    Can't get circular text pattern to line up

    Aaron Tuck

      I have to do a lot of circular text patterns on products. 

       

      Quite often there is a few "lines" of text that need to be spaced evenly. Eg. "COMPANY NAME"      "PRODUCT CODE"      "32 mm" etc etc.

       

      I can't for the life of me understand why solidworks hasn't included a start angle for circular text patterns. I end up having to put a huge space at the end of all the groups of text to make them line up. Usually I can get it right, but this time am trying to position the text so it isn't over the area where I have a circular feature of screw bosses.

       

      Is there any way of doing this? If not, it would be a good addition to the circular text pattern options.
