How to snap to grid or element when placing text?

Creator

ST5: When drawing line, circle or other element, I can snap to grid or element keypoint, but not when placing text. This would be very convenient--any recommendation? Thanks!

I do not believe there is a way to do this aside from first placing it wherever, then using the Move command and after selecting the "Move From" point, the "Move To" point will then snap to the grid.

 

You might find that you just place all your text then use the Line Up Text tool to line everything up in batch.

Thanks Grundey. Is there a "best way" to suggest this capability for future release of the software?
Thanks.

Either call your VAR and put in an enhancement request, or if in North America you can contact Siemens PLM GTAC directly (http://support.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/gtac.shtml) and put in an enhancement request.
