To create an item text for an element, first select this function using the text type button.
Then position the mouse cursor in a 2D view over the element for which the item text is to be created. A left mouse-click now selects the element and at the same times defines the position of the line connecting the text to the element. If the element can be uniquely identified, for example a support, the text is immediately positioned. If several elements overlap, for instance a window in a wall, a context menu is provided over which the desired element can be selected. The text is positioned only after an element has been selected.
All properties of an item text, such as the content and style of the text, can be changed if necessary in the dialog, which is activated by a double-click on the item text or over the properties context menu available for a selected item text.
