SetTypeAngle Text Command

SETTYPEANGLE Text Commands

Sets the type angle at the insertion point, for selected text or for a style tag.

settypeangle [ROTATE angle] [SKEW slantangle twistangle] [DOCUMENT name | WINDOW name | STYLETAG name]

ROTATE/D The rotation angle. Default=current.

SKEW/D The slant and twist angle.

Default=current.

DOCUMENT/s The document name.

WINDOW/s The window name.

STYLETAG/s Sets the attribute for a style tag.

Notes:

This sets the italic slant angle for fonts that lack a true italic style, and also allows you to twist and rotate blocks of text. To set only the italic slant angle, set the slantangle to the desired value and set the twistangle to 0.

Examples:

settypeangle rotate 25

settypeangle skew 15 30

settypeangle rotate 14 styletag 'Rotated Text'
