How to snap texts in title block

Recommended Posts


It appears that all the texts have been inserted the same distance away from the centre point of the cell. Measure how far that is for one of the texts, and then move all the texts to the left. I reckon the distance is 0.1549 but you can check measure that yourself.

Looks like someone changed the justification for them in the Properties Palette instead of using JUSTIFYTEXT.

In your case it looks like "MIDDLE RIGHT"  justify was how the block was originally set up.  Someone then changed the justification to "MIDDLE CENTER" - throwing off all the text placement.


If you want to fix it all at once, just select all the text in the block, go into the properties window and change the justification back to "MIDDLE RIGHT" and it will recenter all at one time.


If you want to keep the justification "MIDDLE CENTER", like you have it in the drawing, you would just need to use a move command and move all of the MTEXT's over to the left slightly.
