Problem Fitting Text in Title Block

505 Views, 3 Replies

Hello everybody.

I am trying to make a template with a title block in it and in that title block, I have an attribute where it takes in the title of the drawing and displays it in the corresponding section in the title block. My problem is that some of these drawings will have long titles. The problem is that I can get the text to have a definite width using the multiple line property, but It causes the text to vertically exceed its section instead of scaling the text size back. Is there a way to do this?


Thank you,

Can't you override the text width?

If by some odd chance my nattering was useful -- that's great, glad to help. But if it actually solved your issue, then please mark my solution as accepted :smileyhappy:

What about using "Fit Text" center justified or reduce the Width factor slightly on that string.

I would suggest using a single attribute set to "multiple lines" with a fixed width.  That way, it acts like a regulary MText object where it will automatically word-wrap itself
