Dimensions and Annotations

^Although AutoCAD provides an environment that allows users to make detailed and precise drawings, it's often necessary for users to incorporate further information. A typical user will add textual annotations and measurement annotations (dimensions) to a drawing for manufacturing, modeling, engineering, mapping, and surveying purposes and to help clarify design intent. AutoCAD VBA provides a number of methods to help users create annotations and dimensions that they normally create through the AutoCAD application interface.

In this chapter you'll learn how to create dimensions and annotations and add them to your drawings. You'll also see how to set up and use different text and dimension styles.
