Q - question

Arc text in AutoCAD LT.

A - answer It is not easy to draw circular text (text along an arc) in AutoCAD LT as there is not the ARCTEXT Express Tool.

As a (limited) workaround you can insert a WordArt object from MS Word. In AutoCAD LT, use Insert > OLE Object and select "Microsoft Word Picture" or "Microsoft Word Document". In MS Word use the WordArt tool (toolbar) to write your arc text. Save and exit Word.
