Working with Annotations

An annotation is simply explanatory text added to a drawing to clarify some aspect of that drawing. The AutoCAD objects you may use for this purpose are the Text and MText objects, and for blocks you may use the Attribute and AttributeReference objects (see Chapter 13 for more information). In addition, you can use the Tolerance object to add text, but it's more related to the dimension objects, so I cover it later in the "Adding Annotations" section.. The format and style of the text is controlled by the TextStyle object as well as a number of system variables. In this section you'll concentrate on the TextStyle object and how to set and use text styles.
