Modifying text styles

A new text style is initially assigned default values for height, width factor, oblique angle, and other characteristics. You can change these values for both new and existing text styles. You can also change the font assigned to the text style. If you change the font or orientation properties of a text style assigned to text previously inserted in the drawing, all text using that style is regenerated to reflect the changes. Oblique angle and height, if specified, are given by the style definition when text is created, but are not updated for existing text when the style is changed.

A fixed text height value of 0 allows you to specify the text height at the time you insert text into the drawing. Any other value sets height of the text to that value; the program does not prompt for the text height when you insert text into the drawing. The width factor determines the horizontal scaling of text. A value less than 1 compresses the text (for example, 0.75 compresses the text 25 percent); a value greater than 1 expands the text (for example, 1.50 expands the text 50 percent). The oblique angle determines the forward or backward slant of text as an angle offset from 90 degrees. Negative values slant text to the left; positive values slant text to the right.

To modify a text style

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Explore Text Styles.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Explore Text Styles tool ().
    • Type expfonts, and then press Enter.
  2. Select the text characteristic of a style that you want to modify.
  3. The text characteristic either toggles its value or a dialog box appears, allowing you to make the modifications you want.
  4. To complete the command, close the progeCAD Explorer window.
