DraftSight: Case by Case

Visit DraftSight.com to explore DraftSight 2019 and learn how you can experience the freedom to do more with a better 2D drafting and 3D design experience.

Being new to CAD drawing, I’m a big fan of anything that gives my drafts a more professional and polished presence. When I started inserting text on a regular basis into my DraftSight drawings, I often felt as though my notes stuck out or didn’t align in an aesthetically pleasing manner. I knew I needed to explore my editing options, and luckily, I found a few features that make my text appear uniform and neat.

One way to give your text a more polished feel is to make it all uppercase. DraftSight makes changing the case of your writing super easy – just highlight the designated text, press change case, and choose whether you want upper or lower.

You can also do this through the Toolbar, which should pop up when editing your text. If not, simply right click, go to Editor Settings, and press Show Toolbar. Once your text is highlighted, click the “A” icon to make your text uppercase.

Another great way to enhance your text is through the Justification feature located in the Toolbar, which perfectly aligns writing to your liking. I find this feature especially convenient, because it adjusts the content of my notes into a set position, making them appear organized and consistent.

Lastly, we could all use a second set of eyes when it comes to editing written work, and I’m no different. Thankfully, DraftSight has us covered with its spell check icon located under the Annotate tab in the customizable ribbon.

I hope this post encourages you to explore DraftSight’s text editing features and improves the execution of your finished work!
