Free Align Text to Curve

From the Autodesk App Store:

The program enables the user to dynamically align a new or existing Text or MText object to a selected curve, with intuitive placement controls available at the command-line.

The program may be used to align an existing text object in the drawing, or the user may create a new text object by specifying the text content.

Multiple copies of a text object may be aligned to the selected curve if the 'Multiple Text Mode' is enabled in the Settings menu.

Text is dynamically aligned in real-time, with the text offset & rotation relative to the curve controllable by the user.

With the 'Readability' setting enabled, text is automatically rotated to preserve readability and will never appear upside-down.

When using the program to align an MText object, the MText Background Mask may be toggled on & off during text alignment.

The program is compatible for use with:
  • Lines
  • LWPolylines
  • 2D (Heavy) Polylines
  • 3D Polylines
  • Arcs
  • Circles
  • Ellipses
  • Elliptical Arcs
  • Splines

Furthermore, these objects may be primary objects in the drawing, or nested (to any depth) within a block or xref.

The program will also perform successfully under all UCS & View settings and with Annotative Text Styles.
