VCS Hints: (Tt) Text Table and (To) Text Orientation Table Panels    


Access: via Main Menu - `Basic' -> `Text Table (Tt) and (To)'

The (Tt) Text and (To) Text Orientation Tables are displayed simultaneously.

The (Tt) Text Table lists text attribute set names that define the font, spacing, expansion, and color index. VCS treats the text attribute as one of the eight secondary elements that are used in describing the three primary elements (template, graphics method, data). Note: the `default' text cannot be removed or edited.

The (To) Text Orientation Table lists text orientation attribute set names that define the character height, angle, path, and horizontal and vertical alignment. VCS treats the text orietation attribute as one of the eight secondary elements that are used in describing the three primary elements (template, graphics method, data). Note: the `default', `defcenter', `defright', `defcentdown', and `defcentup' text orientation cannot be removed or edited.
