Adding Text

The Text object is used to place sections of text in the Plan view. Like other Plan view objects, the Text object does not appear in the Perspective view or during Realtime Walkthroughs. If you wish to add text that appears in both the Plan and Perspective views, see Adding 3D Text.

To add text to the plan view:

1.   Click the Plan tab to switch to the Plan view.

2.   Click the Add Text button that is found near the top of the screen under the Plan Detail tab.

3.   Click the area of your landscape design where you wish to place the text.

4.   Type the text you would like to display and then click the OK button.


      For complex sections of text that include tables, variable fonts, and other detailed formatting, you can create the text in Microsoft Word or Excel and then add the document to your landscape design using the Embedded Object tool.

      All plan detail objects can only be added and viewed in the Plan view, unlike other objects that are compatible with all views. See Adding Plan Detail for more information.
