xml text

N/A

Dear friends,
I have a doubt in using the XML text object. I have used XML object
toolkit to display text in the form of display boards in my drawings. i have used
only text element in the toolkit and placed it suitably on the walls, such that
the text is visible in the front view. I am not able to see the XML text in the
plan view, eventhough i have selected 2D& 3D viewable settings in the object tool
kit while creating it. When i rotate the drawing, XML text is visible.
The purpose i need the XML Text in the plan view, is to make easier
for editing. Otherwise whenever i want to change the text, i need to rotate the
drawing and load XML object in the toolkit.
Please find the attached snapshot,
Gowri Shankar.

Re: xml text

Even though you have the options to display the text in 2d and 3d, the text will
not display in 2d as you have oriented it along either the x or y axis.
One easy option is to create 2 text controls where the text in the second text control
is exactly the same as the text in the first text control.
Attached is an sample file that shows how this can be done.
