Aligning Text to center

Hi All,

 

I might be going mad but I'm trying to align a bit of text to the center of the rectangle. This text will need to be changed a lot so I want the text to remain centered. At the moment it seems you can only align text using the bottom left hand point in Fusion 360. The text has a rectangle around it but when the text is changed its recreated losing any coincident's you manage to set on it. 

 

Any ideas? I'd rather not have to align my text by eye every time.

 

Thank You

Rob

Thank You James, I'll follow this and see what happens. Shame there isn't an easier way but hopefully future versions will change this.

Any better way of doing this?

 

I´m having the same issue, I need to engrave a bunch of nameplates.

I can nicely dimension the text and center it using midpoint constraints but all those constraints and dimensions vanish when I change the text.

 

The posted "solution" is ridiculous and doesnt deserve the name. Furthermore it doesnt even show what happens once you change the text and that´s the whole point of the authors and my question.

 

Thanks

Hi All,

 

I always appreciate a workaround, but cleary no acceptable solution here yet. Fusion team please improve the behavior of text in sketches.

 

Thanks,

 

Rod.
