Sketch Text in Drawing

Question asked by Kurt Jacobson on Jan 30, 2017

Hello,

I am trying to layout the graphics for a machine control panel using a Solidworks drawing.  I thought this would work well as I could use the Sketch Text tool to place text accurately and make it follow curves, but it appears that the Sketch Text tool is not available in the context of a drawing.  This seems ridiculous, so I hope I'm just missing something.  I know I could make the sketch in a part file and then copy it to a drawing but that seems like a poor solution.

 

Does anybody know how to use the Sketch Text tool (or something similar) in a drawing?  Using Notes is not a suitable solution.

 

Thanks in advance for any help,

Kurt
