  The Textfit command can achieve the automatic matching alignment between two specific points by adjusting the width of text while remain the height unchanged. For those annotation which need the text to restrict in a specific range, the user can use this command edit.

3. Notes:
1) The tension or compression can only operate in horizontal direction. If you specify the alignment of the two points which are not in the same horizontal line, the system will automatically measure the distance between two points, and automatically matching the text terminal in horizontal direction according to the distance.
2) the command is only valid for “Text” text.
