How do I make changes to text that already exists on my drawing?


In a Home Designer plan, when displayed in plan view, new text can be added or existing text can be edited.

To create and modify text

  1. From the menu select CAD> Text> Rich Text and click in your 2D floor plan view.

  2. Type or paste the desired text into the Text Field.

    If you do not type anything in the Text Field, a text object will not be created when you click outside of it.

  3. Highlight the text that you would like to change, then use the options to change the font, style and size of any portion of the text.

If you are unfamiliar with any of the options in this dialog for modifying your text, click on the Help button located at the bottom of the dialog to learn more about these features.
