Easily Overlooked Features - Spring 2011

 

This section is designed to highlight one or two features per issue that may be overlooked because they are not made visually obvious with a toolbar button.

Align commands
The align commands are available under the Edit menu. These lines can apply to grid text, attribute text, and analysis text. The group of commands consist of the following:

Align Left: This command aligns all selected text to the left hand edge of the control text.
Align Right: This command aligns all selected text to the right hand edge of the control text.
Align Top: This command aligns all selected text to the top edge of the control text.
Align Bottom: This command aligns all selected text to the bottom edge of the control text.

In order to use any of the Align commands, multiple text strings need to be selected. In the schematic, the strings can be a combination of attribute text and grid text.

The first text string to be selected will be the control text. The control text is denoted in the schematic and the analysis plot by a black rectangle that is displayed in the upper left corner of the text string's select region. In the figure below, the three model statements in the schematic have been selected. The N1 model statement is designated as the control text. The align commands will use this string to determine the alignment baselines.
