Text Formatting Toolbar

Text Formatting Toolbar

Formats the text of the current multiline text object.

Controls the text style for a multiline text object and character and paragraph formatting
for selected text.

NOTE: Text that you paste from other word processing applications such as Microsoft Word
will retain most of its formatting. With the options in Paste Special, you can strip
out paragraph formatting such as paragraph-based alignment or character formatting
from the pasted text.

List of Options


Applies a text style to the multiline text object. The current style is saved in the
TEXTSTYLE system variable.

Character formatting for font, height, and bold or italic attributes is overridden
if you apply a new style to an existing multiline text object. Stacking, underlining,
and color attributes are retained in characters to which a new style is applied.

Styles that have backward or upside-down effects are not applied. If a style defined
with a vertical effect is applied to an SHX font, the text is displayed horizontally
in the In-Place Text Editor.


Specifies a font for new text or changes the font of selected text. TrueType fonts
are listed by font family name. Compiled shape (SHX) fonts are listed by the name
of the file in which the fonts are stored. Custom fonts and third-party fonts are
displayed in the editor with Autodesk -supplied proxy fonts.

A sample drawing (TrueType.dwg) showing each font is provided in the sample directory.


Turns Annotative on or off for the current text object.

Text Height

Sets the character height in drawing units for new text or changes the height of selected
text. If the current text style has no fixed height, the text height is the value
stored in the TEXTSIZE system variable. A multiline text object can contain characters
of various heights.


Turns bold formatting on and off for new or selected text. This option is available
only for characters using TrueType fonts.


Turns italic formatting on and off for new or selected text. This option is available
only for characters using TrueType fonts.

Turns strikethrough formatting on and off for new or selected text.

Turns underlining on and off for new or selected text.


Turns overline on and off for new or selected text.

Match Text Formatting
Applies the formatting of selected text to target text.

Undoes actions in the In-Place Text Editor, including changes to either text content
or text formatting.


Redoes actions in the In-Place Text Editor, including changes to either text content
or text formatting.


Creates stacked text, for example, fractions, if the selected text contains stack
characters. Also, unstacks text if stacked text is selected. When the stack characters,
carat (^), forward slash (/), and pound sign (#), are used, the text to the left of
the stack character is stacked on top of the text to the right.

By default, text that contains a carat converts to left-justified tolerance values.
Text that contains the forward slash converts to center-justified fractional numbers;
the slash is converted to a horizontal bar the length of the longer text string. Text
that contains the pound sign converts to a fraction separated by a diagonal bar the
height of the two text strings. The characters above the diagonal fraction bar are
bottom-right aligned; the characters beneath the diagonal bar are top-left aligned.

Text Color

Specifies a color for new text or changes the color of selected text.

You can assign text the color associated with the layer it is on (BYLAYER) or the
color of the block it is contained in (BYBLOCK). You can also select one of the colors
in the color list or click Other to open the Select Color dialog box.


Displays a ruler at the top of the editor. Drag the arrows at the end of the ruler
to change the width of the text object. Also displays height and column grips when
column mode is active.

You can also select tabs from the ruler. Clicking the Tab Selection button changes
tab styles from left, center, right, and decimal. Once you make your selection, you
adjust the corresponding tab in the ruler or in the Paragraph dialog box.


Closes the editor and saves any changes that you made.


Displays a list of additional text options. See the topic, Additional Text Options.


Displays the column flyout menu, which provides three column options: No Columns,
Static Columns, and Dynamic columns. See the topic, Columns Menu.

Text Justification

Displays the text justification menu with nine alignment options available.


Displays the Paragraph dialog box. See the topic Paragraph Dialog Box for a list of
the options.

Left, Center, Right, Justified and Distributed

Sets the justification and alignment for the left, center, or right text boundaries
of the current or selected paragraph. Spaces entered at the end of a line are included
and affect the justification of a line.

Line Spacing

Displays suggested line spacing options or the Paragraph dialog box. Line spacing
is set in the current or selected paragraph.


  • Line spacing is the distance between the bottom of the upper line and the top of the
    lower line of text in a multiple line paragraph.
  • Not all of the new options for paragraph and paragraph line spacing are supported
    in AutoCAD 2007 and previous releases.


Displays the bullet and numbering menu.

Displays options for creating lists. (Not available for table cells.) The list is
indented to align with the first selected paragraph.

  • Off: When selected, removes letters, numbers, and bullets from selected text that has
    list formatting applied. Indentation is not changed.
  • Lettered: Applies list formatting that uses letters with periods for the items in the list.
    If the list has more items than the alphabet has letters, the sequence continues by
    using double letters.
  • Numbered: Applies list formatting that uses numbers with periods for the items in the list.
  • Bulleted: Applies list formatting that uses bullets for the items in the list.
  • Restart: Starts a new letter or number sequence in list formatting. If the selected items
    are in the middle of a list, unselected items below them also become part of the new
  • Continue: Adds the selected paragraphs to the last list above and continues the sequence. If
    list items rather than paragraphs are selected, unselected items below the selected
    items continue the sequence.
  • Allow Auto-list: Applies list formatting as you type. The following characters can be used as punctuation
    after letters and numbers and cannot be used as bullets: period (.), comma (,), close
    parenthesis ()), close angle bracket (), close square bracket (]), and close curly
    bracket (}).
  • Use Tab Delimiter Only: Limits the Allow Auto-list and Allow Bullets and Lists options. List formatting is
    applied to text only when the space after the letter, number, or bullet character
    was created by Tab, not Space.
  • Allow Bullets and Lists: When this option is selected, list formatting is applied to all plain text in the
    multiline text object that looks like a list. Text that meets the following criteria
    is considered to be a list. The line begins with (1) one or more letters or numbers
    or a symbol, followed by (2) punctuation after a letter or number, (3) a space created
    by pressing Tab, and (4) some text before the line is ended by Enter or Shift+Enter.

    When you clear the check mark, any list formatting in the multiline text object is
    removed and the items are converted to plain text. Allow Auto-list is turned off,
    and all the Bullets and Lists options are unavailable except Allow Bullets and Lists.

Insert Field

Displays the Field dialog box, where you can select a field to insert in the text.


Changes the selected text to uppercase.


Changes the selected text to lowercase.


Turns selected text into superscript, slightly smaller text set above the line of

Turns selected superscript text to ordinary text.


Turns selected text into subscript, slightly smaller text set below the line of type.

Turns selected subscript text to ordinary text.


Inserts a symbol or a nonbreaking space at the cursor position. You can also insert
symbols manually. See Symbols and Special Characters.

Commonly used symbols are listed on the submenu, along with their control code or
Unicode string. Click Other to display the Character Map dialog box, which contains
the entire character set for each font available on your system. Select a character
and click Select to place it in the Characters to Copy box. When you have selected
all the characters that you want to use, click Copy to close the dialog box. In the
editor, right-click and click Paste.

Symbols are not supported in vertical text.

Oblique Angle

Determines the forward or backward slant of the text. The angle represents the offset
from 90 degrees. Entering a value between -85 and 85 makes the text oblique. A positive
obliquing angle slants text to the right. A negative obliquing angle slants text to
the left.


Decreases or increases the space between the selected characters. The 1.0 setting
is normal spacing. Set to more than 1.0 to increase spacing, and set to less than
1.0 to decrease spacing.

Width Factor

Widens or narrows the selected characters. The 1.0 setting represents the normal width
of the letter in this font. You can increase the width (for example, use a width factor
of 2 to double the width) or decrease the width (for example, use a width factor of
0.5 for half the width).
