Summary

Returns all coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects whose Text Width property complies with the Query.

Syntax

TextWidth : Number

Number will follow the measurement units currently employed for the document – either Imperial (mil; 1mil = 0.001inch) or Metric (mm; 1mm = 0.001meter).

A specific option for the measurement unit can be specified – overriding the default units specified at the document level – through use of an additional measurement unit-based keyword:

  • AsMils(TextWidth) : Number – to specify a width in mil.
  • AsMM(TextWidth) : Number – to specify a width in mm.

Example Usage

TextWidth = 6
Returns all coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have an Text Width property which is 6 current measurement units.

TextWidth >= 0.127
Returns all coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have an Text Width property which is greater than, or equal to, 0.127 current measurement units.

AsMils(TextWidth) Between 4 And 8
Returns all coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have an Text Width property which is greater than, or equal to, 4mil and less than, or equal to, 8mil.

AsMM(TextWidth) < 0.1778
Returns all coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects that have an Text Width property which is less than 0.1778mm.

Tips

  1. The Text Width property is only defined for coordinate, original dimension and text string (comment, designator, free) objects.
