General Usage Instructions

In the Precision edit box, type the number of digits to the right of the decimal point to use when the segment value is calculated.

In the Height edit box, type in the text height to use for the values that will be displayed.

In the Text Offset Distance from Start Point edit box, enter the distance from the ‘start point’ of selected polyline(s) to offset the text that will be inserted. The higher the value entered, the more the center of displayed text will move to the right.

In the Text on Layer list, select the layer to place the text on or pick the *New layer* to create a new layer and set a color.

Use the Erase Previous button to delete all the generated text after running once. This function will work in the current drawing session only. This is best used to experiment with the text height and/or the Precision values.

Pick the OK button and a prompt appears.
