Text and Mtext

You can create several paragraphs of text as a single multiline text (Mtext) object. With the built-in editor, you can format the text appearance, columns, and boundaries.

TEXT Style

Set unique fonts, sizes, angles, orientations and other characteristics, and preset styling options let you instantly customize text size and height, font type, dimension lines and arrows, extension line, unit and tolerance, annotate right when you create them, so eash drawing has standardised signature.

Annotation Scale

The GstarCAD8 has added annotative scale and some related settings to objects, spaces and viewports. The annotative object, such as text, dimension, block or hatch, could automatically adjust its size when changing the annotative scales in spaces and viewports. Users could arrange and plot drawings for different scales in a faster way.


Extremely useful while preparing drawings with title block or table. Those fields that are marked with gray are stored in GstarCAD with special variables and they can be placed at any location inside the drawing with any text style. Fields are really nice additions that give you quick access to various types of information via TEXT, MTEXT or an Attribute.

Latest version of GstarCAD has complemented the FIELD command with the OBJECT option. Users could make the object attribute or formula as content of a FIELD. Users could select one of properties as content of a FIELD, such as the area of Hatch, the FIELD will automatically update when the Hatch boundary changes.


Measurement tools provide accurate annotation value on your drawn objects. These are highlighted by: Quick and Associative dimension, Linear, Jogged, Baseline, Leader, Tolerance, oblique, Dimension Styles, etc.

Associative Dimension

This function builds dynamic association between the dimension change and annotation update in model space. It helps to simplify the modification of entities with annotation in drawing.

Dimension Breaks

Places dimension breaks automatically at all the intersection points of the objects that intersect the selected dimension. Any dimension breaks that are created using this option are updated automatically when the dimension or intersecting object is modified.

Dimarc - Typical usage of Dimarc includes measuring the travel distance around a cam or indicating the length of electrical cable.

Dimjogged - Jogged Radius Dimension is applied if the center of an arc or circle is located off the layout and is not able to be displayed in its real location.

Dimspace - Dimspace automatically adjusts the space between parallel linear dimensions or angular dimensions in a drawing, keeping dimensions equidistant or aligned at dimension line.

Diminspect - Diminspect lets you effectively communicate how frequently manufactured parts should be checked and ensures that the dimension.


A leader object is a line or a spline with an arrowhead at one end and a multiline text object or block at the other. You can create, modify and add content to a leader object.


Multileader is an annotative function and is used to attach annotation to multiple leader lines. Multileader give additional information or special instruction in a point or specific area on your drawing.

Revision Cloud

Revision clouds are polylines that consist of sequential arcs. You can use it to call attention to parts of a drawing during the review stage. You can select a style for a revision cloud: Normal or Calligraphy. If you select Calligraphy, the revision cloud looks as if it was drawn with a calligraphy pen.


Spelling Check

Check the spelling of any specified text in a drawing with suggestion vocabulary. Supporting 8 languages

Barcode & QR Code

GstarCAD 2015 introduces two innovative features Barcode & QR Code, which will impact the way of storage and trace relevant drawing data in the CAD industry. Barcode & QR Code can be inserted to the drawings, accomplishing identification and correspondence between paper and electronic drawings.
