Is it possible to make a letter centered in a circle, similar to the "A button" of a wii remote. I've tried but can only seem to get it to look centered as opposed to it actually being centered. Any ideas?
If you were to draw a construction line across the circle, coincident at both ends, dimensions half the height of the intended text size below the centre, you could use that line as the guide curve for the text with centre alignment.
That seems like way too much work for something that seems so simple. You should be able to pick the center of the circle, center align the text and be done. Text height can be edited later, or calculated in advance. Sounds like an enhancement request to me.
Mike, you should probably be using the likes of a guide curve to control your text position anyway, adding a dimension in relation to the centre point should not be of great difficulty.
I should be clear, this is when adding text in a sketch with the intention of creating a feature.
A couple of options that I can think of:
1) As Tom posted, use a balloon instead of a standard note. Or if that won't work:
2) Place a rectangle centered on the circle. Place the note, RMB on it and select "Snap to rectangle center", select the four sides of the rectangle and the note will snap to the center. Place the rectangle in a layer that's turned off to hide it. That's a lot of steps but it will work.
As Mike said, an enhancement request to add "Snap to circle center" to the RMB drop-down sounds like a pretty good idea.
These note ideas will work good if all you want is a note. My suggestion was based on my assumption that you would like to create a feature from this text, it is my understanding that you cannot create a feature such as an extrude or cut using annotations.
I had assumed that it was a note in a drawing, so my ideas are no good.
I think all ideas are equally valid until the assumption factor can be eliminated.
Thank you. I suppose I should have phrased that differently. The ideas were not necessarily not good, just not relevant to your situation.
