You can create text in various ways. For short, simple entries, use single-line text. For longer entries with internal formatting, use multiline text (also called mtext). You can also create multiline text with leaders.
Although all entered text uses the current text style, which establishes the default font and format settings, you can use several methods to customize the text appearance. There are several tools that can change text scale and justification, find and replace text, and check for spelling errors.
Text that is included in a dimension or tolerance is created using the dimensioning commands.
