Breakdown of configuration options

Keynote List Title Text

Command affected:  KEYLIST

This is where you specify the properties for the title text for the keynote list. 

Font name:  This is where you name the font that the APS system uses for this type of text. The default name is shown in the image above but you may change it to whatever you like. This value was added in APS-2007 because we found that some clients have CAD standards that require fonts to use a specific font name.

Font file:  Press the "Browse..." button to browse for the font file to use for this text style. You may select a standard AutoCAD text font file .SHX, a true type font .TTF (how to specify a TrueType font), or a .PFB/.PFA font file to use for this text. This style may be used just as you would any other text style, but this one will always use the values defined here.

Color and lineweight:  Select the color and lineweight for the text (how to select colors). If you are using release 14 or earlier the lineweight value will have no effect, but we encourage you to set it so you won't have to later when you upgrade.

Text Height:  Enter the height that you would like the text to be. This height value should be what you would use in a full scale drawing (scale factor = 1.0). The actual size of the text that is created is scaled with the scale of the drawing so it will always be the correct size.

Width Factor:  Enter the width factor that you would like for this text style.

Text Wrap Adjustment

Command affected:  KEYLIST

Often when using various font styles for the keynote list definitions an adjustment to the text wrap will need to be made. Specify a value here that will allow the text in the keynote list to fill the entire width of the list without extending beyond the border (if shown). 1.0 is normal but you may specify a larger value to get the text to go farther to the right before wrapping to the next line. A scale factor less than 1.0 will make the lines of text shorter. This value must be larger than zero. It may take several tries to find the perfect value to use for the font style you select.
