Working with Text Styles

Each text object has a style associated with it. The current text style sets the font, size, angle, orientation, and other text characteristics -- all contained in the TextStyle object.

Except for the default STANDARD style, you must create any text style you want to use. New text uses properties from the current text style. To create a text style, use the Add method to create a new TextStyle object and add it to the TextStyles Collection object. The Add method takes a TextStyle name as input.

If you change an existing style's font or orientation, all text using that style is changed to use the new font or orientation. Changing text height, width factor, and oblique angle does not change existing text but does change subsequently created text objects.
