All the texts dimensioned in autocad have their own text style. This section is mainly about what is and how to set the font, text style.
Font and Character style
The font is composed of letters or Chinese characters with the same structure rule. English characters have the Roman, Romantic, Complex, Italic font etc. Chinese characters have the Arial, bold, regular front etc. autocad offers various fonts including the *.ttf front under the directory of window system and the *.shx font support for large fonts and Western under the directory of autocad.
The user can define the text style with fonts, character size, Obliquing Angle, the text direction and so on according to their own needs. In autocad graphics, each dimension text has its specific text style, and the character size is determined by the character height and width.
