Rectangles can hold typed text or many pre-defined text items.
21. Multi-Plot | Insert Rectangle. A Rectangle will appear in the middle of your sheet with the options dialogue box as shown below.
The Rectangle Sub-View Options Dialogue opens automatically when you create a new rectangle, but you can also access it from a <right-click> on any rectangle sub-view and selecting Rectangle Sub View Options or by <double left-clicking> on the Rectangle Sub-view.
Note: Sometimes it is useful to use an empty rectangle just for its border graphic (User Defined, no text).
22. Type “Drawn By” in the text box. Multiple lines are allowed. Change horizontal alignment to Center. Check the Wrap text option. Click on the Font button and change the size to 12. Press OK twice.
Arrange the new rectangle to the lower right of the page as in the figure below.
23. Create two more rectangles:
- In the first, select Print Date from the Text type drop down menu.
- In the second, select Page X of N from the Text type drop down menu.
24. Arrange the two new rectangles to fit in the first rectangle as in the figure below.
Notice how the snap to grid feature helps line up edges.
