3   Specify the height of the text.

   4   Specify the text rotation angle.     

   5   Type the text, and then press Enter at the end of each new line.

   6   To complete the command, press Enter again.

If you’ve already created text, new text can appear immediately below the previous text.
Choose Insert > Text. When prompted for an insertion point, press Enter. The new text will keep the same height and rotation angle as the previous text.
