Are you tired of having to align text to an object at an odd angle the old-fashioned way? With this tip from Scott Lawson, you can align text to any line or object in just a few picks. Create a quick button macro using the Torient command and the nearest osnap, launch the command, choose the text object, pick the first and second points to align, and voila.
This macro works with most versions of AutoCAD, Civil 3D, etc. with Express Tools installed.
Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: This is a good example of scripting a frequently used command to reduce keystrokes and save time.
