The sketchup users sometimes face problem with sketchup text. SketchUp text belongs to a "face me" object, it moves and does not stay at the time of orbiting the model. As no two apps image text the same way, it become difficult to obtain WYSIWYG text output to printers or CAD. By using FlatText, the sketchup users can resolve this issue easily.
Similar to 3D Text, it moves where it is placed and remains there. It is also possible to edit everything about it.
If various texts are exported to CAD, this is an ideal method to obtain perfect WYSIWYG performance. There is no need to clean up your text in CAD. The colors of the text, leader lines, and arrowheads can also be set.
FlatText comprises of five built-in fonts, and there are free font packs with various more fonts here.
