Drawing Text <Back
Click the Text button in the toolbar, then you will be presented with a dialog to enter the text, font, size and style information. Then drag out the text direction from start to end. The text will become a single face, which can then be extruded as raised or lowered text.
Like edges, texts are drawn on existing objects, or on the standard plane that is facing the users view. Holding down Shift while dragging will constrain the angle to a multiple of 45 degrees.
