Hello,

Is it possible to edit text in plan using a 2D hotspot?

I've been able to get the text to display within a 2D Hotspot box but not able to adjust it.

Although I'm fairly certain it isn't possible, I thought it was worth asking if there is actually a way of working around it.

I tried using a bit of code with this functionality to get it to actually display the text in the box:
Code: Select all
		hotspot2 0,	0, hsID, half_sz1, 1+128	!BASE
			hsID = hsID + 1
			hotspot2 -1,	0, hsID, half_sz1, 3	!REFERENCE
			hsID = hsID + 1
			hotspot2 half_sz1,	0, hsID, half_sz1, 2, sz1, `1:1 Symbol Width`
Thanks

Do you mean a stretchy text box like you asked for here?

So with this object, you are wanting to be able to adjust the bounding box of text that is editable in plan view without the need to open a dialogue?
