The Place Parallel Text tool options palette.

This tool is used to place text between a previously drawn planar line and its parallel, which is automatically calculated by the program. As with the Place Text tool, activating this tool invokes the Place Parallel Text tool options palette, which is almost identical to the Place Text options palette, except that the Standing option does not apply here and it is dimmed.

 

To generate this type of text, with the tool active, click on the line (path) from which the parallel line will be derived. The 3D Text Editor dialog is invoked, where you type the text, as before. The text is generated between the two parallel lines as soon as you press OK. It is in edit mode and can be further revised, either graphically or by changing the settings in the palette. See examples on the right.
