Annotations and dimensions in AutoCAD LT

Annotate your designs with notes, labels, dimensions, and leaders.

Add annotations to your drawing to provide additional information using text, tables, fields, hatch patterns, and more.

Create text and dimensions

Learn how to create annotations (including text and dimensions) and change their appearance using styles.

Creating multiline text

Multiline text fits within a boundary that you specify and is treated as a single objectl

Creating text styles

The text style determines characteristics such as font and oblique angle.

Editing text objects

The easiest way to edit text is to simply double-click it.

A multileader object consists of a leader, an arrowhead, and a note. Multileaders can be created arrowhead first, tail first, or content first. Watch the video to learn more about creating multileaders.

Use dimension styles to control the appearance of dimensions. Dimension styles store settings such as:

  • Arrowheads
  • Dimension lineweights
  • Alternate units
  • Text size
  • Tolerances

You can create horizontal, vertical, aligned, and radial dimensions with the DIM command.

Dimensioning is the process of adding measurement annotation to a drawing.
