QUESTION

My door and window labels are too small when I print. How can I increase the size of the text and change the font to suit my needs?


ANSWER

In Chief Architect, a Text Style is a saved set of attributes that can be assigned to any object that displays text, such as Text, Callouts, Markers, Dimensions, Schedules, CAD objects, and object labels.


 To modify the text style of labels

  1. Select Edit> Default Settings , click the arrownext to the Text, Callouts, and Markers heading to expand the list.

     
  2. Click the Text Styles category to highlight it and click Edit.


  3. In the Saved Text Style Defaults dialog, under "Available Text Styles" will be listed the Text Styles saved with this plan. Choose Default Label Style and click Edit.

    • If this is a plan that was brought forward from an earlier version it will have text styles for labels of different objects such as Window Label Style and Door Label Style.

      Note: In Chief Architect X3 and prior the settings for labels were located in the Schedules defaults if no ­schedule was present, and in the Schedule Specification dialog if one was.


  4. In the Text Style Defaults - Default Label Style dialog it is possible to change the font, size, and color of labels.




  5. When finished modifying the Text Style, click OK to close the Text Style Defaults dialog.


  6. Click OK to close the Saved Text Style Defaults dialog.


  7. Click Done to close the Default Settings dialog.
