Rotating Text on Custom Object

Chris Pooley
Enthusiast

Hi All,

I Know there is another topic on exactly what I need to do, but I don't understand the solution and I can not reply on that thread for some reason, so I am creating another thread.

 

I have created a custom object as a "space saver" for washing machines and dryers, I have managed to have the text customizable, but I would also like to have the text rotatable.

 

I looked at the treads from back in 2015 and I have the additional commands as per Barry's answer but I keep getting warnings like "Keywords can't be used......" and "Missing Comma......"

 

Here is some of the txt from the 2D script so there is no re-typing:-

 

 

define style{2} "AC_STYLE_1" "Arial", textsize, 0

paragraph "AC_PRG_6" 2, 0, 0, 0, 1
pen penAttribute_3
set style "AC_STYLE_1"
textcontent
endparagraph
textblock "AC_TEXTBLOCK_6" 6.001509469946, 5, 360, 1, 1, 1,
"AC_PRG_6"
ADD2 133.6018704044, -18.33101609568,
ROT2 textrotation,
richtext2 0, 0, "AC_TEXTBLOCK_6",
DEL 2

 

 

Any advice?

 

Thank you 🙂

In the line with the "richtext" command there is a comma too much at the end 😉

Thanks runxel,

 

I changed that, I am now getting this warning:-

Runxel told you about the comma at the end of the RICHTEXT2 command.

You also have one at the end of the ROT2 command.

The comma means it is trying to run the next line as part of the same command, which is not correct.

Thank you both for your help, that was it, it did not like the commas at the end.

 

Thank you so much.
