Outline Text (Advanced text)

To enable Outline Text, navigate to File > Options > Drawing and Printing. Under the Map Drawing Engine folder tick the Advanced checkbox.

Outline Text can be applied to all categories of Cadcorp SIS Desktop Text Items:

Point Text

Box Text

Box Label

Line Text

An important difference between Cadcorp SIS Desktop Simple text and Outline Text is with simple text, the characters are drawn using the set Pen whereas Outline Text uses a selected Brush to draw the characters and a selected Pen to draw the outline.

Multi-level pens can be used for the Outline of the text.

Outline Text can also be defined within the Feature Table editing dialog.
