Writing in the title block


#1

hi there
I’m learning layout and have a nice set of elevations created, now i want to write in the title block. My template is a arch d with the title block place vertically to the right, and any text i type there comes out horizontally, no option to rotate it…( i click on the section of the title block that i want to write in, and delete what is there then type)
???

Select the text and use the center grip to rotate.
Keep an eye on the Status Bar at the bottom of the UI for modifier keys and other tips.

hi GEO
i wasn’t able to do what you recommended on a consistent basis, and somewhat accidentally double clicked on the box, it turned horizontally, then i typed in my text and clicked on the screen next to it and it turned vertical again, bingo,
thanks
