AutoCad :: Changing Text Style In A Drawing

Mar 4, 2012

changing text style in a drawing. Let's say there is a drawing where the font style is standard, or the standard is overwritten in the text box (different size or font). I want to create a new text style which uses a new text size and font.

If i select the text which was created earlier and switch text style to the one i just created only the size of the text changes not, and the font remains the same.

But if i enter the text formatting box select the text and in style i select the one i created (even though is already selected) the font will change as well. The problem with this solution is the time needed to change every text in a large drawing.

If i use MATCHPROP the same thing, the size of the text will change but not the font.

Is there a way to change both the size and font of the text fast and easy?

AutoCAD LT :: Changing Text Style On All Texts In Drawing

May 22, 2012

As Topic explains, just realized ( to my embarrasment ) that I have just done every text in an entire drawing with text style "standard" instead of our own "ETR".

There is no difference in font/height/width or anything, reason I need to change it is because we need to send our drawing to our client in .dwg format and he will then copy everything we've done on the drawing and import it into his  own drawing. Problem is if he doesn't use the same font as standard style as we do our text might be dislocated in some places.

Problem is many of my texts are attributes within blocks and they need to change too. Any quick and smart way to change every text and attribute on the drawing, nested or not to another textstyle?

AutoCAD Visual LISP / AutoLISP :: Changing Text Style Used By Table Style

Jun 29, 2012

I am looking for a way to change the text style used by a table style with Visual LISP.  So far I have been able to get the IAcadTableStyle object from the acad_tablestyle dictionary, but there is no property for text style.  Is this even possible?  Code and results are below.

(defun DumpTableStyles ()
(setq dict (vla-get-dictionaries (vla-get-activedocument(vlax-get-acad-object))))
(setq TableStyles (vla-item dict "acad_tablestyle"))
(vlax-for TableStyle TableStyles
(vlax-dump-object TableStyle)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Text Style Keeps Changing?

Jun 28, 2012

This has happened in a couple of drawings now. The STYLE dialog keeps saying "The current style has been modified. Do you want to save your changes?" even when I have changed nothing at all. Anyway, I select the style I want, hit Apply and  Set Current, and put in some text. Now I list that text, and sure enough, instead of being on L80 it says L-BASE|Standard or some such thing. If I use DTEXT, Style and set it there, my text will be the correct style - but if I go back to the Style dialog box, L-BASE|Standard will show as current again. Acad C3D 2011.

AutoCad :: Changing Style Of Single Text?

Jun 8, 2012

I need to change the style of my single text, not Mtext, but just text on AutoCAD 2011. If I try to edit Mtext then the Ribbon on the top of Cad changes to Text Editor and allows me to modify the text as I require. However when I click into single text all that happens is the text becomes highlight and I no longer get the option to change the style or font. What toolbar or option is missing so I can get it back as normal.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2012 - Text Style Changing

Feb 11, 2013

I am using Civil 3D 2012 and seem to have a reoccurring problem with the text styles changing. At the start of the day, I will open my drawing and find that my text style has changed and I am not sure what is causing this. I check my text styles and none of my settings has change nor has the text style. Nothing seems to fix the problem other than running a repair of the system.

AutoCad :: Titleblock Update Routine Changing Text Style?

Dec 5, 2012

I have a problem with some of our drawing sheet attributes that we are updating from a CSV file. The attributes are originally in Arial Bold but when we run the update routine the font disappears, if we run the update routine a second time it reappears correctly updated but the font has changed from Arial Black to Standard.

I have rebuilt the titleblock and get the same result.

I cant get into the routine because its locked away in an FAS file and the manager is on holidays for a couple of weeks.

Lightroom :: 3 - Changing Style Of Text Font When Inserting Captions?

Aug 12, 2012

I am trying to produce a slideshow in LR3 of a series of travel shots. Problem is that I want to insert a nice caption to each individual shot showing the place, country etc etc.

It seems the only way to do this is to enter the caption initially in the Metadata in the Library module and then select " Captions " in the Custom text box in the Slideshow module.

My problem is that I hate the clunky big white text that shows on the slideshow. I cannot seem to find anywhere where I can change this to a nicer text font, style and colour. You can change the style text in the text overlay panel but that then applies to the whole slideshow. I need a nice individual caption for each shot.

AutoCAD 2013 :: Titleblock Text Style Changes When Placing It In Drawing

Aug 23, 2012

I got this weird issue when placing my custom made titleblocks in AutoCAD. All the attributes of the block jump to standard text style when placing it in my drawing. Allthough this ain't allways happening. It seems to me like there's a setting for this but i can't find out how. 

It can happen suddenly too. Like when i open a new drawing and then add my titleblock, it's like it should be most of the times. Allthough when i start to edit the block (scale/move/copy,etc) it can change like you can see in the drawing below.

Offcourse, as a company, you do not want to deliver your drawings with a titleblock like this.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing Dimension Style Reverts To Different Style

May 7, 2012

I am working with a template, that doesn't allow me to change the dimension style. In the project the Use Style Library is set to Read/Write. I have created my dimension style, at this point just a copy of the ANSI standard with a text size difference. I went to my template and set that syle as my default, and saved it. Now the fact that it doesn't automatically update the drawing I had alreadycreated is a nuisance, however if I creat a new drawing, the style has reverted to a different standard, that is not even the ANSI default. If I right click a dimension and change the dimstyle to what I saved it does update, but if I try to change the style again it defaults to a random dimstyle, AND changes the style even if I hit cancel. So... the question is how to make the changes stick?

AutoCAD Inventor :: Style Update (or Style Update Check) Upon Open Of A Drawing?

Nov 21, 2013

I am wondering if it is possible to do a style update (or style update check) upon open of a drawing? 

The example would be that I have stuff made from way back that the colors/dimension sytles ect dont match the current standard and upon opening a file where they are not current, it would either prompt to update immediatly OR update automatically with no prompting (preferred method).

I am doing a massive amount of updates from old files recently and to save myself 1 - 3 clicks per drawing would be wonderful.

AutoCAD Architecture :: Changing Single Door Style?

Jan 10, 2012

I'm new to Architecture Desktop (especially 2012), I dabbled with it a little bit years ago.

I'm doing a floor plan and I want to change one door to a double door. I changed the style and it changed all the doors. So I did a search and saw something about doing a style override in the "Edit Object Display." So, I checked all the "Object Override" boxes in there. Buuut...when I right click on that door and do "Edit Door Style" it still changes ALL the doors in the drawing to double doors.

I need to change my parts list style for all of my drawings from this point forward.  For the life of me I can't figure out how to do this.  I have my project set to read-write and I've tried this 10 ways til Sunday but it won't take.  There are several things that I want to achieve but I'd be happy with just one of them for now.  All I want to do is remove the ITEM column from my default parts list.  After this I want to merge rows by part number, etc.

AutoCAD Inventor :: Changing Section Style / Colour?

Jul 8, 2011

I want to section my assemblies to show some internal detail, but sometimes it is hard to tell what is part of the cut and what isn't.

Is it possible to colour the sectioned area red instead of having it look like a slice through a block on concrete?

By the way, this is in the model environment, not the drawing environment.

AutoCad 2D :: Changing Dimensions Style With Window Select

Jun 16, 2011

Using 2012. On pre-07 versions I've used, I could change the style of all dimensions in a drawing by selecting all entities (or using window selection) and then selecting the new dimension style from the combo box, regardless of what layers or entities were selected. Any dimension within that selection gets changed to the new style selected. In 2012, if I select any entity that isn't a dimension, no dimensions styles appear in the combo box, and so this method doesn't work.

Is there some new setting preventing this from working?

AutoCAD .NET :: Changing Dimension Style Property To Same Value Crashes Program

Sep 30, 2013

In my code, I create a copy of dimension style:

 s3 = New DimStyleTableRecords3.CopyFrom(vz)s3.Name = nazovtst.Add(s3)_trans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(s3, True)

Then, in another part of the code, I open the new style and change a property:

Using trans As Transaction = db.TransactionManager.StartTransaction ds = trans.GetObject(ds.ObjectId, OpenMode.ForWrite) ds.Dimtxsty = s2TextStyle.ObjectId trans.Commit() End Using
this works OK for the first time, but when I run the code again, I don't create the new style, I just take the existing one and changing the Dimtxtsty property to the value it already has causes AutoCAD crash

AutoCAD 2010 :: Select All Lines And Changing Dimension Style

Aug 9, 2012

I just got a new job with AutoCAD 2011. In the previous version (was using 2008 beore), I could select all lines, dimensions hatches, and then change the dimension style. But with this new version, as soon as I select anything that is not a dimension, like a hatch pattern or a regular line, I can't change the dimension style anymore. Is there anyway to change this back to how it was?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Data Link Is Changing Table Style?

Mar 16, 2012

I have created a table style in ACAD 2012 with all of the cells formatted to what I need.  The trouble begins when I bring in a BIAS excel data link to populate the table.  I have tried every option in the insert table steps and have even tried all the different options under the modify excel link options.  I have toggled the use excel formatting on and off, which does change the table size a small bit, but does not allow the table style to take affect.

I have attached a screen shot of the "good" and "bad" tables.  The bad table is what the good table comes in as and it is also what happens everytime the table link updates.  It always reverts back to the bad style and then I have to change the table back to the good one by hand - changing each column individually.

Is there a way to attach a data link to a table with the table style holding its shape and formatting?

This happens on all of my drawings and using all kinds of different excel links.

how to bring in the data link??
