Breakdown of configuration options

Large Title Text

Commands affected:  LTITL, LTITLC

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.

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

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.

Commands affected:  STITL, STITLC, Room Symbol (unless customized, the room symbol's two room names and room number attributes use the APS-STITLE text style which uses this font style)

Character(s) for degree symbol in above font:  Enter the symbol or symbols that will create the degree symbol ( ) in the text style created by the "notes" font file selected above. Most text styles will use %%d to create the degree symbol but some like the "Archstyl" text style use other characters ( ^ =   in the "Archstyl" text style)
