i was able to create text on an arc radius in 2008 autocad with express tools installed. i have not found express tools for 2009 & i can't find any help files explaining how to create arc align text in 2009.

Express tools are an option during the install.

I'm not positive of the steps needed, but I believe you can do a
repair or something in order to get them installed.

no. express tools are not available there like they were on 2008. express tools are not an option during the install or are they available through the add & remove software change.

My bad, I thought I was in the AutoCAD forum. Express tools is an
option for AutoCAD 2009 during the install, not sure about AutoCAD Mech
however.

Sorry about that!

When I installed our AMech 2009, Express Tools was still an install option. You had to go into the Config pages for AMech at the start and check the box for it.

I have not yet installed the upgrade to 2010, so I do not know if it is still an option there...

Please follow steps from the following link to install Express Tools. This is applicable for AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 too.
