    Paul Barras | 三月 23, 2018 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    I like the way it works but we upgraded to 2018. Is there a time line as to when that will come out if it is being worked on right now.

  • This product works great

    This allowed me to complete work in CAD that I normally have to transfer to ARC GIS

  • Great Tool!!!

    Been using it for several years, so much better than text mask, easier than the alternatives. Thanks!

  • Mleader, Dimension support?
    Jon Messmer | 四月 13, 2017

    I like this, but I find I have to explode mleaders and dimensions in order to use it on them, which is a problem in itself. Is there a version coming where it will work with these?

  • Halo Text Stops Functioning
    BARRY DELMAR | 三月 21, 2017 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    Initially created Halo Text and everything looked fine. Then at some point during editing the halotext becomes a big blob and can't be read on screen, but still plots properly.

    Hi Al, could you send an email to the support address with a screenshot and the dwg that is causing this issue. Thanks

  • Security Warning
    Shane O'Rorke | 七月 25, 2016 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    After installing this package I get a warning during AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017 startup about Loading MDAP-HaloText.dll. Says 'The publisher of this executable file could not be virified and the file is not located in a trusted folder).

  • Great App. 2019 Support?
    Jeff Martt | 七月 07, 2016 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    I need this app. But it doesn't seem to load onto C3D 2019. Is there a new version coming?

    Mark Dubbelaar (发布者) | 七月 13, 2016

    Hi Jeff, I hope to have a 2017 version ready for updating very shortly

    Jeff Martt | 八月 04, 2016

    2017 version up and running. Thanks so much!

  • Don't know yet, still trying, idea is very good
    Andy Poon | 五月 15, 2015 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    I am using AutoCAD C3D 2015. After using HALOTEXT and follow the prompt, I came up letter with halo border but hidding under the letter, the halo should appear on top of letter, can anyone help?

  • Good for text bad for blocks, labels or points.
    Jeffrey Guptill | 二月 20, 2015 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    Any plans on making this able to use on blocks, labels or points?

    Mark Dubbelaar (发布者) | 四月 26, 2015

    I'm currently adding this functionality (although through another app) and should be available for free via the exchange store shortly. Stay tuned

  • Excellent tool
    Tomas Vargas | 十一月 20, 2013 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    It is a great tool, I was looking for it a lot, I used intensive in GIS with multiple data or satellite imagery. I would recommend add halo text to the attribute, due to in Autocad Map attributes or labels are often used, sometimes more than any text. Thanks,

    Ken Boldt | 八月 10, 2016

    I'm in the same boat, from what I can tell from your comment. When I apply a halo, it seems to just make my existing text thicker, but in the same colour. It doesn't seem to apply the specified halo colour to the text.

  • Works great, easy to use.
    Jason Maceachern | 七月 05, 2013 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    Works great, easy to use. Very similar effect to halo text in ArcGIS. Now, if only Autodesk could add this to their main product ... wishlist!

  • Good for Free
    Brian Chapman | 三月 31, 2013 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    This app would have been better if it worked on fonts like arial. I've been doing the same thing it does simply by copying text and changing it's width. A problem with this app is that the halo effect seems to only work if you have the Halo Text plugin. If you send the file, or a user opens without the plugin, the halo effects aren't there.

  • Great!!
    Ben De Vries | 六月 09, 2012 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    A great app that provides a functional alternative to the background mask in MText, especially on aerial photography drawings. Awesome.

  • Jarred Dickson | 四月 11, 2012 验证的下载 (这是什么?)

    Works well and provides a more visually pleasing alternative to Background Mask.
