Key Points

  • To edit existing text, select desired text item in the "Text Annotations" box
  • To add new text click the "Add" button and edit the newly created item
  • To change the wording edit the "Expression" text box and press enter (or click the update button)
  • Once you have selected a text item you can modify where it appears on the plot using layout
  • You can also change it's font, size, bold/italic and color

How Layout Works

  • Item layout is always relative to an object
  • The orientation is where the text appears on that relative object
  • The alignment is how the text rectangle itself is positioned
  • Rotation is clockwise starting at the horizon
