AutoCAD 2013: Add a Strikethrough to Text

You can now easily add a strikethrough to text objects such as MTEXT, MLeaders, Dimensions and text that is within Tables. Sorry, this doesn’t work for DTEXT (single line text). If you would like an automated way to add a strikethough for DTEXT visit Lee-mac’s site [found here].

To add a Strikethrough:

  • Double click the text object to open the text editor.
  • Select (highlight) the text that will have the strikethrough applied to
  • Click the new Strikethrough button that is found on the “Formatting” panel of the “Text Editor” contextual tab.
