symbols and linked text

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to set text linked to symbols to always be drawn horizontal i.e. if the symbol is rotated the text still reads left to right?

thanks

I'm sure there is a way to get this to happen when using VectorScript. The ID tool and other tools have right reading options in the OIP. I'm sure with some good grease and a vector script book it can be done.

You may want to post it at the VS forum section or by emailing vs_support@nemetschek.net.

It already exists. In VW preferences under Display check the button for "Adjust Flipped Text". Works great for us....

I've used the "Adjust Flipped Text" option, and I love it. However, while it will flip text on a mirrored symbol, or a 180? inserted symbol, and they look great, if the symbol is at an odd angle, say 33? or even 90? then the text will read left to right within the symbol, but at an angle with respect to the page.

Vectorscript, huh Katie? never tried that. sounds scary. I'll dip my toes in that water tentatively though. Wish me luck.

Thanks.

No, not even with VectorScript as long as we are talking about symbols. PIOs are an entirely different pot of tofu.
