Align Text to Curve

Align Text to Curve

Lee Mac Programming



The program enables the user to dynamically align a new or existing Text or MText object to a selected curve, with intuitive placement controls available at the command-line.


The program may be used to align an existing text object in the drawing, or the user may create a new text object by specifying the text content.


Multiple copies of a text object may be aligned to the selected curve if the 'Multiple Text Mode' is enabled in the Settings menu.


Text is dynamically aligned in real-time, with the text offset & rotation relative to the curve controllable by the user.


With the 'Readability' setting enabled, text is automatically rotated to preserve readability and will never appear upside-down.


When using the program to align an MText object, the MText Background Mask may be toggled on & off during text alignment.


The program is compatible for use with:


· Lines

· LWPolylines

· 2D (Heavy) Polylines

· 3D Polylines

· Arcs

· Circles

· Ellipses

· Elliptical Arcs

· Splines


Furthermore, these objects may be primary objects in the drawing, or nested (to any depth) within a block or xref.


The program will also perform successfully under all UCS & View settings and with Annotative Text Styles.

    Hafid Selougha | February 05, 2016

    It is nice and has some useful capabilities but does not curve text along arcs and splines.

    Lee Mac (Publisher) | February 08, 2016

    Thank you for your feedback Hafid - it is not possible to curve a standard text object, however, you are welcome to use my Slinky Text program ( if you require the text to curve around arcs & splines.

    This is the way AutoCAD should work! All of Lee Mac's tools are great. This one runs on BricsCAD as well :o)

    Lee Mac (Publisher) | December 13, 2013

    Thank you Donald - I'm delighted that you find my programs useful! That's great to hear that the application is also performing well in BricsCAD too!
