Text Symbology - PDS - 2011 R1 - Help

Project Engineer HVAC Help


The Text Symbology option sets MicroStation text symbology (text height, text width, spacing, font) to the values associated with a specific PE-HVAC symbology definition. You can also use this command if you want to place MicroStation text in your design file, but have it appear using active PE-HVAC symbologies.

Selecting the appropriate text symbology from the menu before adding text to the design file ensures that similar annotations have the same graphic parameters throughout the drawing. The Text Symbology option sets the parameters as read from the default symbology file.
