For making nice Remarks on a drawing, I want to Align my text better.


Can you make the next functions in the Text box (Format Text) :



  •  Bullets
  1.  Numbering

Thanks in advance,

    Fred Bellekom

@ jletcher, I clicked on this post in hopes of informing Fred B. In a polite waythat this idea has already been posted and accepted.  I see that you have already done this in what seems like a very curt and rude way. 


Good manners don't cost a thing.

Peace out!

jletcher - Can you expand on your response of how Tabs, Bullets and Numbering, common word processing functions (Microsoft style) falls under Symbols?

Dear Letcher,

Thanks for the work-a-round. But I nomally want to use the front door, not the back door.

I'm glad that you are also aware that you can be an expert on Inventor, but your remarks can be better. Everyone has something to work on. ;-)


Please remind that everyone on this forum wants to improve Inventor, and that don't always needs to be your tast. There are a lot of engineers that has used AutoCAD and now went to Inventor. It is for them easier to have a comfortable transfer.


With great respect for your knowledge,

Sketch Symbols definatly has their place which we use for items that 99% of the time are not modified as this is how we standardize on notes, but there still is a great need for us to be able to manually create text on a file by file basis as the text is unique and to be able to do it w/ word processer type functionality definately would improve our productivitiy and relieve some frustration.


Even the Sketch symbol dialog box doesn't have the functionality, so adding it to Sketch symbol generation would improve the functionality of creating and modifying sketch symbols also.


This is something that has been neglected for many many releases.
