text class

Recommended Posts

I like the fact that a dim. string is placed automaticaly in a class and I'm looking for a script that will do the same with text..... I hate having to change the text after insertion.

HJ,

You should post this question in the VectorScript section of the message board. You may find an answer there much faster.

OR -- You can use Custom Tool/Attribute menu under the Organize menu to set up a script for the Text tool. In it, assign the attributes and the class you want to put the text in (create the class first). When you want to put in some text, simply click on the script to activate it, then click in the drawing to draw away. The text objects will be created using the assinged attributes and class settings specified above.

Nice find.

I didn't know it was a problem.

I am going to go ahead and bug list this as it is still that way in VW 10.0.1.

31016 is the Bug Number

A workaround would be to just use the 2d selection tool, or another tool and set the Custom Tool/Attribute up. Then just click on the text tool and draw away.

Katie,

I'm afraid that the Text tool is one of the few tools that is not available when using the Custom Tool/Attribute... command.

This doesn't mean you can't use the Custom Tool/Attribute to set the active class for the next text object or its font/attributes. It means it won't call the Text Tool.

I wonder if this is related with a VesctorScript trouble I had using CallTool()/SetTool() with the text tool... and I can't remember if I filled a bug report already.
