I try to add one textbox to on my drawing page. I selected Text command in Annotation menu. I put some text in dialog box. But when i try to show textbox then this button inactive. In 2011 release, when i need, i click right mouse button on text. And o selected textbox. Then i can set text box to other position with dimension.


Now, on right click, dont have text box choice and in text dialog box, textbox icon is inactive.


Do you have any solution for this?


Thank you

I'm only on 2010, but as far as I know this button has always been inactive for text placed directly on a drawing sheet.  To be able to get the text box, the text would need to be placed in a sketch(can be either a sketch on the drawing, including the definitions sketch for a symbol, or a part sketch).
