Here at CAD-a-Blog a typical post will contain tips, tricks, and other techniques. This time I want to provide an example of what not to do.
Typically a drawing set will require a set of notes. AutoCAD has a multiline text feature. Do not create a set of notes out of single lined text, especially when there are 17 different notes, many of which require more than one line. Also do not create a wipeout object for each line. Yes. It is a waste of time to create a wipeout object for each line of text.
If I ever hear of any of my readers doing this on purpose I may block you! I know, idle threats.
This is how it should have been done. One multiline text object with the background mask option turned on. See, now it wasn't that difficult now was it?
Use the tools in AutoCAD that are there to help you. Don't do things the hard way.
