Creating Text in a Circular Path in AutoCad

It is a unique trick to enter text in a circular path. To do so, type TEXT and then Enter. Type just a single character, such as 'r' as the text.

Next use the Array command to create a polar array of the text character. Select the text and give the exact number for total number of items prompt, then press OK.

You will get 'r' in a circular path. You can then edit each text character and replace 'r' with the character you need.

Note: Be sure in the polar array at the "total no of items" prompt to enter the exact number of text that you need.
