    How to draw vertical text in Layout

    mohkraats

      I can draw text in xPCB Layout.

      I can choose an angle and size as well.

      But, now I don't want to tilt the whole string, just write vertical.

      That is leaving the single characters at 0 degrees angle, but have the string vertical: the characters one above the other.

      This, so you don't have to turn the board to be able to read the text.

       

      How can I do that, besides drawing each character separately and trying to get them lined up above each other.....

          What you want and need is the Multiline Text Editor feature from Drawing Editor added and supported in Expedition.  (Or a font with characters that are rotated 90 degrees.)  Either way, this is an Idea Enhancement Request.  In the meantime, I suggest writing an automation script to accomplish the placement and alignment of each character in an input

          s

          t

          r

          i

          n
