Placing Text

Not applicable
Is is possible to define where text box will be placed with the
"dimension" tool? I am making an instrument panel of sorts and I would
like to be able to place text more accurately than the mouse will allow.
I've searched through the help file and can't find anything.

Re: Placing Text

I have not found a way to place or manipulate text boxes with any precision. ( A
much needed enhancement in my opinion)
I sometimes use a block that contains either plain text or a text label.
The block can be placed or moved with it's origin.
Attached is an example of a block with a block label. Try dragging the block called
text into the workspace. When placed, you will be prompted to enter the text and
you can change the justification as well.
Changing the value of the 1.000 dimension will move the text.
