Is there a way to adjust the margin in a text box in Layout? I want the text to be spaced with a small margin from the text box edge. While I can use the space bar to accomplish this, when the text wraps, it is restive of my placing a space there.
In most word processing programs you can easily adjust margins, but Layout is hopelessly lost in some archaic methodology.
I would think they would incorporate a text editor in the tray, because importing rtf text is limited, in my non-vast experience. I find it awkward using the text tool, compared to using Word or Word Perfect. I think this is an area that needs improvement.
Maybe it’s a bit easier to get the results you want by overlaying a ‘text box’ on top of a slightly larger drawn in rectangle.
The Rectangle can carry the outline, and provide the padding/margins… and the text box can just function in the simplified way that it does.
Grouping them both together, keeps everything in place… and once done… you can copy/paste existing text/rectangle objects into other places by only having to edit the text, rather than rebuild the combination for each additional instance.
+1 for this feature! Layout needs a text box margin.
Another workaround,which only works if you are not using partially transparent text boxes is to apply a stroke of 10 or 15 pt to the text box. Strokes this large are not given as an option in the dropdown, you have type them in.
I really need this feature.
Plus, when export LayOut to DWG/DWF, table will be export to “Standard” style in AutoCAD.
But only “Horizontal cell margin” of cells can update by customise Table Style. “Vertical cell margin” default = 0 and can not change globally by Table Style.
