Label (Box Label)

Label creates a text box with a directional line. This is useful to create a label pointing to any location.

  1. To insert a label, select Create > Text > Label.
  2. Now start typing in the field. You can enter one or more lines of text; just press Enter to start a new line.
  3. When you have finished, click OK.
  4. Now click a point on the screen where you want to locate the text. This point now becomes the current alignment point, and the Text item is justified both horizontally and vertically about this point.
  5. If needed, enter a second point to rotate the Text item. Else press Enter.

To edit Box Label text select the text and use the Text tab in either Properties (Home > Selection) or the local Properties command (right-click on the item to open this).
