Add Text to Drawings

Text conveys important information in your drawing. Use text for title blocks, to label parts of the drawing, to give specifications, or to make annotations.

AutoCAD provides various ways to create text. For short, simple entries, use line text. For longer entries with internal formatting, use multiline text (mtext). 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.

For more information about working with text, see “Create Text” in the User's Guide.
