Q - question

How to make DWG texts readable in a 3D view (align to view)?

A - answer If you need to display your drawing containing texts (e.g. labeled survey points, legends, isometrics) from a general 3D direction view or even from the text plane (front view, side view), the texts will not be readable.

With a simple utility ViewText you can automatically align selected texts perpendicular to the vector of the current view and so make them readable (upright).

Download the ViewText add-on application from, load it with APPLOAD and start the VIEWTEXT command. Select the texts, paragraph texts or points and the application will rotate (align) them in the direction of the currently set 3D view in AutoCAD.
