How to Center the Text in the Grid Bubble Using Advance Steel 2018

I had a client concerned about the placement of the text in the grid bubble. He noticed that the text was not centered as he would have them.

You are able to customize and adjust the text in Advance Steel 2018. The grid line text bubble can be modified from the Advance Steel Management tools “Default” category.

Simply select the “Use filter” box and type ball in the field just below.

Expand the Drawing-Presentation category and then the “General” subcategory.

You can further modify the balloon type for grids as well as the gap around the text in the X and Y direction. Furthermore, you can adjust the grid balloon radius.

Once the changes have been completed “Load settings in Advance” and back in the model” Update Defaults.”
