How to use TextBuilder OnFace/OnCurve set text position?

Hi,

 

I'm using Features.TextBuilder to create Text curve with the type of OnFace/OnCurve along a circle. How to set the text position to be inside/outside the circle?

 

Thanks,

You can use the {textBuilder}.FrameOnPath.Offset.RightHandSide and the {textBuilder}.FrameOnPath.IsApexReversed to control the side of the curve that the text appears on and the distance away from the curve.

I tried in NX8.5 and NX10:
create text on two sides of a cylinder and both set FrameOnPath.IsApexReversed = false, but on top round side the text is created inside the circle, on the bottom it's outside the circle.

So what's the exact rule of TextBuilder to set the inside/outside of text?

Thanks.
