Is there a way to get text to read vertically? I think I saw something in here related to it but cant find it. Is there a key I need to hold to rotate it? Thanks for any help!! Mark

Snip out of another thread titled "Dim String Placement" There's another adjustment you can make as well, to flip the dimension text to the other side. While holding down the "Shift" key on the keyboard, click on one of the dimension handles. A minor movement of the handle will flip the dim text to the other side of the dim line.

Mark,

Rotate text is on the wishlist for upcoming releases. One of the use cases that I've seen is to add text as a note on a vertically oriented dimension string. Is that similar to what you need?

Compared to VoloView the markup tools in Composer are a big minus I think. No Rotate text markup?
Also , In VV you can select and drag a markup while holding control to get a copy of that markup.
We have one use where this was a real bonus.
This isn't possible in Composer (I couldn't find it) and copy/pasted markups "leap" away from the originals location by some random distance. Is is possible to restore VV like behaviour for the markup copy?

Realize that Composer is in its first release. Volo had many. Composer will certainly be enhanced and refined as the development continues. Feedback like yours is very helpful in our efforts to decide what areas need attention, so much thanks!

Thanks, its gets a little tricky explaining that as Composer is touted as newer & better technology than Voloview. The mark-up and review interface + integration with CAD are much superior but the actual mark-up objects need to at least match VV3's. -- Regards, Robin Capper Email via contact at http://rcd.typepad.com "Jeffrey Klug (Autodesk, Inc.)" wrote in message news:4165a509$1_3@newsprd01... > Realize that Composer is in its first release.

FYI: The use is a little different to normal "drawing review". We have an ADT user placing retail fittings and several buyers/merchandise Volo users indicating their desired product allocation within the skeleton using text labels. Once they have done their thing (can be several iterations) the mark-up is imported back into ADT as text content not just used for revision review. The quick control-copy and ability to layout text at any orientation are essential for this. -- Regards, Robin Capper Email via contact at http://rcd.typepad.com "Ben Kopf" wrote in message news:4175303c$1_3@newsprd01... > Hi Robin, > > As Jeff said, your feedback in invaluable.
