Hi all,

is there any command to type text in sketcher environment & use it for oad or pocket as i want to engrave it.

but there is a work arround

1. Create a drawing file and with Text Button insert your text (try to position the text closer to the lower left corner of the drawing - this is the origin of the sheet)
2. Save this as DWG or DXF
3. Close the file
4. Open the DWG/DXF
5. Copy the imported text
6. Go to Part/Surface workbench
7. Create a Sketch
8. Paste in this Sketch
9. Position and/or scale your text
10. Exit Sketcher an create what you want..
