Setting the line text alignment

When you create text, you can set the text alignment before you specify the insertion point. You set the alignment by choosing it in the prompt box. By default, text is left justified. You can align text at the left, center, or right and at the top, middle, or baseline of the text or at the bottom of descending letters.


  1. Top left
  2. Middle left
  3. Left
  4. Bottom left
  5. Center
  6. Bottom center
  7. Bottom right
  8. Baseline
  9. Right
  10. Middle right
  11. Top right
  12. Middle
  13. Middle center
  14. Top center

You can also align text so that it fits or aligns between two points. The Align option creates text that scales up or down while maintaining a constant height/width ratio; the Fit option expands or compresses the text to fit between the two points.



Text aligned between two points maintains a constant height/width ratio.

Text fit between two points expands or compresses to fit.

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Text.
    • On the Draw 2D toolbar, click the Text tool ().
